While wedding bells aren't the first thing on a guys mind when he meets someone special, it's definitely a thought that will at some point cross your mind. A lot of people these days date around for the thrill, but at the end of the day there are still a select few that date with a bigger purpose in mind -- marriage. As cliche as it may sound, when you know, you just know and that's just the truth of it all.
Guys have always been placed into a box when it comes to their criteria for that special woman in their life. Besides the obvious physical appearance, people usually generalize all men to want the most ridiculous and uncanny things when it comes to the woman they will get on bended knee for. Thanks to an amazing thread on Reddit asking men what they looked for in a wife, we have the opportunity to get inside the male mind a bit and find out what it truly is they look for in a future wife. Keep scrolling to see what they had to say.
"The ability to do nothing and be fine with it. My wife and I can get up on a Saturday and just sit on the couch. For hours doing nothing." —Blueberryhazlenut
"I look for what kind of relationships she has built in her life and who she chooses to surround herself with. If I expect to create a strong, lasting relationship with her, I want to see that she has been able to do that with her family, friends, or coworkers." —HighKingFingolfin
"The ability to help you scratch that part of your back where your hands can't reach no matter how hard you try." —Nivlik
"For me, one of the most important things is she needs to have a similar sense of humor. If she can't laugh at the same things I laugh at, then chances are she is not wife material." —-eDgAr-
"My wife, when she was my girlfriend, told me something I will never forget. She said, 'Trying not to love you is like trying not to be hungry.' It was one of the nicest things anyone's ever told me and it just made me feel how committed and loyal she was to me. She also used to take my socks off with her toes." —Anastik
