Look out for these 13 signs to be at ease that he wants to marry you someday.
1. He includes you in the plans he makes.
A man who sees a future with you will start making his plans with you in it.
If for instance, he gets a job in a new city or town, he’s already thinking about how it will affect your relationship and asking questions about how you can make it work. He may even seek your opinion before applying for the job or taking it up.
If your boyfriend always includes you in every major (or even minor) plan that he makes about his life, then you can be certain that he is thinking more long-term about you, particularly marriage.
2. He confides in you about everything including his deepest fears.
Guys generally do not open up easily or to just about anyone. You have to be pretty special for him to even confide in you or tell you his deepest fears and secrets. And a guy will only open up to a lady in that way if he sees her in his future. If he confides in you with relative ease, you can give yourself a thumbs up because it is a sign that he may marry you.
3. He has taken you home to meet his parents.
This one is another major sign that he will most likely ask you to marry him in the future. The only lady a man takes home to meet his parents is the lady he thinks or believes he will marry. And the reason for this is obvious – taking a girl home to your parents signifies to them that you are seriously considering settling down with her. And it will not be long before they start asking questions about when the wedding date is. This is why guys do not take just about any girl home to meet their parents. You have to be the one they think they see a future with before they take that bold step.
4. You’re his plus one at every important (and even seemingly unimportant) event he attends.
He is so proud to have you by his side and wants to show you off to everyone that matters to him. A guy will show you off in this way if he sees a future with you.
