What exactly do people mean when they use the term ‘Wife Material’? The answer to this popular question is not as straightforward as some people would like to imagine. Let us look at some of the general qualities that make a lady ‘wife material’.
You challenge him
If you challenge him to be a better person, then you are on the right track. No one wants to get married to someone who agrees with everything he says. Challenging him does not mean that you should disagree with him all the time, but rather that you point out some of the things you think he has missed in his decisions. You should also share your point of view on issues to give him a different perspective of things.
You can cook
Yes, you need to know how to cook. I know this may sound chauvinist but the truth is that every man appreciates a woman who can cook. You don’t have to be able to cook like a five-star chef but you need to know how to put together something in the kitchen. If you are not that good in the kitchen, keep reading to see if you meet the other qualities discussed below.
You have a life
Having your own life is important as no one wants to marry a woman who is totally dependent on him. You need to have your own career or money making venture, your own friends and your own ambitions among other things.
You do not want him to feel as if he is the only thing you live for as this puts too much pressure on him. Have something going on so that when the two of you come together, you can build something even better by lifting each other to greater heights.
You have a sense of humor
We can all agree that not everyone is funny but everyone can have a sense of humor. Being able to laugh is a very important aspect in every relationship. No one wants to get married to a person who is serious all the time, there are times to be serious and times to loosen up.
You don’t embarrass him in public
Have you ever seen those women who embarrass their men in public? They can be dramatic and unapologetic and to be honest no one wants to get married to them. Even if you disagree with him in public or in front of your friends, you don’t have to embarrass him right there and then. Wait till you are alone to confront him about it to ensure his ego is not bruised.
