This can be a tough thing to figure out for some people but there are ways that it can be done, or at least get a better idea whether or not they are.

Do they bring up the topic of marriage?

If marriage is on their mind, they will naturally be thinking about that topic and will be more likely to bring it up in conversation. The reason may be that they are trying to get you thinking about it or it may be that they are thinking about it themselves. Regardless of the reason, if they bring marriage up in conversation, it usually means they are thinking about it.

Does your significant other talk about a possible future with you?

It’s one thing to ask what your future plans are on a first date however the depth of that question usually ends there. If your significant other attempts to talk about a possible future together, or how you see your own future with some kind of depth or detail, that is another solid sign that they thinking about a marriage with you.

If you are not the keenest person in the world, you can listen for key phrases like “if we live together” or “if we get married”. Also, if they ask about your feelings on children or express their own feelings on children, that is another clear clue that they have you in their long term plans.

Do they bring up the benefits of marriage?

This can sometimes be a little easier to overlook as it may seem like a more logical line of questioning rather than an emotional one. If you significant other mentions the benefits of marriage, that may be an attempt to passively convince you into marriage through logic and reason.

Even though it may seem like a strictly informative conversation, there is usually more behind a spontaneous explanation of how you can save on your tax returns as a spouse than it may seem.

How long have you been a couple?

Of the three signs we mentioned above, this is the most vague. There are a lot of factors involved here, such as the types of people the two of you are, your attitude towards marriage, your financial status, your age and if there have been any road bumps in your relationship early on.

If all checks out well, an engagement is usually expected in a 4-5 year relationship for young couples. It is most common to wait until after both of you are finished with college or have secured long term jobs. For older couples, a shorter, 2-3 year relationship may be all the time needed.

If you are unsure whether or not your significant other has marriage on their mind, you can look out for the clues that we have outlined above and consider the strength and status of the relationship. If you are still unsure, it may be a good idea to ask them directly or apply these methods yourself and gauge their reaction.
