At a young age of 17, we are just a few years away from adulthood. It is only normal for someone to picture their future life partner at this age. More and more divorces are happening every year, therefore having in mind the kind of partner and the type of marriage you want actually helps prepare you for the future.
Start of crap
Personally, I would prefer a muscular man. He must have siz packs, big biceps and also a firm chest. This is so that I do not get bullied around him. He should also have broad shoulders to protect and cover me in times of need. He must also be tall. The ideal height would be above 180cm. He should also be handsome with sharp features. A sharp nose is a big plus.
Apart from anything physical, he must be a Christian. He must be spiritually strong. I believe a couple should not put all faith in each other to make a marriage work but faith must be put in God to bless the marriage. He must be loyal and trustworthy. He would not lie and definitely should not flirt with anyone. He must be hardworking and determined, only then will he be rich enough to support me during shopping season.
Patience is very important. My future husband must be someone who would put up with my rants and spend time with the kids. He should also be good in sports so that his evenings would be spent playing football or basketball with the kids. He must be smart and have a good sense of humour. He must be someone who will brighten up the mood at home.
He must be talented and interested in extreme sports. It would be best if he could sing, breakdance and beatbox. He should also be supportive, caring and sociable. He must be someone who can mix around at an event full of strangers easily. It would also help if he's a worldwide famous billionaire.
These are the traits I want in my future husband but the most important trait my husband should possess is to treat me like a princess and love me just the way I am.
Amazingly I got an A for this piece of crap.
And also by the looks of it...
I don't think I will get married LOL.
A popular saying goes, "Marriage involves three rings: the engagement ring, the wedding ring, and the suffering."
If it is commonly felt that marriage is so difficult, why do most people wish to get married? Probably, the instinct to find a mate is inherent in human beings; and I am no exception. Somehow, I believe that there is someone out there who was made specially for me, and, once I find him, we will fall in love, and get married; and only then will I feel complete. So, how will I recognise my Mr Right? What qualities should I be looking for?
First of all, I am not looking for "Mr Tall, Dark and Handsome". Character is more important than looks. I cannot deny that I am attracted to good-looking boys, but marrying solely for physical attraction will probably lead to short term pleasure but life-long regret. I have also noticed that handsome boys are often vain and arrogant, which I find most unattractive. One of the main things that I admire in a man is humility. Such a man will not boast about his wealth, intelligence or achievements, but, instead appreciate other people's abilities and achievements. He will also readily admit when he has made a mistake. Such a man would be a joy to live with.
Good communication is the key to any solid relationship, most of all, marriage. I would want my future husband to share his thoughts with me. I want to hear his dreams and to share in his struggles. On the other hand, I will also need someone who will be ready to listen to me, and interested to know what is happening in my life. There should be no secrets between us.
Life is full of challenges. We can expect to face failure as well as success; heartache as well as joy; boredom as well as excitement. So, the perfect husband should have a positive attitude and a good sense of humour. He should be witty and say things which make me laugh. The perfect husband would also be one who can see the silver lining behind every cloud, rather than focus on the flaws in every situation. With such a man, I will be encouraged to look at life in a happier and more positive way.
Above all other qualities, the perfect husband will be faithful. He must be someone who really believes in that marriage is made to last "till death do us part". He will be totally committed to our relationship, and willing to stay for the long haul, "in sickness and in health, for better or for worse"; as couples promise in the wedding vows. The perfect husband would not be distracted by other women; not even when I have lost my looks. He would be a "one woman man". In return, I will also promise my total loyalty and faithfulness to my future husband.
Actually, there are many other qualities that make a man perfect husband material. For example, one obvious quality would be the ability to provide; and, though it is not the most important quality, physical attraction must be a part of the equation for a marriage to work well. However, while it is easy to make lists, finding a man to live up to them will be very difficult. Furthermore, instead of focusing on my requirements for the perfect husband, I think I should recognise my own imperfections, and set about correcting them. As Barnett Brickner said, "Success in marriage does not come merely through finding the right mate, but through being the right mate."
