4 traits women look for in husbands

15 February 2016, 15:51 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Women are keen on who they get married to. Here are a few traits they are keen on.

Having standards is not such a bad thing

As long as you are reasonable about what you want and need there is nothing wrong with speaking your mind when it comes to the person you choose to settle with. Most of the time, women are put off by the people close to them because they are apparently being too picky. If you know and understand yourself do not settle on someone that is clearly not pleasing you.

There is a difference between growing together and working with someone towards that direction as compared to someone you have to force that situation with. If they do not want what you want and they are clearly not working with you; the why are you staying?

If he is not acting like a husband then please find someone who does

Change can only happen if the man wants it for himself, never because marriage is going to make it happen. A man will act like a husband for the woman he would like as a wife and respects as a wife. If he is not doing so for you, he obviously does not think you deserve it. If as a boyfriend the man is stressing you then why are you still around; if he is stressing you now, he will stress you in marriage.

The person you choose to spend your life with, should appreciate your differences

It is rare to find a couple that likes everything the same. They like the same hobbies have the same interests and do or go everywhere together; very rare. The person you spend the rest of your life with should be able to understand you and what you like. Not pick you apart because of them or belittle them because they do not make sense to them. If you give them an idea and they laugh it off or tell you that you will never be able to accomplish it, it will reach a point they will make you lack confidence and have low self-esteem. They will eventually make you doubt yourself. Your partner should be a champion, even if your ideas fail, they are not there to say, ‘I told you so’ but are able to be encouraging and help you pick up.

Connection is always and has always been a factor

That is the only thing that will help you keep it together when everything else is failing. It will reach a point that the climax of your relationship is reached and the high is over. You will need something that will help you see the value of being that person. A person to have a casual conversation with; talk to about most things and someone that will try to understand where you are coming from. Don’t rush into a relationship because the sex is good at the moment, or they are doing this for you when nobody else can. That will eventually be mundane. Trust me!
