Like many single girls of my age, I often think about what would make a marriage successful and the type of person I would like to marry to in the future. Finding an ideal husband is not the only key to a happy marriage, but it certainly is important. When I was younger, my idea of a perfect husband was someone who's got a great body, tall nose, sexy lips, strong jaws, and eyes that can look deep into my soul. After I got my heart broken a few times by some so called good-looking men, I realized how superficial I was. Knowing that to maintain a marriage is hard enough now-a-days, not to mention a happy one, I have learned to lower my standards.
So what makes a man a great husband? What kind of characteristics must a man possess that would make me want to say yes the moment he proposes? Honesty and faithfulness are the key words.
I don't want him to tell me that he is studying when he is actually going out with his friends; I want him to call me when he said he would; and I don't want him to hide any secrets from me. If a man is constantly lying to me, he has to make up even more lies to cover up for the lies he told before. Surely I will find out about it sooner of later. If a guy lies to me about the smallest things, imagine what other things he might be lying to me about. Mutual honesty is by far the most important in a relationship, so how can I possibly spend the rest of my life with someone who wouldn't even tell the truth? Another very important requirement my ideal husband must meet is financial stability.
