Are You a Future Wife or Forever Wifey?

July 25, 2011  |  

Hola chicas! Dr. Phoenyx here again! And today’s discussion is about “getting that ring”- or more specifically, “are you ever going to get that ring?” Now I’m not knocking women that want to do the “Oprah thing,” but I know there are many of you that do desire the bliss of matrimony. And if marital bliss with your boo is the ultimate goal, then you need to start being realistic about where your relationship is truly headed- if anywhere at all.

I’m a die-hard romantic, but I’m also a realist. I’ve seen many cases of women who truly desire marriage, and do everything to satisfy their men, only to ultimately fall into the “wifey” trap. Now “wifey” may sound all cute and reassuring, but it’s bogus terminology invented by men that want to “claim” women without really claiming them. “Wifey” is just a glorified “girlfriend.” And it’s definitely not a “fiancé” or “wife.” You know, the chick that actually has a ring on her finger?

Now I never like being the bearer of bad news, but I love my fellow ladies too much to lie to them. That’s why I wanted to share a few signs that will let you know whether a guy is really taking your relationship seriously and in the direction of marriage- or just stringing you along.

Here are five ways to tell if he’s never, eva, eva, eva going to put a ring on it. Ok… maybe using “never, eva, eva, eva” is a bit harsh (I did say I’m realist ladies). But let me soften up a bit and allow my romantic side to close this out.

Yes ladies, there are always exceptions to the rule. He may put a ring on it after seven years of dating, six years of living together, five kids, and constant harassment on your part–but do you really have time to risk and possibly waste on that small glimmer of hope? Think about it. And while you do, check out this list! Here are 5 ways to tell if you are a future wife or forever wifey:
