How to Know if She Is Wife Material

When a man finally decides he wants to settle down and build a family, he needs to be sure he is marrying the best girl for the job. Men are quite fickle in choosing their wives. Their decisions could be based on a lot of things, but one thing is certain: he wants someone who is wife material. But how would you know that? Is there a way to assess whether a girl is wife material?

  • Determine the level of your attraction. Before you marry her, make sure it is not just a sudden rush of feelings. Remember that marriage is a lifelong commitment, so you have to make the right choices. Are you attracted to her just because of her looks or the way she dresses? Do you like her because she makes you feel good? Determine how deep your feelings are for her, and from there decide whether you are willing to drive down the road with her.

  • Know her character and values. Do her values match yours or does they collide? Do her values often cause both of you to fight and argue? If so, these are not good signs. Good values and character are important in choosing a wife because she will be the one to raise your children. Her actions will be a reflection on how your children will behave. Does she have integrity and respect for others? Is she industrious and kind? These are the values you want her to have to be able to raise children with good moral character as well.
  • Know how she handles money. Men serve as the provider; it is, however, the decision of both the husband and the wife if she will work outside the home. But the handling of money is typically a task usually given to the wife. She is the one who budgets the money and makes sure it is spent properly. Is she a big spender who indulges in things that are not necessarily important? Does she buy things for herself first before buying what the children or family need? You need to make sure you have a wife who knows how to handle the finances properly, or else you will end up working just to provide for all her luxuries.
  • Know how she handles kids. Your wife will be your partner to raise your children. It is important that she is motherly. Does she love kids? Is she nurturing and caring? Is she affectionate toward children? These are positive signs of a good mother-to-be. The majority of who your children will become is dependent on how your wife rears them.
  • Know how she handles you. Is she harsh toward you? Does she take care of you? These are the simple questions you need to answer. You want to have a wife who will support you and cater to your needs. You want someone who can be your friend and lover. If she can provide both, then you’re in for a great catch.
