"How to Determine if Your Guy is Marriage Material"
Women are often the first ones in a relationship to consider settling down with a husband and kids.

Do you fight a lot over little things? Part of a good relationships means determining if you two are emotionally stable/volatile. If you have an emotionally stable relationship and can discuss your problems like normal adults, chances are he is mature enough to consider marrying and starting a family with you.
Although it is important for you to be compatible with your guy, there are other aspects of the relationship that are important. For example, does he want kids? Is he financially responsible? Is he willing to make sacrifices for you? If you can answer yes to these questions, marriage may definitely be an acceptable topic of conversation.
Make sure that you do not sound pushy about the idea of marriage. Bring it up in conversation to get a feel for what he thinks about marriage and starting a family. It will be easier for you to determine if he is marriage material based on the things he says during the conversation.
If he is too attached to the bachelor lifestyle, chances are he is not ready for the commitment of marriage. If he prefers hanging with his guy friends over spending time with you, you may want to reconsider thoughts of marriage. You can choose to either give him enough time to mature or cut your ties with one another or move onto someone who is more suitable marriage material. It all depends on how long you are willing to wait and how soon you want to get married and start a family.
Watch to see if he treats his mom well. If he treats his mother well he is likely a family oriented person. This can be a good sign if you want to start a family. You also need to determine if you can trust what he says. Trust is a major aspect of a healthy relationship. Without trust, you do not have a strong foundation for something as serious as marriage. If he is willing to share his personal life with you and takes a genuine interest in your personal life, chances are he really does care about you.
