10 Ways to Know Your Boyfriend is Husband Material

Posted in: , , ,

1. They don’t make fun of your taste in music/pop culture/entertainment. (Well, a little teasing is fine, but they shouldn’t be seriously judging you over it.)

2. They encourage and support you in pursuing your dreams in life.

3. You feel welcome and comfortable around their family — even if no future in-laws are perfect.

4. There aren’t any secrets between the two of you, or things about yourselves which you feel you need to seriously hide from one another.

5. They are proud of you.

6. There is no pressure for either of you to adhere to strict, completely outdated gender roles — or a feeling that, if you don’t, the other isn’t attracted to you anymore.

7. Your friends enjoy being around them, and generally think that they are a cool person who is good for you.

8. They make you laugh, laugh so hard you can’t breathe, laugh so much that you don’t care if you’re doing your “ugly, weird, cackly/snorty laugh.” (And they love your laugh.)

9. You are capable of having thoughtful, intelligent discussions about subjects that — even if you don’t necessarily agree on the topic at hand — teach both of you something and remain respectful.

10. You feel fully comfortable around them naked, in bright afternoon light.

Most importantly, you reciprocate all of these things for them, and are excited at the prospect of being a better, smarter, more caring person because of the healthy way in which you love one another.

#5 and #6 Give me Life :)


  1. Very true observation! But I agree completely with numbers 2, 5 and 8! Single and hoping? then learn.

  2. Awwww....well that means I have a good man. I love No 8.

  3. Number 10 seems impossible but it is very true. However, number three might be a bit dicey for a shy lady. And there are some in laws to be who are just too unbearable, but it can't mean that the guy is not husband material. Can it?

  4. 2,5,6&9 is my lucky no

  5. I think no 10 is very important so that there won't be any future problems...

  6. I agree with all the points made, apart from number 10. I think what's key is mutual attraction, and also an emotional, intellectual and spiritual connection.

  7. This is so true, so so true. I feel I can relate on every single point when analysing my current relationship.

    I feel blessed every single day.

  8. Until recently, I couldn't quite relate with these points. But they are so true.

  9. Hmmm, talking of no 10: ppl like me cannot get themselves to do it. Some ppl are just too shy to go naked before anybody. It's more determined by ones social and family background.

  10. All but 7 n 10. Friends at times can be too caring to think they know all about us and what is good for us.No judgement but where is the whole surprise if we start to get comfortably naked before marriage?

  11. that number 6 is a winner for me, i swear.Then 2, 5 and 9/

  12. i'm so nt comfy wif no 10,i dnt tink my bf shld c my nudity,he aint my fiance whom is nt evn fit 2 c it,jes my husband,in future of cos
