No matter how confident we are in our decision-making prowess, we still seek help from various avenues. You might have a friend that you trust or a therapist, or like many of us, you get various behavioral clues from astrology. Marriage is not something that someone goes into lightly, nor is making a long-term commitment, so when we’re deciding whether or not we should make such a momentous decision, we need to look at all the costs and benefits. We may we completely head over heels in love, but we’ve got to try to see things in a logical and practical way.
Before you say “I do,” it’s good to know exactly what you’re getting yourself into! So will the stars align for you and your hubby-to-be? For better or worse, here are the pros and cons of marrying each zodiac sign, according to love astrologers.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Pros: Lucky for you, with an Aries, there will never be a dull moment, as they’re fun-loving, wild, and exciting to be around. They’re fun-loving, a little wild, and charismatic. A life with an Aries will challenge and delight you. The chemistry between the two of you will be more than physical, but emotional too, and will probably last a lifetime.
Cons: On the contrary, they tend to be set in their own ways and can also be a bit selfish and bossy too, points out astrologer Joan Porte.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Pros: He’s loyal, hardworking, and will be home every night at the same time. “He’s a solid upstanding guy that people can count on.” Oh, and don’t be surprised if he enjoys life’s little luxuries as well.
Cons: He’ll expect you to be just as devoted and reliable so free spirits need not apply. Everybody knows how stubborn and unmovable a Taurus can be. They’re relentless when they’re trying to prove a point, and compromise isn’t a concept they understand very well.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Pros: This guy was born with the gift of gab, which can be both a good thing and a bad thing, according to Porte. “He’s a great conversationalist, interesting, and smart.
Cons: However, he’s always talking and may have a tough time listening to you in return.” He might have a tough time listening since he is always talking. He might also not be the most committed of men since he likes variety.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Pros: Everyone loves a big teddy bear and this guy is quite the nurturer! He’s cuddly, loves his mother (well, in most cases…some of them hate their moms) and he understands your feelings too.
Cons: Apart from the possibility of being moodier than you can be when you’re PMS-ing, he has high expectations. He might also want you to be the same as his mother.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Pros: Leos are very generous, loving, and faithful. Like the lion, Leos mate for life. When you’re in a relationship with a Leo, you feel very lucky, as if the sun is smiling down upon you, as he’s simply spectacular and a real catch.
Cons: If your Leo man isn’t the center of attention 24/7 he’ll get very upset. He doesn’t mind competing for things as long as he ultimately wins. Leo’s worst quality, however, is his vanity and how completely into himself he can get.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Pros: A Virgo is definitely your man if you are into organized guys, particularly when it comes to finances. Apart from having it together and being dedicated, he also has his feet on the ground.
Cons: Virgos are very critical with themselves and with others. He has a tendency to be a bit obsessive and compulsive about having things in their place and organized, and Lord help you if you don’t put something back exactly where it was.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Pros: Libra men love people and are very social creatures. They’re fair and the last thing they’d do is pick a fight for no good reason. If a Libra gets into it with someone it’s usually because there’s been some kind of heinous injustice. The chances are good that you’d have a peaceful and happy life together.
Cons: On the flip side, Libras often can’t make up their mind and are notorious players! “Be ready to fight off other women even if he’s not an out and out cheater; he charms everyone.”
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Pros: Scorpios are loyal, deeply passionate, straightforward, and determined too. They’re also amazing in bed, but you probably knew this already!
Cons: They always seem to have a hidden agenda and can keep secrets almost too well. Their words can cut like a knife. They’re very mysterious which can be obnoxious when you just want a simple answer. They can get jealous, possessive, and if they catch you in a lie, they’ll hold it against you and never forgive you.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Pros: They’re always up for adventure and are world travelers by nature. Sagittarius also has a lot going on upstairs and are intelligent dudes.
Cons: Unfortunately, sometimes you just can’t win with them, as they hate to lose arguments. “They can be know-it-alls and kind of tactless too.”
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Pros: Capricorn men make ideal husbands as their strongest qualities are hardworking, dependable, and financially responsible. That’s what you want in a spouse.
Cons: While being such good workers is a positive thing, they have a tendency to work too much. He can also be both stubborn and emotionally detached.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Pros: He’s young at heart, always up for a good time (both in the bedroom and out of it), very innovative, and always seeks out the special aspects of life.
Cons: He’s not all that dependable and can be somewhat rebellious. “He likes to shake things up just for the fun of it.”
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Pros: Pisces are sweet, excellent listeners, romantic, and passionate. They give their hearts and souls, says Wright. Pisces know how to break the tension of a serious situation with a laugh. They’re very original thinkers so you’d never be bored, and they’ll always be there to listen to your problems and offer you support.
Cons: You never know what you’re going to get because they can go from hot to cold instantaneously. They can become so tight-lipped that it’s impossible to find out when something is bothering them. And they spend so much time in their head, you might wonder if they’ve purchased real estate there.
While finding a match is not that hard, finding a suitable and fitting one is a different matter. Fortunately, the stars might be of significant assistance. Following these zodiac features you know whether or not he is the man for you is, therefore, a good idea.
