One for the ladies, ok, how would you like a Stepford Husband? A man who does not argue A man who does not have affairs A man who doesn't put football before your needs A man who is 100% faithful, honest, true, loyal and loves you unconditionally A man who has no bad habits A man who will do all the housework for you and everything you ask of him A man who will dedicate his life and worship you A man who is totally obedient without question No strings, no catches, a perfect man, a perfect husband, he's yours Would you take him? If not why not? And before you ask No I am not offering myself here, I may hate football but I can't iron and I have too many bad habits and an obedient wolf? Unheard of Hope I made you smile and men you can answer if you wish but don't let your wives/partners see your response, I don't want to blamed for any 'fallout'

How boring would he be!!! It'd be nice for maybe a day but after that I would be so bored of him, I like to do stuff myself and if he had no bad habits then you would have nothing to moan about, its always good to have a moan now and then, it feels so much better, I could change several things about my hubby but I wouldn't want him to be perfect and a robot!!! Maybe I could just borrow one to show him what hes meant to do now and then, thatd be good ha ha!!!

thanx for the comment. And the problem is ur married. unmarried likes "yes man" but married girls r like my kind of guy. thats the only prob i have in my life. if the unmarried girls begin to like my kind of guys than it will be not a prob for us. but unmarried girls r blind in this matter. what will happen to me??

I have never met a perfect man. There are a few that I would say are somewhat close to that though. But, I would not want someone who is perfect either. A robot type is not what I would like. Although, I would want the man to be faithful, honest and loving. What more could a person want than that? If the other perks come with him, that would be considered a bonus.

I could not live with someone like that.I like a man to be a man.My husband watches the football and decides what we can afford and we can do things between us,My husband does not know how the washing machine works and struggles with the vacuum cleaner,he can iron but only if he has to, as it takes so long we drain the electric resources in the south east.He can cook eggs mash and beans,bacon sandwiches and spaghetti bolognaise my son nearly has a fit if I am not around to cook tea as he knows whats coming.Then again I cannot do the digging,mend the car,wash the car, peel the potatoes or use the petrol lawnmower so there you are some of these things I cannot do I either hate,or is to heavy for me.There is nothing stepford about any off us ,we might be a bit awkward thats all.Perfection would drive me around the bend, besides I like doing things indoors and my husband would rather do the garden and decorate.We all have our own idea of perfection and ours suits us.

Sounds you have a lovely little family thank you, this has made wolfie happy because perfection is not it seems what everyone wants, and yet you hear so many people wanting the 'perfect partner' they just don't exist and I think in all honesty we wouldn't want them too!

Thank you very much for my BR Wolfie .I think that is why some people stay on their own they are looking for something that does not exist,like we agreed on beauty is in the eye of the beholder and so is perfection.x

I am still deeply in love with hubby the longer I am in this relationship the more I know him the more I love him I don't know how to live without him although I will live but it would be odd and empty a stepford husband won't be able to take his place

Hey wolfie! No thanks! I think that a Stepford Husband would be kind of boring! I thin that would be no fun to have someone who is too perfect! My bf can iron and he doesn't even mind cleaning, he actually likes it! And we both love football! He does have some bad qualities that I could definitely do without, but then no one is perfect but that's what makes them human! You can keep the Stepford Hubby for someone else! I'll keep the one I got for now at least! lol

This discussion has really opened up my eyes my friend, it seems no one wants real perfection and yet all these glossy magazines about women and men too who want to be beautiful and being beautiful in a way is wanting to be perfect isn't it? Even hunks Like Brad Pitt have their flaws and are far from perfection

One of the things that frustrates me is trying to argue to a brick wall. He he he! I would like those qualities except the not arguing part because it would mean that he doesn't have his own mind and has a personality as interesting as a drying paint. I find that my partner has to be mentally stimulating and have an interesting personality, quirks and all, or else I would bored to the point comatose with a puppet of a husband. So to answer your question, God forbid that I would have a stepford husband!

Hi wolfie34, not for me. I love a good argument keeps things fresh. My man doesn't have affairs, doesn't sit in front of the tv to watch football or anything else, he is also faithful, honest, true and loyal. He has lots of bad habits, just like me which makes life interesting to say the least. I do the housework but he does the cooking, and grocery shopping, loves to cook and more power to him for it. I don't want someone who worships me, but worships God, which my husband does! So no wolfie I don't need, or desire the stepford husband, happy with what I got when I met my husband 20 years ago. But thanks for a fun discussion. Be happy, be joyful, be safe and be strong! oohcute2340

Erm no thanks, I'm not really interested in robots! I demand 100% fidelity with no exceptions but a man without any bad habits at all does not exist, nor does a woman without any bad habits. If someone tells me they have the perfect marriage, I will smile politely at them and pity them in my head because I know they're lying. No one is perfect - we can meet a partner who is suited to us perfectly but it does not mean that they are perfect. Perfection is boring anyway LOL! Oh and how could I expect my man to put my needs before football if I can't put his needs before my fave programmes? No siree bob, I'll stick to my less than perfect but adorable hubby just as he is :)

that is interesting.. I actually don't need that.. but I would like a man who is 100% faithful, honest, true,loyal and loves me unconditionally.. To me, that's really good enough.. because other than that, bad habits can be changed.. and if he's already 100% faithful, he will not have affairs... and to me, that's really great!! this dicussion did put a smile accross my face.. thanks.. :) Have a great day!

