The ideal husband

I came across an interesting article today entitled "The Ideal Husband". I've summarized the main point here, and yes, what is good for the goose is good for the gander... the criteria apply to both partners in a relationship.

1) Never marry a man who has no friends. Be sure that you like your man's friends, because we tend to be like our friends
2) Be sure that you have compatible spending habits... a miser and a spendthrift won't be happy together in the long run
3) He must have a sense of humour
4) He must be able to clearly and honestly communicate his feelings
5) You are marrying into a family, not just the man. Are there signs of mass disfunction in his family?
6) Are your belief systems compatible?
7) Be sure that he has a good character: politeness, courtesy, respect win out over violence, lying, control issues, secretiveness

For the full text, go here:

I would also add
8) Be certain that you both are clear, honest and on the same page about wanting children
