There are many different definitions of “marriage material” and there doesn’t have to be anything old school about it. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be a good catch, especially when you want a man to be one.

If you’re looking for a man with a good job, great listening skills, and a beautiful body, it doesn’t hurt to make sure you fit some of those requirements yourself. What do you think it takes to make a woman marriage material? And should she care if she fits the bill?

    I’m am SO SICK and tired of articles that constantly stress how women, specifically “black women”, need to do to get and keep a man. Why don’t you post more articles about men being fathers, husband material, committed and trustworthy. Women have to constantly bend over backwards to get a piece of a man regardless of his occupation and self worth. This is old news! Why don’t you right more articles about brothers and sisters building better friendships and going with the flow. Why does it have to be so many games and rules to this. Most men dont truly want an independant woman but you tell them to match his worth, if you want to have a wealthy man and etc. #ridiculous

      The article is about women being mArriage material not men. Stick to the subject.

      It’s true there is no point in you following all these steps to end up with a loser – who is a liability to you and is undeserving of your love. The right partner also has to have some of the qualities mentioned above.

        Absolutely miszmannaz……by the way, just as a side note, this evening my wife and I went to see the movie, THE BUTLER, staring Oprah Winfry…..It was excellent, I highly recommend it……a touching story during the civil rights era…..God Bless……

    Good post. However, leave room for growth as people grow and learn new things (some good) about each other everyday. This is coming from a married woman

No thanks
