Qualities of Good Husband – Consider 60+ Qualities For A Happy Marriage

Qualities of good husband

As the excitement of the wedding and honeymoon wears off and you adjust to the wind and grind of real life, you realize you have a partner to share your joys and sorrows with.

Slowly, you become so familiar with each other that romance begins to fade. 

People do not always follow through on their wedding vows but if he is the type of man who wants to be the perfect husband to the woman he cherishes. 

Below are the best qualities that a man can possess.

1. He shares the same values (rules of life) with you

Values are the “rules of life” that govern how you live your life. They are deeply ingrained in personal beliefs that are fundamental to your identity. They’re also extremely difficult to modify.

Connecting with a man you want to marry on a spiritual, emotional, and value level is a key indicator of long-term marital success.

When you and your partner are on the same boat, you will be more confident that he is the man you want to marry.

When you both plan ahead for your marriage and know you can respect each other’s viewpoint on important marital issues (such as family dynamics, child-rearing, finance, in-laws, roles, and responsibilities), you know you’re on the right track.

2. He is emotionally mature and intelligent

A mature man is one who is responsible, emotionally intelligent, and able to control his impulses.

As a result, he is likely to be able to deal with the inevitable change, disappointment, stress, and conflict that life (and marriage) brings.

A well-balanced man can confront life and face-ups (and especially downs) in a constructive manner while remaining a resilient, supportive and engaging partner.

Look for a man who can respond responsibly to a difficult issue rather than reacting rashly to it.

3. He appreciates you and accepts your flaws

The old saying “Happy wife, happy life!” is true (and it works both ways “happy spouse” equals “happy house”).

When it comes to creating a happy relationship, appreciation goes a long way. In fact, feeling appreciated is a key component of living a happy life.

If you don’t feel appreciated or loved by your man, you’re taking a risk.

But when he openly expresses his respect and appreciation for you (through his words and actions), you know you’ll have a happy life with him.

That being said, while he admires your qualities (good cook, caring, social, engaged, and supportive), he should also accept your flaws (little messy, not so organized, talking a bit too much, not being on time).

He must understand and accept that no one is perfect (including him). His overall impression of you should be favorable.

4. He is master at handling conflicts between you and him

Arguments, disagreements and conflict are not only unavoidable in any relationship but they are also required ingredients for developing a strong and long-lasting intimacy.

Many couples communicate in a destructive manner, resulting in frustration, anger, and disconnection.

Many other couples avoid having meaningful conversations altogether in order to avoid fighting. Healthy communication is the foundation of any successful relationship.

One of the most important factors that contribute to a couple’s success is their ability to deal with various conflicts.

Also, to manage difficult emotions (such as disappointment, frustration, and anger), de-escalate arguments, and disagree respectfully.

A man who shares his thoughts and feelings with you without reservation. A man who talks things out with you and discusses difficult subjects with you.

Also, can disagree while still reaching some sort of resolution is a man with healthy communication skills and will make an excellent husband.

5. You can trust him without a second thought

Another important foundation of an intimate relationship is trust.

However, it is critical to recognize that being trustworthy is a proactive role that necessitates a conscious effort that is reinforced on a continuous basis by decisions and actions.

When your man does what he says, does not lie, acts assertively; and most importantly when he is consistent with these positive qualities. You know he is dependable and will become a husband you can trust.

6. He prioritizes your relationship over anything

One of the most common complaints from women is, “I don’t think he cares about me or the relationship,” or, “He works long hours or prefers to spend time with his friends rather than with me.”

Couples frequently find themselves dealing with the daily routine and necessities of life, only to discover that they are living parallel lives separated by a wide chasm. They are completely distant from one another.

To avoid this, couples must create positive shared experiences that allow them to face the mundane while also creating pleasant memories and giving them something to look forward to.

Any man you marry should understand that relationships necessitate a commitment and consistent effort/investment.

It is critical for a man not to neglect his wife. He can show interest in her life, plan date nights, and develop shared interests and activities.

When your man behaves in this manner, you know you’ve found the right person.

7. He loves spending time with you

One sign that you have a great husband is if he enjoys being near you and expresses it tenderly. He enjoys being near you no matter what you do together. 

