At one point or another, every little girl dreams of her prince charming. Some girls even write out lists of everything they want him to be — in her eyes, he's absolutely perfect.
I don't mean to crush your little girl dreams, but nobody's perfect. No, not even your future or current hubby. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't ever fall in love! Love is messy and imperfect, but you make it work and enjoy the ride.
Marriage is a huge decision, but don't let his imperfections get in the way of a happy life together. Despite the flaws and shortcomings, are 10 signs you should marry him:
He makes you swoon like you never have before. You're laughing and smiling more than you ever have, and your mood can switch from angry to delighted in a second when your phone lights up with his name or he walks in a room.
You never have enough time with your sweetheart. Even if you see each other every single day, it's still hard to say your goodbyes every night. Every second you spend together is precious, and you make the best of it (even if you're just watching Netflix).
You know a man loves you when he'll do anything to make you happy. If he sacrifices time with his friends or other things he loves to be with you, you can be sure you're a priority in his life.
When I was dating my husband, the thought of dating anyone else made me sick to my stomach. If you find yourself wanting to branch out and date other people, it might be a sign you're not ready to get married quite yet.
It doesn't matter if you're on a walk around the neighborhood or you're in Disneyland — every day you spend together is the best, because you're together. Of course you'll have fights sometimes and a few bad days, but the good outweigh the bad by far.
Think of your life 40 years from now — you're sitting on the porch with your wrinkly sweetheart talking about your life together. It's so wonderful to know that you'll always have your man right by your side.
Conversations aren't forced and he's just easy to be with. Even when you go to his family parties where you don't know anyone, he stays close to you so you always feel comfortable.
Whenever you're with him, all your worries melt away and you know you're in a safe place. You know he would never do anything to hurt you, and you know he would protect you from anything that could hurt you.
You can never go wrong when you listen to your heart. If you have a bad feeling about marrying him, you probably shouldn't do it. But if you have a good feeling about it and everything seems right, go for it.
The moment I knew I needed to marry my husband was the moment I realized my life would not be the same without him. He lifts me up in so many ways, and I can't imagine not having him in my life every day.
Marriage is a big step; of course you're going to be nervous making such a big decision. But if you're feeling these 10 things, chances are it's going to work out and you'll have a happy marriage. Just do what your heart tells you, and you'll make the right decision.
