5 Things Men Truly Look For In A Wife
Marriage usually isn't the first thing on a guys mind. Let's face it. Most guys aren't looking for marriage before a certain age and those are just straight forward facts -- but, what we do know is that the thought crosses their mind ever so often. Every guy knows what he looks for in a woman and a wife, no matter how nonchalant he may seem according to the specific topic. We all know what we like, no matter how much we deny it. If you're curious about what most men look for in a wife, well your wishes have been granted. Keep scrolling if you dare and get inside the head of the man. Someone who will support him and all his endeavors. Whether you agree with his decisions or not, every guy wants that one person who will be down to ride regardless of the circumstances. 'For richer or for poor', remember? Someone who accepts him flaws and all. Nobodies perfect. Understand that. You are both a work in progress. Someone worth fighting for. It won't always be easy, but it will be worth it. Communication is key. If you feel a certain way, speak up. He will appreciate that more than you know. Marriage is not a one way street. Someone who matches his fly. Looks aren't everything, we get it. But who wouldn't want a trophy and someone who can make the sun shine on the gloomiest of days? Someone worth growing with. Growing old with someone is one of the most beautiful journey's two people can ever go on. 'Till' death do us part'. It sounds pretty extensive, but if you're down to ride -- they will be too. Buckle up and enjoy the ride. Men don't ask for too much. The feelings are mutual.
How Long is Too Long To Date?
A former coworker of mine just got engaged after living with and dating her now-fiance for SIX YEARS. While I think that's practically a common-law marriage, some people think that dating that long is necessary to make sure you're ready to commit to a life together. But here's the thing: Only you can know when you're ready to take the next step. But as a baseline, Ian Kerner, PhD, LMFT, licensed psychotherapist, couple's therapist and author of She Comes First, suggests that one to two years is often a good amount of time to date before getting engaged. Longer than that and you might just never get married or take your relationship more seriously and after ten or so years your relationship starts to break and you don't feel obligated to fix it. ONE TO TWO YEARS?! That sound like no time at all for me! But wait, its not necessarily about time! "I've worked with a lot of couples who have strong relationships, and they met and fell in love quickly and really got to know each other's friends and family," Kerner says. "They got to experience what it's like to live with each other or spend a lot of time with each other, go through some life cycle issues, like the loss of a family member or the loss of a friendship, or going to a wedding or funeral and really getting to see each other in a lot of different contexts and feel like it's a good match. And generally, that can happen in a year... You want to have some problems emerge and see how you deal with problems together. For me, it's more about the range of experiences that lend themselves to compatibility rather than the amount of time." My parents dated about 3.5 years (I think???) before getting engaged, then waited about 4 years after marriage to have me! But then again, they only saw each other on weekends because my mom lived in New Jersey and my dad lived in California so I guess at the end of the day they were physically together for about a year and a half haha! For me, I've been with my boyfriend for a little over a year but no WAY am I thinking about marriage so I don't think the 1-2 year rule applies to me. Do you think there is a cut-off point for dating, when you should tie the knot?
