There are some things you need to consider before saying yes.
There are times when we're so head-over-heels in love that we don't take into account the big picture. Not only don't we consider the negatives of someone or a situation, we completely ignore them.
Unfortunately, life is always going to get messy — people will change, things will get broken, and what you thought was a sure thing will end up being anything but sure.
When we make momentous decisions like marriage, we need to look at the situation and those involved with a critical eye. If you've never gotten along with your boyfriend's family, what makes you think that you'll instantly bond after the vows are spoken? Or, if your partner has a number of bad habits that drive you insane, do you really expect them to change after you're married?
People do change — not because we want them to, but because they grow and the change comes about organically.
When faced with a big decision you've got, to be honest with yourself and not make a decision because you're scared of the alternate outcome. You may dread being single all your life and that's what makes you accept the first proposal that comes along; but then you find yourself in an unsatisfying and unsuccessful marriage. You can thrive as a married person, and you can also have a fabulous life as a single person.
If you're considering marriage with someone, it can be helpful to get as many different perspectives as you can. What do your friends and family think of your potential husband? Can they see you tied to him forever? What do they think are the pluses and the minuses?
Aries men are very fun and seem very confident; however, if they're not encouraged enough by their significant other, they can become unsure of themselves and depressed. They won't tell you why they're in a bad mood, and what started as an innocent miscommunication can turn into a big fight. Yeah, they can be easily angered and hot-headed.
Any partnership involves compromise, and that holds doubly true for marriage. Taurus is the sign of the bull, and they can be extremely bull-headed and stubborn. They just will not give in, so if you're also someone who holds their ground no matter what, there could be major problems that won't be worked out.
Taurus men can also be very jealous and possessive, so if you're a free spirit there could be trouble. If you're OK with stubbornness, what are your thoughts on laziness? Taurus men can be lazy and unmotivated from time to time.
Geminis are great talkers but not always great listeners. It's not that a Gemini man won't listen to you talk, it's that he'll get so excited about whatever he's talking about that you might not be able to get a word in. They can also be know-it-alls and will give you constant advice — whether you want it or not.
When you marry a Cancer man, be prepared to take a ride on the moody-train. Cancers are very emotional which can lead to huge mood swings. It's great that they feel emotions so deeply, but it's not that great when those emotions lead to self-pity and neediness. If you aren't the kind of person who needs to mother everyone, then Cancers constant need for nurturing and care can get annoying.
Leos can get pouty when they're not the center of attention, and become conceited and self-obsessed when they are. Leos can be bossy, interfering and undermining, but they're also charismatic and fun. People gravitate to Leos, and Leos love that... it's just that having one as a husband can be challenging when you always have to take a back seat to their needs.
If you want a husband who will shower you with creative and spontaneous gifts, then don't marry a Virgo. Virgo men aren't great when in an argument as they'll just get defensive and start listing everything that could possibly be wrong about you. Virgos are highly critical, so if you're not wildly confident and full of self-esteem, their constant criticism may become an issue.
Libra men are so charming and flirtatious that they're difficult to resist, and not just to their wives but to other women. Yes, Libra men are notorious cheaters and the problem is they don't even see why it's a problem; there's enough of them to go around. One thing Libras aren't great at is making up their mind, and they can be pretty self-indulgent. Why choose one woman when you can have three?
Scorpios can get intensely jealous and possessive. If you don't like feeling as if you're being watched in every moment, a Scorpio husband may not be for you. They're extremely sexual which is great if you have a large sexual appetite and a willingness to experiment, but problematic if you don't.
The one thing that Scorpios really can't tolerate is being lied to, so if you like telling white lies to make people feel better, think twice before committing to a Scorpio.
Sagittarius can be a lot of fun, but when it comes down to making a serious commitment, they have a tendency to run in the other direction; they absolutely loathed being tied down. They're extremely impulsive (to the point of recklessness) and impatient. When you're least expecting it, they'll say something blunt and insensitive. Tact, thy name is not Sagittarius.
Capricorns are hard working and stable, which makes them great husbands. They're also bossy, controlling, judgmental and petty, which makes them very difficult to live with. Work is more important to them than feelings, and thus they have a tendency to seem a little callous and cold.
Aquarius men embrace the unorthodox, but emotions make them uncomfortable so they appear detached and unemotional. They tend to be contrary for no apparent reason and somewhat rebellious. They like to stir up trouble just because it's fun.
Pisces men like to dream and spend a lot of time in their heads. Because they have escapist tendencies and are a bit over-sensitive, they can be perceived as lazy and without ambition. It's just that it's very difficult for them to deal with the world. They can be secretive and vague, which can lead to a lot of frustration for their partner.
