Qualities we search for in our future partner always differ from person to person, and time to time. Age, experiences and background are some influencing factors, but that of course doesn’t have a bearing on the reality that some things will always be there at the top of things you must give special consideration. Let’s take a quick look at the 10 most important ones.
It doesn’t make you a ‘gold- digger’ to want some comfort for both yourself and your kids in your marriage. Never compromise on this quality. Prospects are good, but not everyone can tap into theirs.
The days of ‘knight in shining armor’ isn’t over. Do not lower your standards for nothing. There is someone out there who knows how to treat a woman; care for her, and provide for her in all honesty. Find you one.
Call it reliability if you want. A man should be there when you expect him to. He should be someone you can run up to in trouble, and he wouldn’t chicken out. Your husband to be must fit this description perfectly. Don’t settle for a man who picks your calls when he feels like.
A humble man can do no wrong. He’ll wrong you, and apologise the moment he realises it. He’s never going to shy away from his responsibilities. Pride is one of the biggest destroyers of marriage. Be wary of a proud man.
He’ll give when he has, and not hold back even when he can assist those around him. Stingy people make relationships a difficult and boring task. They also tend to extend their appalling attitude to family and friends.
If he’s always about himself and his affairs, and never for once, puts your wellbeing ahead of his, he’s not going to make you happy.
The responsibility of your man is to shield you from trouble and harm. If he chickens out at the slightest challenge, he’s going to do a terrible job of being your husband.
Men who have drive always end up being successful because they know how to go after what they want. They don’t relent until they find success, and they’re good for your own maturity and growth.
RESPECT AND SUPPORT
You have needs of your own, you have dreams, and you have a career. Your man should be respectful and supportive of you, and the things you like.
Marriage isn’t always a wonderful experience, but yours can be different if you stick with the right qualities in that man. Never lower your standards; that just does you more harm than good. Elcrema wishes you the best.
