The Best Types of Men to Marry

March 31, 2011  |  


In case you were wondering how to sort through your pile of potential marriage candidates, here are the best types of men to marry…

The “Been There, Done That” Man
You don’t have to marry a 100 percent innocent, puritanical guy, but if you marry a man with a “past,” the key is to ensure that he’s been there, done that, and ain’t never going back again.
PRO: This man’s experience will teach him the way forward, and prevent him from repeating the same B.S. mistakes.
CON: He’s usually older.

The One You Didn’t Notice in High School
The guy you didn’t notice in high school was often too busy prepping responsibly for his future. He wore glasses…maybe he still does, maybe he’s gotten contacts now, maybe he’s eyeing some Lasik surgery (pun intended)…whatever the case, he is full-on ready to take care of a family and has no need to play irresponsible bad boy. His mates may do the “player-player” thing, but it’s just not in his looks or his character.
PRO: He’s a nerd.
CON: You’re not.
Girl…you better get your nerd on, if you don’t want to become a love statistic. Just saying.

The Excruciatingly Honest Man
Would you rather marry a man who tells you that your grades, work ethics, weave track and false eyelashes are falling off, or one that that just lies to you as you do your worst? Exactly. You want to marry the painfully, excruciatingly honest man.
PRO: He’ll never lie to you…
CON:…not even if he cheats–in which case, you’d have to dump him.

The Feminist
There is nothing sexier than a man who fights for women’s rights and does his best to ensure that women are not mistreated. Of course, you don’t want a faux feminist who only does “feminism,” so he could do women. You want a man who understands women’s struggles, respect his mother’s, sister’s, daughter’s and wife’s pains and wants to do something about them!
PRO: You’re his woman, right? He’ll march for you.
CON: None whatsoever. Hehe.