He laughs, cracks jokes, takes your hand, strokes your hair, and makes you feel safe.

If your husband can stay at home and watch a romantic movie with you, or if he enjoys going out to eat with you, you’ve married a good man. 

However, don’t make the mistake of thinking that a good husband is simply one who enjoys romantic movies and dining out.

If your husband can stay at home and watch a romantic movie with you, or if he enjoys going out to eat with you, you’ve married a good man. 

However, don’t make the mistake of thinking that a good husband is simply one who enjoys romantic movies and dining out.

8. He wants to teach you what he knows

Another sign of a great husband is if he is willing to teach you what he knows and is patient during the process.

Your husband might not have the patience to teach you car mechanics, but he can teach you to fish or cook. 

Remember ladies, husbands can cook as well! You should appreciate it when he wants you to learn something, even if it appears that he believes you’re “not as smart” as he is in a particular craft. 

When your husband truly wants you to learn something, he shows that he is the best guy in the world. Accept his offer to teach you.

9. He is happy when he is around

Who doesn’t admire a man with a wicked sense of humor?

If your husband knows how to make you smile at the right time, if he’s cheerful despite having a bad day, and if he tells you that seeing you smile makes him happy, he’s a man you should keep. 

Because he is excited to be with you, a happy husband will laugh around you.

You might say something barely funny to him, and he’ll crack up just to make you smile. Nothing makes a great husband happier than making his wife happy.

10. He worries about you and cares for you too

You’ve won the lottery if your husband is concerned about your safety and is constantly making sure that you’re well taken care of, both physically and emotionally. 

Worrying is a sign that something is wrong. A great husband will always want to make sure his wife is safe and secure.

Some husbands were not raised to be emotionally, creatively, or romantically inclined, but that doesn’t mean they don’t care. 

TIP
If your husband wants to shield you from something, let him. Don’t resist, don’t complain and most importantly don’t think he’s underestimating you.

11. He has good communication skills 

You have a super husband if he can talk to you about anything from sports to your favorite reality show, and he listens to what you have to say and tries to understand you. 

Communication is an essential component of any marriage. Get interested if your husband wants to talk to you about his problems. 

Allow your response to convey to him that you enjoy listening to his problems and value what he has to say as well. You both want to be heard carefully.

Allow him to hear you and listen to him with all your heart.

Biblical qualities of a good husband

Are you looking for a suitable husband? What are the qualities of a good husband in the Bible? Is it his money, his looks, or his personality?

Why do so many marriages begin well only to end in divorce? How can you tell if the person you want to marry is Mr. Right before you get married?

Here are a few key characteristics to look for in a potential good husband, according to the bible.

12. He loves you genuinely

If you want to know whether your man truly loves you, you must first understand the true meaning and definition of love.

Love consists of more than just feelings. Love is more than whether he brings you flowers or not. Love is greater than the amount of money he spends on you. 

Love is more than the notes and poems he sends you. Love is more than just the physical sensation of sex.

In reality, love is a lot of work. Love is a verb. It is a “doing” word, not just a feeling. As a result, love is not only what you feel but also what you do. 

Even when there are problems and challenges in a relationship, love exists. Love is unconditional and it exists even when it is unwanted or not recognized.

13. He understands the role of husband and looks forward to accomplishes them

Is it wise for a job seeker to commit to a job without first learning about or understanding the responsibilities of that job?

Would an employee be effective in his duties if he was unaware of what was expected of him?

To be an effective husband, a man must understand what a husband is, what a husband does, and how to be a husband.

If he has this quality, then he might be the right one for you. 

14. He has future plans for you and your relationship

Do you want to marry a man who is attractive but has no plan? Do you want to marry a romantic man who lacks vision?

Many single mothers exist as a result of men who have no plan and lack the knowledge and wisdom to lead a family. 

Many children will never know their father’s identities because men did not have a plan and were too afraid to take responsibility in a relationship. 

If a man decides that he wants to be a husband and lead his family, he must exercise wisdom and have a direction and plan in order to lead his wife and children.

15. He is truly committed to you and relationship

Is he the type of man who will flee when faced with a problem or a challenge? Is he still happy to be single? Is he going to cheat on you? 

