Ever wonder what men REALLY want in a wife? You may think that you’re wifey material, but are you really? Psychologist, minister, and author Dr. Alduan Tartt reviewed the US Census data that detailed that close to 83% of African-American women are married or have been married at least once by age 55 and over.
So get it out of your mind that there isn’t enough men out there. When it comes to finding love, commitment and marriage, there is hope, despite what you may have heard.
It seems like everybody is giving out dating and relationship advice these days. I know there are an abundance of men out there attempting to give you “tips” on how to be become a better woman. But instead of hearing it from someone else, hear it from from these husbands who took a survey of the top five characters they wished for most in a spouse. Here’s what they said:
What Husbands Want in Wives
Honorable Mention: 6) Honesty
While it didn’t make the top 5, honesty still is a trait that is very close to what men desire in a life-long wife. Real men respect an honest woman. In fact, they yearn for one. A woman that possesses the ability to be open and honest about what she wants is one that can clearly articulate how she does and doesn’t feel. There’s nothing like it.

4) Recreational Companion
Can you play with him and make his world more fun with you in it? Can you go to a sports game, play golf, watch a movie, travel, and do other stuff together with you and him or his friends?
Can you be sociable in a number of different circles? For both sexes, this has been steadily moving up the list and become more important.

Because today’s married couples are more likely to be friends and have mutual circles of friends, it makes sense that this has become a more attractive characteristic.
3) Physical Attractiveness
Can you keep your attractiveness high with self-care so that he is able to brag on you to his friends and always desire you physically?
Women’s looks have become increasingly important to men over the years. The trait has jumped up on the list, from No. 15 back in the late 50s.
