If you’ve been in a relationship with a man for a while now, it’s normal to look out for signs he wants to marry you. Obviously, everything feels almost perfect between you and you’re at the stage in your relationship where getting married wouldn’t be completely unexpected.

So, how do you know he wants to spend the rest of his life with you? There are certain signs to look out for especially if he’s financially secure and he is at a stable place in his career. Here are 9 obvious signs he wants to marry you…


#1. He talks about the future with you

When a man thinks about the future and sees you in it, that’s a huge sign he wants to marry you. If he openly talks about the future with you, it’s obvious he wants to spend the rest of his life with you.

Pay attention when these conversations come up and avoid pushing them aside or changing the subject. If you do, he may think that you’re not really interested in tying the knot.

#2. You’re a part of his family

If it’s gotten to the point where you and your man come as a pair then it’s fair to say that you’re part of the family. This means that you attend every special occasion together, know his siblings by name and have perhaps even met those awkward distant relatives of his.

When your man makes you a part of his family, it’s a pretty big deal, I mean he’s not going to just want any woman to be there. Sure, you may have met his parents a month or two after dating…

But if they’re buying you Christmas presents or you’re going to them for advice then that’s a sure sign he’s comfortable having you around which could mean he considers you wife material.

#3. He wants to live together

A big stepping stone of marriage is living together. Of course, this depends on the couple and their individual morals and beliefs but if your man proposes that you move in together then it could be his way to test-drive what life with you as his wife would be like.

Now, if you’ve been living together for more than 3 years and he’s financially secure, then this may not be so much of a sign that he wants to marry you. But, you can rest assured that him agreeing to live with you in the first place means he considers your relationship to be pretty serious.

#4. He misses you

Whether he’s texting you when you’re not around or surprising you with small gifts after a weekend away when your guy shows you that he misses you it’s a sign that marriage may be on his mind. Let me explain…

When a man misses you it gives him a taste of what life without you would be like. When that happens, he quickly realizes how much of a big role you play in his life which gets him thinking about how he can keep you around for good. That’s where the idea of marriage comes into play.

#5. He sees only you

The feeling you get when you see your man check out another lady is pretty crappy. Not only does it remind you that you could very well lose your guy any minute but it also sparks feelings of insecurity and jealousy.

When a man wants to marry you, he’ll only have eyes for you. That means you won’t catch him glancing at the waitress as she passes by or having to worry about him flirting with co-workers. Why? Because you’re the only woman he’s interested in.

#6. He is making necessary plans

This sign may not be as obvious as the others but if you look hard enough and you listen attentively, you may notice it as one of the signs he wants to marry you. If he’s planning on making you his wife, he’ll start making necessary plans like renting a bigger apartment, redecorating the bedroom to your taste, furnishing the kitchen or getting an engagement ring.

If he’s making any major changes around the house, he’s obviously making it more comfortable for you and he’s planning on keeping you with me for the long haul. If he doesn’t want you to stay, he won’t bother making any changes that appeal to you.

#7. He is actively involved in your life

A man who wants to settle down with you will actively get involved in your life. Your business will become his business and your problems will also become his problems. He’ll want to know what you’re doing, how you’re doing it and how he can help you do it better.

He also asks genuine questions that show he’s very interested in your welfare and your future. If he’s not planning to marry you, he’ll only mind his business and won’t even care about what you’re currently working on.

#8. He already acts like your husband

You come home after a long day of work and dinner is made for you. You mentioned the refrigerator needs cleaning and he’s quick to jump on board. You run out of groceries and he offers to help pick them up on his way from work.

If your boyfriend is acting like your husband then it’s crystal clear that he has plans to marry you. And a big sign to look for here is if he’s comfortable enough to be himself around you but also caring enough to step up and be the man you need him to be.

#9. He has mentioned it once or twice

Whether he sincerely says he’s going to marry you someday or jokingly pops the question, the reason why your man is talking out loud about marriage is that he’s trying to read your reaction.

Since men fear rejection, it’s important for him to know that you’ll say yes when he does ask you. If he sees that you react sourly to his pre-proposal then he’ll know that things need to be worked on.


I’ve given you 9 obvious signs he wants to marry you that you need to look out for. Of course, it’s important not to jump to any conclusions, overanalyze or put pressure on him because when the timing is right it’ll happen. Let him make up his mind!