People are no longer willing to commit to a relationship which is why divorce rates are so high. People would rather split up than settle their differences. 

When they enter a relationship, spouses are self-centered– “what’s in it for me?” attitude.

A committed relationship is never easy but every relationship necessitates effort in order to succeed.

16. He is generous and kind towards you and others

A giving attitude manifests itself in a relationship.

A God-fearing man who understands that his riches are not of this world but come from God.

He finds it easier to let go of worldly possessions and is less concerned with money. He is confident that God will meet his needs and provide for him in due time.

Generosity is an essential characteristic of a godly man because anyone wants to be with someone who is a cheerful giver. Not only to me but also to others in need.

Aside from your tithes and offerings, you will come across people who require assistance.

While you are not required to give everything, we believe that giving benefits both the giver and the recipient.

A man who generously gives attracts people who enjoy giving as well. And a community like that will undoubtedly god bless you and your future family when you are in need.

17. He takes responsibility for making decisions

Being responsible is a key indicator of maturity and wisdom and is one of the most important characteristics of a godly man. 

In a relationship, there will be many situations where someone must take charge and make a decision.

A godly man should be willing to do so in accordance with his spirit. However, he must accept full responsibility for his actions (likewise also the wife).

When your boyfriend is under attack, keep a close eye on him. Is he taking responsibility for it, or does he keep blaming it on something or someone else?

If he avoids taking responsibility, keep in mind that small decisions now can lead to big and small decisions later.

Furthermore, the Bible makes it abundantly clear that we will all have to face Jesus and accept responsibility for our actions on earth at some point.

How much easier it will be to stand in front of him, fully aware of our actions both good and bad.

18. He is humble and modest 

There are numerous reasons why humility may be one of the most important characteristics of a godly man but the following may be the most important.

One common trait shared by couples in healthy relationships is the ability of both partners to set aside selfishness and consider the other’s interests and well-being as important as their own.

That is only possible if both of you are humble.

A relationship can be challenging and confronting at times, but only people who can resist the desire to always be right and who can admit their mistakes and weaknesses can resolve conflicts.

If not, the relationship can quickly become toxic.

19. He shares his thoughts and ideas with you

‘Communication is essential,’ everyone says. Nobody ever explains how to communicate effectively.

Thankfully, God does! Who better to learn from than the inventor of language?

God’s Advice: Listen more, speak less, and avoid acting in anger.

Is this a tip that your man employs in your relationship?

A man who is self-aware and able to communicate effectively will be able to express his needs and desires without becoming angry or abusive.

He will not be ruled by his emotions or his pride but by his love.

He will know how to de-escalate potential conflicts and make you feel heard. Couples must know how to communicate with each other in order to have a successful relationship.

Look for a man who treats you with dignity and acts reasonably even when he is agitated.

20. He has experience, knowledge and good judgment

The last thing you need is a man who thinks he knows everything and doesn’t need to listen to anyone, including you. This man is arrogant and blinded by his own knowledge.

You’d rather be with someone who seeks wisdom through his guidance, God’s word and a relationship with him.

That man is humble and recognizes that no matter how much he knows, he does not know everything and must love God.

Marriage qualities of a good husband

What are the characteristics of a good husband? Is it necessary for your ideal life partner to have a good job, an endless bank account, or undying love?

Whether you’re a single woman looking for the right husband or a married woman looking to inspire her husband to be a better one. 

A single man looking to be the best husband to his future wife or a married man looking to be a good husband to his wife—this is for you.

Below are some good important qualities that a man should have from a marriage point of view. 

21. He gives you space

As a husband, he must understand that his wife has a life separate from yours. She has parents, friends, and coworkers who are all a part of her life.

She may also share some of his interests or hobbies. 

A good husband doesn’t expect her to give undivided attention. And he doesn’t stop her if she wants to go out and hang out with her friends, participate in a hobby, or spend time with her parents.

He will not love you less because you don’t keep the space or but he will assist you in becoming a better version of yourself for your own benefit.

If you find a husband who possesses this quality, your marriage will undoubtedly be a happy one.

22. He is not always want to win the fight that arises between you both

Not only is this one of the qualities to look for in a husband, but it is also one of the qualities to look for in any relationship that is based on love. 

There is no getting around the fact that disagreements and miscommunication are unavoidable.

Instead of blaming each other and fighting for the sake of winning, a mature couple can solve problems and sort them out.

Look for a husband who is willing to solve the problem rather than continuing the argument in order to win.

Such a person will only try to bring you down by discouraging, blaming, and dismissing you. 

That kind of negativity does not belong in your marriage. As a result, look for a husband who possesses the qualities of not fighting to win.

23. He is supportive to your passion

Despite the fact that we live in progressive times, many men still expect their wives to play second fiddle in the marriage. 

For instance, in many marriages, it is an unspoken expectation that the woman will give up her career after the baby if the circumstances require it.

However, this does not always work in the modern era.

Your potential husband should be interested in your interests and should do everything in his power to assist you in pursuing those interests. 

Find a man who lifts you up in your field of interest rather than bringing you down.

One of the admirable qualities of a future husband is that he becomes your biggest cheerleader and encourages you to pursue your dreams and goals.

24. He is not completely dependent on you

After marriage, spouses begin to rely on each other for a variety of reasons. That is simply the natural order of events. 

However, there is a distinction between an interdependent and a codependent relationship. While the former is beneficial the latter is a sign of toxicity. 

It goes without saying that you require a spouse who does not rely on you to the point where your identity is reduced to that of his perpetual caregiver.

You should look for a husband who can live without you around all the time. He should be able to handle chores on his own. He should not be a slacker of a husband. 

When you’re busy, you shouldn’t have to worry about his meals, and you shouldn’t have to pack his bags when he has to go on a trip. 

A man who can manage his activities without your constant supervision and at ease being alone is an incredible quality that he should possess.

25. He makes you a better person 

What should you look for in a husband? This quality is as straightforward as it gets. You may know the person you’re going to marry well but does he inspire you to be a better person?

Believe us when we say that people improve after they fall in love!

It is critical to tie the knot with a man who brings out the best in you. Someone who pushes you to your limits and inspires you to do your best in everything you do.

If your prospective husband inspires you to be a better person, marry him as soon as possible.

26. He doesn’t restrict you and the relationship

Many men are extremely controlling of their wives. 

Years of patriarchal conditioning have blinded them to certain problematic behavior patterns. For example, constantly demanding to know where you are, what you’re doing, who you’re with, what you can and cannot wear, and so on. 

Unfortunately, a lot of women frequently misinterpret these restrictions as “care” for their husbands.

In the twenty-first century, qualities to look for in a husband include the ability to treat you as an equal and a true partner rather than as someone he needs to protect or save from the world. 

Women do not need to be told what to do or what not to do.

27. He is ready to compromise when it’s needed

Disagreements are an inevitable part of any relationship. It’s impossible for the two of you to agree on every decision. You may also get into disagreements due to differences in opinions. 

Arguments are natural and necessary in some ways. However, if your future husband expects you to always compromise, things will start to go downhill.

Being convinced that he does nothing wrong is not a desirable quality in a future husband.

When it comes to your needs or desires, a good husband is open-minded and willing to take the high road and compromise. 

Having said that, a healthy relationship necessitates some level of compromise on both sides.

As a result, if you believe your husband is the only one who is willing to compromise, you may need to do so as well. It makes no difference who takes the initiative to resolve an argument.

28. He is good in bed with you

There have been numerous reports of women finding their husbands to be extremely loving, caring and understanding. 

They are not completely happy in their marriage, however, because their husbands are unable to satisfy them in bed.

When deciding what qualities to look for in a husband, your sexual compatibility as a couple must be taken into account.

It is critical that you discuss sex with your potential partner openly. Because they are dissatisfied in bed, many women end up cheating on their husbands. 

To avoid infidelity from upsetting your marriage, talk to your husband about what you both expect in the bedroom. 

If the man you want to marry genuinely cares about you, he will research topics about which he is unaware and will ensure that you are sexually satisfied to the fullest.

