Out of all the signs in the zodiac, Cancer is the one who's most likely to get married. After all, your sign rules the fourth house of home and family, so finding that special someone to grow old with is up there on your priority list. According to an astrologer, there are three zodiac signs that Cancer is most likely to marry — and you may want to keep your eye out for an earth sign.

"Cancer is all in for marriage, especially to promote family," Philip Young, Ph.D., astrologer and spiritual advisor at AskAstrology, tells Bustle. "This sign is not afraid of commitment and will rather demand or expect it. To love and be loved by a Cancer individual is to embrace long-term commitment."

The perfect partner for Cancer is someone who loves taking care of their family, including extended family members and close friends. “If the Cancer individual is the provider or an equal financial partner, then they will want a partner who really takes care of the home and family emotionally and practically,” Young says. If Cancer is the caretaker, all they’ll want is to be respected, honored, and appreciated by their partner in return.

Cancer wants to have a well-balanced relationship where each partner's strengths complement the other's. Out of all the zodiac signs, the more stable, grounded, and practical earth signs can give the sensitive and emotional Cancer the type of dynamic they're looking for in a relationship. So, here are the three zodiac signs Cancer is most likely to marry, according to Young.

Taurus (April 20 — May 20)

In astrology, Taurus forms a sextile with Cancer, which is really good for compatibility and positivity in the relationship. Both Taurus and Cancer prefer quiet nights in over wild nights out on the town. They love home-cooked meals, and they're also very family-oriented. They share a lot of the same core values that could make a marriage work. "With Taurus, Cancer gets a solid foundation, steadfastness, and reliability," Young says. "This is certainly a marriage that can last, especially through any 'for worse' stretches. The idea of divorce has no real leverage with these two signs once they commit."

Virgo (August 23 — September 22)

Virgo also sextiles Cancer, which means they'll get along right away. As an earth sign, Virgo will bring practicality to the marriage. According to Young, Virgo is the problem-solver and inventor. "Virgo will work hard to make sure everything works in the relationship at the day-to-day level and over the long-term," he says. "Cancer will love the attention to detail, and meticulousness Virgo brings to the commitment of the marriage." Cancer will appreciate having a partner who's just as devoted to the relationship as they are.

Capricorn (December 22 — January 19)

Opposite signs tend to gravitate towards each other, and Cancer and Capricorn are no exception. Although they're very different, they complement each other in a way that would make a marriage work. For instance, Capricorn rules the 10th house of prosperity, public image, and career, while Cancer rules the fourth house of family. According to Young, they make a very balanced pair, with Capricorn taking on the provider's role and Cancer being the caretaker. Cancer has someone who can provide them with the sense of security they crave, while Capricorn will appreciate having a warm and loving partner to come home to.
