Virgo in Marriage
Virgo in Marriage
(Skip below for Virgo husband)
If you whisper sweet nothings to her, she’ll grimace and say, “speak up or else stop talking, you’re hissing in my ear!” If you pull out your memory box, and show her that you kept a drawing you made of the two of you when you first became friends in kindergarten, she’ll point out that “you had some trouble coloring within the lines, didn’t you?” Look into her eyes, tell her she looks as beautiful now as she did the day you got married, and she’ll say, “So you’re saying I looked like a woman in her forties with three kids and twenty extra pounds on my wedding day?” There’s no winning with the Virgo wife and that’s lesson number one.
She won’t fight fair, so her arguments will be blunt yet incisive, and leave you bleeding from every point you were planning to make by just the first round. So don’t bother arguing. Lesson number two: She is always right, especially when she is clearly wrong. Don’t try to point out she’s wrong, because you’ll just end up in an argument, and you know from lesson number one that you won’t win it. Lesson number three: she forgets nothing, like an elephant. Lesson number four: don’t tell her she’s like an elephant! Lesson number five, and pay attention, because this is the most important one: she’s worth all of it.
The Virgo woman that walks down the aisle is really a child with an old woman’s mind, trapped in a young woman’s body. She petulant and impertinent, but is also surprisingly mature and wise. She’ll be childlike in her demands for your love and your attention, but she’s incredibly mature in how much love and attention she feeds you. A Virgo wife is nearly a saint, and can play every role to absolute perfection. She’s tidy and organized, and will enjoy cooking your favorite meals, picking out your best clothes, listening to your problems, remembering your appointments, and loving you implicitly. To the rest of the world, she might come across as self-centered and aloof, incapable of sparing concern for anyone or anything else. But it’ll be because you’re the center of her life, and it’s you she lavishes her every ounce of attention upon. There is no other sign in the Zodiac that considers a spouse a part of them, as much as the Virgo woman does. She won’t make many friends or win many admirers with how much she adores you, but why do you care, you lucky bastard? You have the woman every man wants.
She’s so calm and cool on the outside, like a typical earth sign, that you’ll mistake her for a paradise island, when she’s really a torrential storm of emotions and passion on the inside. But it’s so far within her that only a select few will be exposed to it, and you’ll be right at the center of the storm, standing beside her on the helm of a ship.
The Virgo woman you dated and the Virgo woman you marry are two separate creatures. The former will be pleasant and joyful, surprise you with thoughtfulness, laugh at your every joke (even the crude ones), and be a dream to be around. The latter isn’t exactly a nightmare, but if you don’t understand her, you’ll think she’s been possessed. Because once she knows she’s yours, she’ll become possessive, emotional and extremely sensitive. She might react badly to even your gentlest jokes, and will be vulnerable to anything you say or do. But if you can keep her happy and love her as much as she loves you, then she’ll still be a dream woman.
As a mother, she’s loving and comforting, and will ensure her children get the best life she can provide. But she’s also critical, a little short-tempered, and liable to expect the best behavior from them. Incidentally, that’s what she expects from you, too. She wants you to be the best version of yourself, and she’ll help you become that person. That might seem controlling of her, and perhaps it is, but don’t complain; because if you remember that all-important lesson number five, then you’ll realize that she’s worth it.
If you’re standing on your balcony on a clear, cool night, waiting for your Virgo prince to climb up the ivy, take your hand and kiss you under the moonlit skies, then you’ll probably die of frostbite waiting for him. And even then, he won’t come. The Virgo man has no room in his world for fairy-tale romance. He’s a by-the-numbers guy, who likes everything to be practical, direct and material. Don’t expect him to propose to you with a long, sweet poem, or promise to sweep up all the stars in the sky and lay them at your feet. “You’re so silly,” he’ll tell you, “You know it’s impossible to sweep up stars!” That’s not to say that he can’t be romantic, but his definition of it is different from yours. He will enjoy the real, visceral things in life, and consider it romantic when you share them together. He’ll like taking you to a baseball game, or else to a really exclusive record store, so you can bond over your love for music. His approach to everything in life is slow and measured, and so he won’t rush into anything, especially not marriage. He might be standing next to you on a bus (Virgo men are too practical to take their cars out all the time, especially with the gas prices being the way they are), be staring thoughtfully out the window, and then turn to you and say, “hey, we should get married. This way we can go on our honeymoon in the off-season, when ticket prices are low.” You’ll stand there dumb-founded that he proposed to you as casually as saying, “I think I want to get a Honda,” or even more casual than that, because he would never rush into buying a new car like that. But if you’re in love with him, and want to marry him, then don’t be offended and get used to it. The fact is that because he puts a lot of detailed thought into his decisions, it means he is ready to marry you, and is convinced he can be committed to you. He doesn’t do anything flimsily, without conviction, so he’ll definitely be a loyal husband to you.
As a husband, he’s the symbol of a provider. He’ll be obsessed with accumulating wealth, and will be very careful with spending. He’ll find every financial loophole out there so that your savings account grows steadily. He’ll be gentle and reliable, though can be prone to snapping at you for trivial things like dropped plates, spilled sauce or lost keys. He’s a perfectionist at heart, though perhaps not in practice (but don’t you point that out to him), and expects a high standard of everyone. Emotion and passion do not break through his defenses, so don’t bother trying. Even the most lustful Virgo man is relatively aloof when it comes to sex, and it’s because he’s the symbol of temperance and moderation. He might appear insensitive when you come to him with an emotional problem, and it’s not because he doesn’t care, but because he doesn’t know how to handle it. He understands logic and rationale, not feelings and emotions.
Fatherhood won’t appeal to him, because he lacks the imagination or sensitivity to enjoy children. But once he’s a father, he’ll watch over them protectively, and treat them the way he would a low-risk financial investment (which says a lot) and ensure they have a stable home. For all that he lacks as a romantic, passionate partner, he’ll make up for with his stability and composure. He’ll give you a good home, a good life and be a tower of support for when you need it. But first, get off that balcony before you freeze to death! He’s not coming to your balcony, lady!