29. He enjoys doing new things with you

You can’t expect your husband to come up with new activities for you every day but he should be eager to try new things with you. Being daring is a great quality to look for in a potential husband. 

It could be as simple as trying out a new restaurant or as ambitious as going paragliding.

Your significant other should be excited to try new things and share new experiences with you.

That is why one of the qualities to look for in a husband is a zest for life. The monotony of married life can quickly wear you down if you don’t have it.

30. You can tell about everything and anything with him

You may be frustrated with your partner but you know you can talk to him about it. This type of communication and receptivity are qualities to look for in a husband. 

If your man is the right one for you, you will be able to discuss difficult topics with him without fear of his reaction. Instead of dismissing your argument, he will listen to you and address your concerns.

This is a non-negotiable characteristic of a good husband. After all, communication is the foundation of any healthy relationship.

Any relationship can only function if there is open communication and mutual respect for each other’s viewpoints.

31. He gives you support unconditionally

Life will hit you in a variety of ways: you’ll stumble, fall, and get back up. Even when times are tough, a great husband will want to be there for you. 

If your husband is the type of person who always sees the good in life, stays positive in the face of adversity, and cheers you up when you need it then you have a gem for a husband. 

True love and support come from someone who challenges you, is there for you when you need them, and encourages you to grow as a person. 

They may appear to be the busiest or least affectionate people on the planet at times but when it comes down to it, they will drop everything for you.

32. He admits his mistakes when he did

Even the best husband makes mistakes but when he does, he doesn’t deny them. Instead, he admits he was wrong and the damage caused, also work to repair the damage he’s caused. 

Recognizing one’s mistakes is a virtue and it is the first step toward freedom, forgiveness, peace and marital success.

If he refuses to admit his mistakes, you must set a good example by admitting your own. 

If you’ve made a mistake, ask for forgiveness and tell him you’re willing to listen to him and forgive him.

Make every effort to understand him as he begins to admit his mistakes. When a man is willing to admit his flaws, his wife is the luckiest woman on the planet.

Qualities of a good husband in Islam

Muslim marriage does not happen overnight. Actually, many husbands today have been spoiled by their families, their surroundings, or even society and the media. 

This has caused us to lose the manliness and personal striving that our forefathers and great men throughout Islamic history possessed.

It is so important for every Muslim husband to work hard at their marriage in order for this Ummah to be strong again. After all, all other foundations cannot be formed without the Muslim Family foundation.

We’ve put together some habits as a personal reminder to myself first and hopefully, it can help Muslim husbands out there who want to have a happy marriage.

Take what applies to you and put it into action. So, let’s, deep dive. 

33. He dresses well with excellence

It does not imply that you must dress in opulent, high-priced attire. It indicates that your clothes are in good condition and that you appear presentable.

Muslims throughout history have been known to dress well and take care of their bodies.

During the middle ages, Muslim Spain had running water and baths, whereas the rest of Europe barely washed their hands.

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) used to smell good by wearing Musk.

As the prophet says, Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “The best type of perfume is Musk.”

Try to prioritize quality over price or quantity when shopping for Ihsan (Excellence) dressing. At the end of the day, your wife will be pleased with you and will say, “MashaAllah.”

34. He loves to read about Islam

It’s no surprise that the first word revealed to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) from the Quran was “Read..” (Surah Alaq 96:1).

Reading is an important skill to have as a Muslim Husband.

It will not only provide you with more information but it will also assist you in improving your communication and conversation skills with your wife and children. 

You’ll be able to say and teach your children a lot more interesting and important things.

If you are not reading and learning, you will be more susceptible to negative influences around you, especially in today’s age of rapidly changing media and technology.

35. He helps out in cleaning home and other house chores

Today’s wives have more responsibilities than ever before. Working full-time, cooking, cleaning, and caring for her children are all part of her daily schedule.

Your wife will be overjoyed if you can relieve her of some of the burdens.

Dishes should be washed, vacuuming should be done and other household chores should be done on a regular basis. Complete them before being asked.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), the best of creation, lent a hand around the house.

“Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) used to patch his sandals, sew his garment, and conduct himself at home as anyone of you does in his house,” Aisha (Ra), Muhammad’s wife, said. 

