I have a question.... just curious...

In your opinion, are their any different qualities, traits, characteristics etc. that divide a wife from a girlfriend?

If so, please describe....


** Some women get asked to get married multiple times... and some women NEVER. What makes a woman "WIFE MATERIAL"?

I agree and been both to gf is way easier thst paper changes things most of the time but u said my option


Quoting kidlover2:

I've been both and I am happier and more committed than a "girlfriend" then as a wife. Commitment is a heart issue, never a legal issue. I will eventually get married for my girls financial security, not because it changes how I feel or how we treat one another.

I have been with my boyfriend for 14 years this year. Since I was 16. We won't get married. He is scared to get married, He says it will ruin our relationship. I just dont want to at this point in time. Even though we have been throu all that high school drama, We will eventually get married when our kids are adults. We do call eachother husband and wife.

I asked my husband this question
This is his response. He says as a wife. I take care of him and I love him for who I am. I don't try yo change him. I go to the ends of the earth for him. I am responsible enough to take care of our kids and raise them the way he wants them raised. I am responsible enough to be trusted with money and any big decisions.
He said as a wife he should be able to rely on that person to take care of things. Even if something happened to him he knows I would still operate our family the right way.

With a girlfriend. Shes there for company. She's fun and enjoys time with them but would never trust them enough yo be his life long partner.
He says when it comes to hardships in life a wife will stay with you and work with out through it. A gf wouldn't be reliable enough..


He's never had a gf he wanted to make his wife. They've never shown him that they were that type of material for him

I think it has less to do with the girl and her "qualifications" and more with the type of man she attrats or is attracted to.

Read a book recently that explained this from a man's perspective. Really opened my eyes. Steve Harvey's Think Like A Man. They turned it into a movie, but the book was good.

Of course I was. I have had 3 boyfriends in my life time. I wouldn't marry the other two so I left. My husband and I have been best friends for 13 years. Before we met. He was husband material so I said yes when he asked me 6 months into our relationship.

If your willing to have a life long commitment than there is no reason to NOT be married.
