Most of us guys would like to settle down and find a wife one day. But before you do, here are some characteristics to look for in a woman to determine if she's wife material.
The most important characteristic is love. Love is having respect for each other--you can't live without each other, you laugh and dream together and prepare for a future together. It's important that she makes you feel happy inside and vice-versa and you know in your heart that you will be there for each other emotionally, physically and sexually. Aim for the type that can be a Jekyll and Hyde --that is, a woman who can easily transform from the freak in bed to the lady in the street that mom likes!
The woman who will be your future wife must be someone who you can be honest with and will be honest with you all the time. Without complete transparency in the relationship, there is ground for mistrust, and you don't want that. If you're going to spend the rest of your life with a woman, you both should be in agreement on some major issues of belief, most specifically religion and other moral stances and be in line with each other on issues of children, religion and family.
Both of you should be able to get along very well and have personalities that click well. She has to have a good sense of humor, not be totally indecisive, be able to take a joke every now and then and be at somewhat talkative. She doesn't have to look as good as superstar Halle Berry or be really book-smart with a college degree, but you do want to marry a woman who thinks logically, and makes intelligent decisions when it comes to life, in things like personal finance, and career advancement.
Avoid women with emotional baggage and never marry a woman with cruel intentions toward any one in the world. A kind-hearted woman would be respectful to others in general, and be out to do good in the world. Basically, she must have respect for herself and makes you want to be better man.
