You know, totalearnings...I can give you a list of the qualities that I like. But I'm married now and not even one single quality can I see in my husband. I always go for the brainy and good personality type of man. Physical is secondary only. :)

He should be smart, intelligent, with good personality. To be happy in life, he should be in good profession, and atleast he should have a house to live and should have saved money to as to settle down happily. SHe should be good at heart, very kind to every one.

Mine was an arranged marriage too and all along I was hoping I would get someone who would be as educated or more than me. I was also hoping for one who wouldn't be too orthodox, would have basic manners, spoke English well and would be caring and understanding. Of course I couldn't judge all of this when I first met my hubby, but I was impressed with his mannerisms and his smile absolutely floored me..lol Nobody is perfect and in a relationship we have to make changes and compromises here and there. I'm so glad he came my way and to tell you frankly I wouldn't change a thing in him:)

Conversation is very important to me - so the guy has to have the ability to converse with me. Coz ultimately when everything else fades, the ability to talk to each other is all that remains. I also need someone who is focused and does not get bogged down by life's difficulties. i need someone who is redy to face on all challenges together with me. I want someone who would share evry bit of his life with me, someone who genuinely cares not only about me but also the other people around him.

well I am married myself...These days parents does not choose partners for their children, at least not here in te US,however it doesn't sound like such a bad idea,since the divorce ate is so high...So your marriage was arranged by your parents? Does that mean that you was not given a choice?Was you in love when you married? Im sorry to ask so many questions,but i have often wondered how those arranged marriages work out..It might be the best kind,i don't know...I am married as I said, but the man I am married to has none or nearly none of the qualities that I was looking for,but he is good to me,no fighting or anything,but we are just comfortable with each other....

my marriage was arranged the traditional way. i had seen a couple of mathes before the one to whom i actually got married. but they didnt work out as the girl's parents werent willing to send the girl far away with me to where i am employed. they were just interested in some match that was from a near place for whatever reasons may be. i was looking a girl who would be kind and understanding one. and i was confident of my parents decision as they are my well wishers and choose the best after knowing thoroughly about the girl. now i am lucky i have got the one as expected.
