My perfect future husband or wife

Whenever I attend weddings and see the adorable pairs of newly-weds, I would wonder how my future wife be like. One thing I can be sure of is that she would not just be any other woman. There are certain qualities that I would like her to have.

She should be of medium build, that is, neither too fat nor too skinny. The same goes when it comes to stature - we would be an odd-looking couple if my wife is a lot taller or shorter than me. While looks are not of vital importance to me, I would not want her to be too ugly either. So long as she possesses a normal appearance, I am fine with it, since I believe that it is the inner beauty that counts.

She also has to be a responsible and faithful person. It is obvious that an immature and childish woman would find it hard to know and take on her responsibilities as a wife, such as to keep the house spick and span and prepare nutritious meals for the family.

It is important for my wife to be faithful to me because when she marries me, she and I unite as 'one' and she promises to be with only me for the rest of her life. Being unfaithful breaks that promise and when that happens, there is no longer any trust between us. The loss of trust can subsequently give rise to many other problems. Therefore it is essential that she remains faithful to me as long as we live.

As far as character traits are concerned, she needs to be kind, understanding, caring and sympathetic among some other positive personality traits. After a hard day at work, I expect my wife to be comforting and appreciative of my efforts to provide for the family. To be a loving mother, she definitely should also love children and enjoy spending time with them, so as to ensure that they have a decent upbringing. I really love children and would not appreciate a woman who dislikes them or are impatient with them.

In order to have stronger family ties, it is also important that her interests are more or less similar to mine. I love reading and fishing. Although I do not expect her to like fishing, she should at least support me and appreciate my catch after a fishing trip. I also hope that she could accompany me to some of the trips, if not all of them. Reading and fishing are so much a part of me. I can hardly imagine someone who shuns both hobbies.

I understand that such a wife is not easy to find but it is not an impossible task. I trust that the right person would appear when the time is right. When the time comes, I should also make sure that I am ready for marriage and have the same qualities. Otherwise, it would be unfair to expect my spouse to have such qualities when I myself am lacking in them.
