Men’s Fitness – Is My Girlfriend Wife Material?
Should I marry her? Should I marry him? These are familiar and common questions we all face in determining whether we should make a commitment to our partner, and it isn’t hard to wonder if we are making the right choice.
Sarah Jacobsson Purewal for Men’s Fitness interviewed me to provide readers a few key signs to look for when asking yourself, “is my girlfriend wife material,” and I was very pleased to help.
We asked Washington D.C.-based psychologist Alicia H. Clark to weigh in on what, exactly, makes a woman “wife material.” Here are the signs you should be looking for before you pop the question (or, signs you need to pop the question ASAP).
What’s the #1 sign she’s wife material?
The biggest sign she’s “the one” is if you feel more comfortable—not less comfortable—as the relationship progresses. This means that the more you get to know her, the more you feel like you can relax and be yourself around her. Everybody is on their best behavior at the beginning of a relationship, but things should get better, not worse, as both of you let your guards down.
