Why Men Who Marry Strong Girls End Up The Happiest

Strong girls aren’t going to sit on their ass, waiting for their prince charming to come galloping to their rescue. Their lives don’t revolve around whether they are single or taken, whether they are coming home to an empty house or an occupied one, which is ironically why they make the perfect life partner.

Strong girls aren’t going to expect you to play the role of protector, provider, caretaker. They can take care of themselves. They are going to put in as much effort as you do. They will bring home their own paychecks. They will do their own share of the housework. The relationship will never feel lopsided, because they are going to be working as hard as you are.

Strong girls are confident in their skin. They are proud of who they are. They aren’t going to pretend to be someone different in order to impress you. They aren’t going to lie about liking your favorite movies or your crappy taste in music.

If you dedicate your life to them, you won’t wake up one day and wonder who the person sleeping next to you is, because they will show you their authentic self from day one. There won’t be any surprises. There won’t be a sudden switch from cool girl to nagging wife, because you already know the real them.

Strong girls aren’t going to run away at the first sign of trouble. If they believe you are worthwhile, they will fight for you. They will fix whatever is broken between you instead of tossing it in the trash. They will never lose their faith in you as long as you keep showing them you are trying.

Guys who marry strong girls end up the happiest, because their strength will rub off on you. They will be the rock you can lean on whenever you are struggling. No matter what you go through — the loss of a loved one or a pet or a job — they will be there to help you stay steady.

Even better, once the mourning period is over, they will motivate you to get back on your feet. They will inspire you to reach your full potential, even when all you feel like doing is giving up.

Strong girls will test your limitations. They aren’t going to stick in a relationship that dulls their shine, so you will always have to be the best boyfriend/fiancé/husband you can be. You can never let yourself slack, because then you will risk losing them. That sounds like a scary thing, but that is actually a good thing. That means you will always put effort into your relationship. That means you will never take their love for granted.

Strong girls aren’t going to make you the center of their universe, because they have more to worry about than their love life, but they are always going to treat you with respect. They are going to give you the attention and affection you deserve. They are going to stay with you because they love you, not because they need you.

If you marry a strong girl, you will end up in a strong relationship. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
