What Makes Someone Wife or Husband Material?

What Makes Someone "Wife" or "Husband" Material?

Here's a post from OnSugar blog My DISFunkshion.

It's very easy to assume the qualities that make a man or woman marriage material. Characteristics such as trust, understanding and a good personality might be on the top of our lists but when it boils down to it, it seems that there are very different traits to look out for.

For the ladies:

According to, you should look for elements of sensitivity and reliability. If he's attentive and displays thoughtful gestures, then he's worth considering as he has a natural caring nature.

Is he a hard worker? If he strikes a balance between working hard and enjoying time out, then you have someone whose "hard work is often motivated by the drive to build a foundation for, and ultimately help to provide for, a family."

A classic indicator is if he looks to the future with you in mind. Discussing the long-term future is a big deal in itself so if he keeps you in mind along the way, it is a definite thumbs up.
