Marriage is one of the most important decisions you will take in your life. It requires a serious commitment that’s made between two right people for the right reasons.
If you’re reading this article, I’m assuming that you are looking to spend your life (not a few days or months) with a special woman.
Of course, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with flings and casual relationships. But, if you’re looking for something long-term, such as moving in or marriage, you need to keep your eyes and ears open for signs she will be a bad wife.
It’s easy to be blindsided when you’re in the initial stage of your relationship. Most people are guilty of seeing their partner through rose-tinted glasses and regret their decision a few years down the road.
You may have heard of jokes that a man transforms after becoming a husband or a woman changes once she’s married — they’re pure garbage.
Sure, people change but not completely transform into someone else. Therefore, it becomes crucial to identify the bad wife signs early in the relationship to help you save time and money.
8 Warning signs she will be a bad wife
If you are looking for bad wife traits or bad wife signs, you might start by reading these warnings as they may come in handy.
You promise your partner to share your life with them and be with them during the good and the bad times. It’s a pretty big deal.
Before you decide to take a plunge, evaluate your future wife’s attitude towards commitment.
Does your wife constantly bounce from one job to another?
Does her BFF keep changing every few weeks or months?
It’s a sure-shot sign that she’s not interested in making long-term commitments.
There’s nothing wrong if you’re at that stage in your life where you’re trying different things to figure out who you are, but that’s not the kind of stage you want your potential spouse to be in when you tie the knot.
According to a statewide survey conducted in Oklahoma, it was found that one of the biggest reasons for divorce is commitment (85%), followed by arguing (61%).
I mean, how can you plan a life with someone when they can’t even plan what they’ll be doing next week?
There is nothing wrong with a person who loves to party, but some people are mad party enthusiasts.
Most girls who love to party hit the club three days a week, drink and party like there’s no tomorrow but they know that their party schedule might change after marriage.
However, some women aren’t ready for that change and unfortunately, they don’t realize that in time.
So if you are a person who likes his drinks quiet and loves the idea of long walks and soothing backdrop for dates, and she keeps juggling clubs every night, you might want to give it a long thought before saying I do.
Most guys want to spend a decent amount of time with their wives regularly. Sure, you and her can go out and enjoy with your respective set of friends from time to time.
But if she prefers dancing the night away with strangers than spending some time with you, it’s a sign that she’s not ready to be in anyone’s life.
If she still enjoys the parties like a college student, that’s completely fine, but you don’t want to be that husband who has to beg his wife to stay home to spend some time with you.
5. She has major trust issues
There’s no way around this one — this is one of the most important elements of a lasting, healthy relationship is trust.
If you don’t trust each other, your entire relationship would feel like walking on eggshells.
Does she not trust you when she’s your girlfriend, that she checks upon you, who you’re hanging out with, and accuses you of lying to her?
Well, that’s not going to change after you’re married.
A survey from OnePoll found that 10% of married women don’t trust their husbands, and 9% of these women spy on their social media accounts and emails.
A ring on her finger isn’t going to magically make her trust you even when you’ve been the most loyal and committed guy on the planet.
