|Love me, love my mum|
Beware the commitment-phobe who suddenly decides he wants to settle down - a leopard doesn't change his spots that easily. If, months after popping the question, you still haven't set the date, you may be looking at a very long engagement.When the man you intend to marry phones his mum daily and brings her along on dates, you might want to imagine what life will be like once you wed her precious boy.
|"Ask Ma if you can have a Mr Whippy..."|
When the bloke you hope to marry has to ask his dad, gran and granddad before he can pop the question, it's safe to assume you won't come first in the relationship. And if Daddy had a mistress for most of his first marriage, you'd better hope cheating isn't as hereditary as a receeding hairline!OK, it's perfectly understandable that a man wants to take his time and be sure he's met the right girl before popping the question but eight years? You'll sooner get liver spots on your hand than get a ring on your finger.

When you meet your new fella at work, and he ditches his wife and then shacks up with you, can you ever really trust him 100 per cent round the vending machine again?
