Find out before you say "I do!"
Sometimes, when we’re starting a new relationship, we skip ahead and try to imagine what the relationship would be like if it was more long-term and committed.
We wonder what kind of partner or husband our guy would be. Ultimately, we wonder if they have the characteristics and compatibility factors that we’d need in someone that we’d ostensibly be spending our lives with.
It’s hard to know what someone will be like years or even decades down the road.
People change and grow and the best that we can do is hope that the qualities we feel in love will remain and even grow deeper.
Although it’s helpful to know what you want in a partner, you can’t become too tied to your list as it will blind you to options and qualities you might not have known that you needed.
It’s also good to know what are your absolute deal-breakers, characteristics, and behaviors that you just can’t tolerate.
Perhaps this guy would be better as a friend with benefits rather than someone who you’re tied to forever.
You also should take into consideration how well you’re matched with your partner and the ways in which you might change in the future.
Will you still be emotionally and sexually compatible?
You may not be someone who puts too much faith into astrology, but it’s still fun to see how close the stars are to what people are like.
And it’s surprising how correct they often are.
Of course, you’d never want to end a relationship based entirely on an astrology piece.
These articles are meant to give you some insight into yourself and other people.
Anything that inspires getting to know ourselves is a good thing, especially if you were considering marrying someone.
Here's what he'll be like as a husband, based on his zodiac sign.
Aries makes for an active and spontaneous husband. If you marry him, don't expect to stay home all the time; he's going to want you to join him playing sports, going on adventures, and anything that satisfies his competitive spirit.
He may speak without thinking and he does have a bit of a temper but luckily, his anger doesn't last for too long.
While his attention span isn't extremely long, his love for you will be everlasting.
He'd make a high-status kind of husband. Taurus are very interested in material things and if you were married to one, they'd make sure that your house was fully equipped with the very best appliances, furnishings, and art.
People would definitely be impressed by your house and it might even be featured in a home decor magazine.
He'd be very sensual and considerate, but on the flip side, he'd never give in once he'd made up his mind.
You'd have your work cut out for you if you ever challenged him on a decision he made.
He'd make a captivating husband. Geminis are never boring and are great conversationalists.
You'd constantly be on your toes trying to keep up with the new theories, ideas projects, and his many moods.
As far as commitment goes, the real difficulty would be in getting them to commit in the first place; once that was done, he'd be faithful as long as he didn't get bored.
His energy would be all over the place from being kind of introverted one minute to a party hound the next, and that would take a certain amount of patience on your part.
He'd make sure that all your needs were taken care of and that you were happy.
When you need someone to vent to, he'd be there and when you were sick, he'd bring you soup, ginger ale and whatever you needed.
Your home would truly become your safe space and your relationship would be his number one priority.
He'd make a very protective husband. A Leo man is known for taking very good care of those he loves and for being their advocate.
He'd always have your back and would support you unconditionally. Lions may not mate for life, but Leos tend to, so you'll be able to trust that he'll be faithful.
The best thing of all is how he'll encourage you to blossom and come into your own.
He'll want you to live your best and most fierce life.
He'd make a very thoughtful husband and would make sure that everything, including your relationship, was functioning properly.
Virgos are known for their ability to fix things and that's not just computers and cars — they're known for being healers, scientists, activists, and health care professionals.
They tend to throw themselves into things whole-heartedly and are often working on a big research project, a trip, or a political protest, and while they may be busy, they'll always make time to focus on their loved ones.
A Libra man would make an extremely romantic husband and that romance would not dissipate as the years went on.
He wouldn't just remember important occasions like birthdays and holidays; he'd be one to surprise his spouse with flowers or a gift because it was Tuesday or because he knew they were having a tough time at work.
He'd be the ultimate host for parties and get-togethers.
Libras do have a lazy streak but that's counterbalanced by their drive and ambition, so while he may want to spend all day Saturday in bed, he'll be back in work mode on Monday.
Saying that a Scorpio man would make a loyal husband is somewhat of an understatement for they are loyal to the extreme.
Once committed, Scorpio will be there for you no matter what. They love fiercely, possessively, and sometimes obsessively.
Yeah, it takes a lot to shake a Scorpio once they're hooked. They're passionate AF and usually demonstrate their love in physical and sexual ways as they do tend to keep their emotions closely guarded.
They may not constantly say they love you but if someone does you wrong, you can bet that Scorpio will take action and make things right.
A Sagittarius man would make a stimulating husband because he'd always be moving. Sagittarius don't settle down — they've got too much energy for that.
They like to be traveling, meeting new people, and having new adventures.
They don't like things to get predictable and stagnant, so they're always spicing things up ... and that includes in the bedroom.
While they enjoy having philosophical discussions, they also like laughing their ass off and having fun. It may not be easy to get them to commit but once they do, they'll make life an unforgettable experience.
He won't be boring because he has a very frisky sexual side to him, so he's kind of the best of both worlds.
He'd be an excellent husband and father to your children. He'd make sure that you had a secure financial foundation and would work hard to achieve it.
He might get a little stuck in his ways, which is why he'd need a partner who could encourage him to relax and chill on occasion. Capricorns are the definition of marriage material.
An Aquarius man will make a very unorthodox husband. It's not that Aquarians can't do traditional, it's that they see the world in their own unique way.
Marriage to him will be interesting, exhilarating, constantly changing, rule-breaking relationship.
He'll make you feel 100 percent loved and he'll appreciate every part of you. He's very independent and he'll encourage his wife to be as well.
If you marry an Aquarius, prepare to become the best version of yourself.
He'll make a hopelessly devoted husband. When a Pisces falls in love, they do so with their whole body, mind, and heart.
They practically hand their hearts to their beloved. He'll adore you and you'll inspire him to his most creative, whether it's art or creative thinking/problem-solving.
While they may try to fight it (they've been hurt before) they will be wonderfully vulnerable with you and you will feel the responsibility of having that kind of power.
They may forget to take out the trash or do the dishes but they'll never forget to make you feel loved.
