How do you know he is the one for you?

15 September 2015, 15:08 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - At times I think that women can have their priorities mixed up. Some not all of you; when it comes to men, relationships and ultimately marriage.

Having a ring, a husband and nailing getting married is a jackpot for a lot of women but when you look back at the person you are married to or the one that you want to get married to, how do you feel? Right now before you jump that hoop are you happy right now? Do you like the relationship itself or are you also struggling while you are in it because marriage never changes things. It can improve a person from point A to point B but cannot make a D an A.

Why him and not the others.  Okay, maybe you do not have that many options but maybe it is because you put yourself in that position. Always allow yourself to have options; that way, you can never make desperate decisions when it comes to getting into a relationship with someone and making them your lifelong partner. Have someone prove themselves worthy of that spot rather than them coming in with an attitude because they know you have no one else to run to.

You do not ask yourself if they are good enough to raise your children with; would they be a good father or not? Are they a good partner to you right now? Do they support you and your decisions, are they all for self-improvement? Or do you just want a wedding because that is just one day. There is an after-life after you get married to someone because it is no longer me but we. You can run the gambit for a couple of months and enjoy doing the same things you did while you were living apart, doing things independently but after the first child and they still want to be ‘independent’ then you realize you are in trouble.

What makes them husband material for you because you cannot make a husband out of someone who does not have those qualities. You cannot make a D an A. Men choose their wives because they have wife-material in them so why don’t you try do the same with the man that you want to spend the rest of your life with. It is nice when the sex is good but that is just a few hours out of your day what about the rest of the day. It is nice when they can take you out for dinner once a month but what about the other times that you need someone, is he there?
