4 signs to know if a woman is ready for marriage

16 December 2014, 18:58 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Some women rush to want to get married yet it is because they want it and maybe the partner they want does not want to marry them. You may wonder why you are being overlooked, but most of the time a lot of what you do in public says much more about your character before someone even talks to you. How do you know if you are marriage material, or if the woman you are with is marriage material?

Your financial situation is in bad order

If you have a full time job and you get a constant paycheck at the end of every month but still have to get a loan from your friend then you are a long way from being responsible. If you cannot handle your own financial situation then how will you handle that of your household as well as your children’s funds? The thing about being provided for by the man went out of the window with the feminists.  Nothing says responsible like a woman who knows how to manage her own money and still have savings from her meagre earnings.

You are in love with partying and alcohol

There is nothing wrong with wanting to have fun time to time but if it is something that you live for, then you are definitely not ready for marriage. Does not matter if you are 30 and above, that does not signify maturity but just aging. Maturity comes from being able to handle yourself and not having to join your girlfriends every weekend just because. A twenty year old can be more mature than the forty year old.

Getting drunk and not remembering where you are may lead you to lose the baby on one of those days, definitely not marriage material.

Emotional instability and immaturity

Impulsiveness, being impolite ad rude are not good qualities for anyone long term. Throwing tantrums just because you did not get your way is just a sign that marriage will squash your spirits because it involves dealing with a lot of people. And that needs patience, determination and tolerance. People like people that make their life easier rather than harder.

Unappreciative and discourteous

If she does not appreciate the little you do for her now, the bigger you do later will not make much difference because she will not change.  People who are courteous and thankful for even the smallest gestures go out of their way to make their partner feel like they are in a pedestal. What man does not want their woman to put them on a pedestal?
