10 signs your man will never leave you

Posted March 5

There are other ways to say “I love you” without saying those words exactly. If your man does these 10 things, he never wants to let you go:

1. He accepts your faults

He married you for you. He knows he can’t change you and probably doesn’t want to. He fully accepts your faults as part of who you are. And because he loves you so fully, he's hoping you'll do the same and accept his faults, too.

2. He admits his mistakes

He owns up to his mistakes, even when it’s difficult for him. A man who truly loves you will never put the blame on you when the fault is his. However, you shouldn’t make him take the credit all the time. When you’ve slipped up, take your share of the blame.

3. He respects your decisions (and you respect his)

Marriage requires teamwork. He listens to and respects your decisions, and he appreciates when you do the same for him.

4. He discusses problems with you

He makes it a priority to discuss problems together. Stonewalling (avoiding discussing the problem) is more common in men, so when your man is willing to talk about important issues, he is showing that he cares about you and your relationship. If you need some problem-solving techniques, listen to these marriage experts.

5. He expresses his appreciation for you

He shares his appreciation for you often through words and actions. He thanks you for the things you do, whether big or small. Your efforts don’t go unnoticed. Be patient — men aren’t always the most observant, so it might take a few minutes for him to realize that you washed the dishes so he didn't have to.

6. He spends time with you

He will cancel other plans if he hasn’t had some one-on-one time with you lately. You are a priority in his life, and he proves it to you every day.

7. He tells you you’re gorgeous (even in your pajamas)

Your man loves to see you in your nicest dress and a pair of heels, but he also thinks you’re beautiful when you’ve taken off your makeup and slipped into sweats. If you have a man like this, he’s a keeper.

8. He loves your family

To him, your family is his family. He makes an effort to get to know them and loves them dearly (but not as much as he loves you).

9. He is honest

There are no secrets in your relationship. You know the password on his phone and have access to his calendar. You don’t need to snoop, but the fact that he is so open with you brings you peace. He has nothing to hide.

10. He puts you before himself

He’s willing to make sacrifices for your happiness. He’ll sit through a chick-flick and walk with you at the mall not because he wants to, but because he knows you enjoy it. It makes him happy just to see a smile on your face.

If your man does these things, never let him go! Show him how much you appreciate him by doing these things for him, too. Your love will grow stronger when you both show your devotion to one another.
