Sharing our lives with one woman, having steady sex for life and the possibility of kids crosses our minds. Of course, this could all result from your woman's constant hinting at marriage. Hey, it's like Chris Rock says, "Women get married; men surrender." While you're chewing on that, have a look at the top 10 things that should alert you to the fact that you might want to "make an honest woman" out of your current belle.

10. You want to settle down

Feeling like the pace of single life is too hectic? Do you look at your single friends as if they're all just running around pointlessly from party to party with no greater ambition than finding their next "lay"? More importantly, have you caught yourself contemplating whether there's something more? There is, and your gut tells you the answer lies with your girlfriend.

9. You want to experience life with her

Now that you've been together for a while, you begin to realize that she's someone very special. Whenever you go out of town on business, you frequently wish she could be there with you. Conversely, when she's away, it hits you that you can't wait for her to get back. You want to vacation with her and visit new places together. In other words, you've reached a point where you can't picture her ever leaving your life and you see yourself growing old with her. Face the facts pal, you're headed toward marriage alley and you actually like the idea.
