In as much as it is not the duty of a woman to seek for or find a man, but to be found by one, it is her obligation to screen through her list of men so as not to tie the knot with the wrong guy.
Not every man is marriageable, just like they say with women, but the issue is that most women have met worse men than the ones on this list but believes he would change with time.
The hard truth is – no woman is capable of single-handedly changing any man without his approval.
Rather than wish for the impossible, why not go for the possible – the man with a lighter baggage that you can cope with because it is better to remain single than marry any of the men on this list.
Here are 7 men you should never consider marriage with:
1. A man who still adores his ex
This man professes love to you 24/7 but he still creates time for his EX in the disguise of ‘just friends’. He hasn’t really gotten over her and he keeps comparing you with her at the slightest chance he gets. He can never truly love you like he claims because he still has remnants of her in his system and this will continue even after he marries you.
2. A perfectionist
This is not just about him being meticulous about everything like his clothes, food, house, and properties. It extends to how he feels about you. A perfectionist would always try to make you perfect, and if it is not working, he would wonder if you are the perfect woman for him or if there is someone out there who perfectly fits into his dream woman.
3. A relationship novice
Marrying a guy who has never dated anyone before you is a whole lot of work as compared to the one who had several girlfriends before settling down. He would know practically nothing about handling a woman or dealing with a relationship. So get ready to sail the ship if you must marry him. On the other hand, you must question the fact that he has been single all the while, it could be a trap or he might be hiding something from you.
4. An abusive man
Most ladies know better on this one, but a number of them still walk down the altar with an abusive man. Whether physical or emotional, you do not have to put up with an abusive man, you deserve better. Once you notice that trait in him while dating, look for the nearest exit and start plotting your escape map.
5. A mummy’s boy
Having a man who cares for his mum is adorable, but when he begins to worship her, his wife-to-be is in for a long thing. This kind of man can not do a thing without consulting his beloved mother. She practically tells him to jump and all he does is ask ‘high how?’ So you better get used to hearing, “My mom doesn’t do it that way,” as well as get used to his mother being your marriage counselor, too.
6. A narcissist
A person who is a narcissist is so convinced of their own greatness that they don’t see their weaknesses. Marrying a narcissist is a very one-sided relationship. They’re always trying to flaunt their own greatness often at the expense of others. The marriage will usually be all about him and with time you will become invisible.
7. A control freak
Everybody likes to have things their own way. Unfortunately, because men are socialized to express hostility and anger when they don’t get what they want, a man who is a control freak can often become intimidating and even abusive – physically or mentally. Run for your dear life, you don’t need to be controlled by a freak.
The more you understand yourself, the more silence there is, the healthier you are. —Maxime Lagacé
