10 Signs He's Ready to Pop the Question

5. You think about the wedding

It's all becoming an exciting prospect to you, this idea of marriage. The fact that it doesn't scare you is remarkable. But more amazingly, you realize that you can spin a ton of positives out of it. The wedding party will be a blast. Friends you haven't seen in a while will all be celebrating, drinking and dancing with you again at your reception. Plus, this time you get to be the recipient of a bachelor party and not merely a participant.

4. You start sacrificing financially

Another clue that you're really ready to pop the question is when you've begun calculating the fees necessary to take a wife. You realize that you'll need to give up some luxuries in order to finance this event. A true man steps up and shows his woman that he's ready and able to field the cost. If, for example, you sell the aforementioned bobble head collection to a dealer to get some cash or trade in your Audi TT for a fuel-efficient Ford Escape to save for the wedding (and you can smile while doing so), then you're ready. If you've recognized this need and, more importantly, are eager to make it happen, then you're in line to get hitched.

3. You want her as the mother of your children

This one's big. It may not have been that long ago, when the mere thought of being a "daddy" sent you running for the nearest bottle of tequila. However, if being with your latest lady has you actually thinking of children's names and even grinning at the thought that she might be the mother to your brood, then you've certainly got nuptials on the brain. Just remember: Before you actually start trying to have those bambinos, make sure she's on the same page.
