It is often thought that men are afraid of marriage – they are already at least at a certain stage of their lives. Marriage, for them, is a big word. It is equality with the freedom that has been reduced and the age of slavery. These are ways on how to talk about marriage with your boyfriend.
Be brave and ask him
The only way you can hear a direct answer is to ask a simple and straight question. Ask him about his idea of marriage. Most men will not lie and will not hesitate to discuss what their true feelings are. Just know when and how to talk about the word m.
Talk less and listen more to what he says
Once you make him sit with you, do not start the dialogue by spoiling him for marriage to you. No man complies with such a negative approach. Instead, try to listen to his views and opinions about marriage – then you will only know whether he will marry you or that he is waiting for the right time to propose.
Communicate with your friend
Well, so you want to talk about marriage? Then you should learn to communicate effectively. Do not place a wall at all – always make sure that he can talk to you at any time, and you will not judge him if he has a different belief about the marriage.
Adjust the mood
The only way you can get a man to talk about being committed or getting married is when he is more relaxed. So why not ask him about transient marriage when he is comfortable in your living room, eating potato chips and watching a basketball game on TV?
Attend a wedding together
It can be a colleague’s wedding or your friend’s dearest – it does not really matter. What matters is to make him realize that there is more bliss than slavery in such celebrations. Let him see the faces of the bridegroom and the bride happy.
If you do not have the courage to ask him directly, why not gather relevant information instead? Ask him what he intends to do five years from now, or what his career plans are. If his statements are full of “us” rather than “me,” you can make sure he is thinking about the future with you.
