I am only seventeen. I doubt I will need to think about marriage in the near
future. However, that does not mean I have not thought about the person I would
like to marry one day. The person whom I think is fit to be my life partner
would have some very important qualities.
Firstly, he would be faithful and
loyal to me. A person who is faithful is trustworthy and dependable. He will not
cheat on his loved ones. He will be protective, and he will not do anything that
will make his partner feel insecure. This is very important in a relationship. A
wife must be able to have full confidence in her husband or else she would
become suspicious and jealous. A marriage cannot survive under such
circumstances. Hence, faithfulness is an essential quality in a husband.
Almost as important as faithfulness is patience. My ideal husband would be
very patient. He would not lose his temper if I kept him waiting for an hour. If
I cannot keep up with him, he will slow down for my sake. If I were to
lose my cool, he would remain calm. This is an important trait
because I am an impatient person. If both of us were impatient types, we would
end up quarrelling all the tune. An impatient man is rude and inconsiderate and
I would not be able to respect him, much less be attracted to him.
My ideal husband would have a good sense of humor. People with a good sense
of humor are fun to be around. They do not look at life so seriously nor do they
get weighed down by troubles. Instead, they have a positive outlook on life.
They are able to laugh at themselves and they are sporting. I love being with
jovial people like that. So the man I would
want to marry would be able to see the funny side of things. He would be able to
comfort me when I am feeling down and make me laugh.
In a nutshell, the three qualities of faithfulness, patience and having a
good sense of humor are essential for a relationship to last. Too often, young
ladies are attracted to good looks and great wealth. Physical
beauty will not last and wealth can be lost. It is the three qualities described
here that will help us weather the storms in
life. I am not sure if my ideal man exists but I hope he is somewhere on this
earth and that we will meet one day.