Hi Wolfie, You have shattered my illusions, I thought all men were like Stepford Husbands anyway LOL, no just kidding, no I think that would be just too boring, a faithful one yes but one with a backbone who had his own opinions etc else I would be the one likely to stray for a bit of excitement and I am loyal if in a relationship. Huggles. Ellie :D

This discussion has given me back some relief, because I thought perfection was well sought after, you only need to look at the glossy mags to see celebrities striving for perfection in looks etc, but not everyone wants that do they? Take away the looks and what have you got. But even in the 21st century I still feel the majority of people go for looks rather than whats inside, well that's what I've found, I have lots to give but people don't look twice at me because I haven't got the looks. But on the other hand if I was perfect in everyway, shape and form would that change?

Eeeeerrrrr Wolfie, have you actually looked in the mirror lately??? If you weren't gay there would be heaps of women go for you so I am sure the same applies to the guys but what you say is true beauty comes from within anyway. Don't go putting yourself and your looks down ok, your FIT. Nah,nah, nah, nah. Extra big huggles. Ellie :D

Hi ya wolfie34 At first I thought I would jump to the thought of having someone do everything for me but then I thought actually I wouldn't!! I am too independent and anything a man tried to do for me now wouldn't be the right way and I would find it hard to relax and let someone else get on with it. I have had a man who would do almost anything for me and what ever I said (more or less) he would do. I like a bloke to question me and confront me sometimes but not in an aggressive, argumentative way, someone who is a bit of a challenge for me. I like a bit of rough around the edges, maybe that is why I got myself into the trouble I did. You know though I like a man who is suited and booted too. I would be such a challenge for any bloke me as I am neither this way or that!! LOL

I did not see the movie... so maybe I am missing something. But looking at the answers... one cannot help feeling that women wants a man that they can nag the whole day long. It would be no fun if he was perfect. On the other end... ask them the question... What's wrong with your husband? And each one of them will have a list... a page long. The longer they can make that list... The more superior to man they feel.

It is interesting when I was having my psychology class, the tutor was telling us about the amount of affairs that men have yet when the question was asked of the women present they all said that their husband would never have an affair. They all knew their husbands inside out, yet the chances of one of them having an affair well! But I like what you said it's true when you ask a woman what is wrong with a man they'll give you pages and pages of complaints and all those cartoons where women are moaning about what their men cannot do and that's just in the bedroom department LOL!

heck no would i want a man like that, wheres the fun in getting what you want all the time sometimes its nice to work for what you want, beg a little. Its nice to have a man that has his own thing like I have mine. If my husband was like that all i would end up doing is walking all over him and becoming 400lbs. As for the arguing if you dont fight with your husband then you cant make up.. :( no way! I will stick with my husband just the way he is.. well i guess maybe a couple things i would change lol. Just playing Nobodys perfect i am sure not i would expect my husband to be.

No thanks, but I would like a man that is small enough to keep in a pocket and you just pour water on him when you need him to put up shelves or move heave objects. You see, no matter how good the Stepford man was, he'd still take up space that could be used to a better purpose. Take care.

I saw the discussion right before I was about to log out for a while and couldn't resist. So my dear Wolf I will tell you No I don't want a stepford husband.. The reason being is because I don't want a slave I want an equal I want someone that has a mind and that will use and stand up for himself and me at times since I can take care of myself. But above all that I like individuality. Our bad habits and good ones make us who we are and I I would hate to strip anyone of there individuality. I might like heavy metal and pop and every type of music known to man and my boyfriend only like rock and metal do we clash in the music arena at times yes. Does he have bad habits that drive me nuts. Yes but that is what makes him him and I wouldn't want him to give up the essence that he has. We are who we are and we shouldn't ask anyone to change for us. We need to learn to accept people for who they are not what we want them to be. When we accept someone into all lives we need to be prepared to accept the good with the bad. Not just the good. So many people now adays just want to deal with the good and not the bad. grrrrr. I thnk people need to realize we are individuals and not stepford issued boyfriends/girlfriends/husbands/wives. I know I'll be under fire with this response but they are how i feel...

i know this is old but couldnt help answering it. i had such a man. but he passed away 10-8-'02. i know you probably dont believe it but its true. problem is i only had him 8yrs. found him late in life after a lot of terrible marriages. i used to tell him he was perfect and being the funny guy he was he'd reply "dont say that. you know what happened to the last perfect man!" always the joker. sadly he did die. btw, your avatar is quite cute to. do you own it or is it a pic you found? the wolf i mean.
