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

Here's a post from OnSugar blog My DISFunkshion.

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.
