4 Signs That a Man's Ready for Marriage -- and 4 That He's Not

How to tell if he's ready to take the next step

He's Not Marriage Material If He:

Says he has no interest in tying the knot.
Instead of trying to change his mind, believe him and move on.

Buys a Porsche.
Or other high-end items that no man saving up for a ring or a future would purchase. Carol Morgan says, "If he acts financially immature and irresponsible, he's thinking 'me,' not 'we.'"

Calls his married friends "losers."
If he wants to couple up, he considers a man and a woman building a future together beautiful, not pathetic.

Continually makes you cry.
And they're not tears of happiness. If he's unreliable, abusive, a liar, cheat and/or uber-flirt, divorce yourself from this relationship before it takes a trip to court to do so.
