Have you found the woman you should marry? While everyone is looking for different traits in their life partners, there are some essential traits you should seek, from empathy to consistency. These traits help you both to understand and love each other. The woman you’re dating should enrich your life. In fact, she should make it so amazing, that you can’t wait to marry her.
Here are 9 ways to know that the woman you’re with is the one you should marry.
1. She doesn’t get jealous or bothered easily
This is usually a very tricky slope because a couple is bound to be a little jealous and possessive towards each other. But being sensible and trusting each other is important if you want a happy life. Personal space is important for growth and it is up to both the partners whether they have enough trust in each other to allow them that. This is a better use of your time and energy, not just as a couple, but also as individuals.
2. She is honest with you and others
Honesty is a very important trait in a long-term relationship; if you can’t trust your partner, how can you tell them anything in confidence, or believe anything they said to you? Find someone who respects you enough to be honest with you, even when it is difficult for them.
3. She is consistent
Being consistent is a valuable virtue because it lets your partner know that you really are who you are. You haven’t sent your “representative” to get to know them during the first couple of months of dating, but then suddenly transform once they’ve committed themselves to you. If someone is unpredictable and volatile, it’s difficult to know how they will be acting towards you on a certain day, and that gets old no matter how aesthetically pleasing she is.
4. She makes you smile
When ever you are with her, she makes you really, really happy. You should be able to laugh and be silly with her. Communicating is easy because you can talk to her, and I mean really talk to her. You feel safe and comfortable sharing your emotions with her. You know she’ll be by your side through thick or thin.
5. She thinks you’re a dime piece
You catch her checking you out pretty often. You might be in gym shorts, or in black tie formal, and she always thinks you’re the sexiest man alive.
6. She is willing to put effort into the relationship
When she puts in effort for you and for the relationship, you know she is as invested as you. It doesn’t even have to be grand gestures. Little things are enough to show you that she cares and is willing to go the extra mile for the happiness of you two. This is something both the partners should be very particular about. It also helps keep the flame alive in a relationship.
7. She inspires you to be a better person
Admiring your partner and their attitude should motivate you to be a better version of yourself. From going to the gym to volunteering at a charity, you should want to be the best version of yourself for her—and yourself.
8. She’s your biggest supporter
She’s always singing your praise. Whatever life has in store for you two, you know she’ll be your biggest cheerleader. She’s always there for you.
9. The two of you share your most core beliefs and values
The importance of this point cannot be stretched enough. When you set out to make a life with someone, it is important that the two of you agree on some of the non-negotiable values each of you hold. This doesn’t mean that you are not allowed to have differences. It is just that some things are too important for individuals that if they are attacked, they cannot live happily with each other.
