I’m sure you don’t want to waste your time in a relationship thinking you will get married at some point only to find out after so many years that, that was never his intention. Many women, unfortunately, have fallen into this trap.
That is why I felt the need to write this article that will show the signs that he will never marry you. If you see more than one of these signs in your relationship, it is more than likely that he will never marry you. So while you don’t have to automatically break up, it is time for some honest conversation, so you can get honest answers.
Signs He Will Never Marry You
He Is Not Committed
When a man wants to marry you, he will not be uncommitted to the relationship. You will see his commitment to the relationship in his words and actions.
He will show and tell you he wants to be with you and make his intention to marry you known. But when a man is just using you for props or physical intimacy, it will show in his commitment to you and the relationship.
He Doesn’t Involve You in His Life
A man that wants you will want to be involved in your life. He will want to know his place in your life and where he comes in as regards your future plans.
So imagine being with a man that doesn’t even involve you in his life not to talk of wanting to be involved in your life. A man that wants you will speak of his future with you in view. He will use more of “our” and “we” instead of “I” and “my”.
He Is Not Interested in Emotional Intimacy
If a man wants to marry you, he will want to know you. I mean, think about it. He wants to spend the rest of your life with you, so of course, he wants to know you.
He will ask you questions and encourage you to ask him questions. Basically, he will be interested in being your best friend.
He Tells You
When a man tells you something, believe it. If he ever makes a statement that he is not interested in marriage or he doesn’t see marriage in the next future, that’s an indirect way of telling you he will never marry you.
He Is Inconsistent
Is he here today and somewhere else tomorrow? Is he saying one thing today and something else tomorrow?
Apart from the fact that you don’t want to spend the rest of your life with someone inconsistent, an inconsistent man is already showing you that he doesn’t want to marry you.
He Avoids Conflict
Conflict is like a two-edged sword; it can make or mar a relationship. However, it should not be avoided. Many people avoid conflicts either because they are scared of ruffling feathers or they are not bothered about the health of the relationship.
If it is the latter, you are in a relationship with someone who doesn’t care whether the relationship flourishes or breakdowns. If he, however, encourages, talking your issues out to find a solution, he is in for the long haul.
He Hides the Relationship
There is a difference between keeping things private and hiding the relationship. Keeping things private is that nobody knows the details of what’s going on in the relationship.
But if nobody knows you are in a relationship; that is a big problem you shouldn’t ignore.
Even if his family doesn’t yet know, his closest friends should know he is in a relationship with you. If he is hiding you, there is a reason and you should find out. It is a huge red flag.

He Proposes but Never Sets a Date
Some men are very smart. If they notice you want marriage or if you have asked them about it, they propose to you to keep you quiet. And after proposing, he says nothing further about the wedding.
Instead, he keeps postponing the date of the wedding because he is not ready. You should watch out for that, he is likely not interested in marrying you.
You Know in Your Guts
You just know he is not interested in marrying you. Things might even look good but somehow, your instinct is screaming that you are in the wrong relationship.
You should listen to it, don’t stifle that voice. At the very least, like I always say, investigate why you feel that way.
Like I mentioned earlier, seeing these signs in your relationship does not always automatically translates to a break-up.
It is, however, important you don’t ignore them, especially if you do want to get married. Sit him down without judgement – so he can be honest – and encourage him to be open. Then you can make an informed decision.