He was a normal human being, looking for lice on his clothes, milking his sheep, and doing his own laundry.” 

36. He reads Quran regularly

A Muslim husband is the father figure in his family. He should be a role model for his wife and children. That is why it is critical for him to read the Quran.

Children imitate what they see. If they see their good father reading the Quran, they will want to read it themselves.

This may even encourage children to look forward to the dreaded Sunday Quran school.

Praying together is an important part of a Muslim household, and knowing the Quran will aid you in leading your wife and family.

Husbands or fathers who are Muslim should work hard.

At least once a day if not more, the Muslim husband or good dad should lead the members of his household in prayer.

37. He is good at expressing adverse or disapproving judgements

As the saying goes, “Small people talk about other people, average people talk about things, great people talk about ideas.”

A Muslim husband must mature beyond self-interest and be able to transcend petty talk about people in his life and material possessions. He needs to start discussing concepts.

It all comes down to the fact that a Muslim husband’s role in the family is to lead. His family will suffer if all he talks about is how much he despises his boss at work or his new pair of shoes.

Prior to getting married, it was easy for me to blend in with my friends and enjoy trivial pursuits such as movies and sports. 

However, I knew I needed to rise above these pursuits and begin reading and learning more about the ideas and principles that govern how our world operates. I needed to broaden my horizons.

38. He has the quality of being morally right or justifiable

Allah mentioned this distinguishing trait — As-Salihoon in the verse quoted above. These are Allah’s faithful and pious servants. They are only interested in their Lord’s pleasure. 

It’s a unique quality of a good husband that you won’t find in a scumbag.

Piety will cause a man to treat and render his wife fairly and to remember that he is responsible for her upkeep before Allah. 

It is this virtue that will keep a woman humble and submissive to her husband’s will in order for her Lord to be pleased.

If there’s one thing you shouldn’t give up, it’s this. Righteous spouses are more likely to raise righteous children and improve communities.

39. He feels you attractive (something that makes your heart skip a beat)

‘Competence, beauty, and contact lenses are in the eyes of the beholder. Doesn’t that sound sarcastic? However, it is a simple truth. 

On the other hand, no one wants to marry someone who is unattractive. While attraction is subjective to how individuals define it. 

It’s a quality that Rasul emphasized a lot. According to Jaabir ibn ‘Abd-Allaah, Allah’s Messenger said: ‘If one of you proposes marriage to a woman, if he can look at her and see something that will encourage him to marry her, then let him do so.’

As a result, find something that makes your heart skip a beat whenever you see your spouse.

40. He has a great character

As a Muslim, uprightness in character is synonymous with submission to Allah. Being a Muslim is inextricably linked to having good character.

This has been over-emphasized in a number of Messenger’s ahadith. 

One of them was based on Abu Hurayrah’s authority: ‘Among the Muslims, the most perfect in terms of his faith is the one whose character is excellent,’ said the Prophet. 

Those who treat their wives well are the best among you.’ (Muslim). A man of good character takes care of and loves his wife.

In the same way, a woman with good morals will get along with her in-laws.

41. He is friendly and shows mercy

Gentle touch and kind words are frequently required by women. Allah gave Adam a companion, not a smartphone when he created him.

One of the most beautiful aspects of marriage is seeing yourself as your best friend and confidant. 

You need someone who can make you smile, regardless of their age or background. Allah’s Messenger and his wife Aisha used to race.

You should look for the kind of man who isn’t only interested in satisfying his stomach and canal. 

The better half will be treated with kindness and mercy by a good spouse. 

Qualities of a good Christian husband

Did you know that there is a distinction between a good man and a godly man?

So, what’s the difference?

A good man makes sound decisions, is nice, and loves you on a worldly scale. A godly husband makes wise decisions, is kind, and loves you according to God’s standards.

While both of these men can be great boyfriends, fiancés, and husbands, knowing the difference between a godly man and a worldly man is essential if you want to date with purpose.

When looking for a long-term partner, you should ensure that he shares your faith and convictions.

And to assist you in identifying a God-fearing man, we’ve compiled a list of ten characteristics of godly men.

42. He keeps his promises he did

“In the long run, taking the Bible seriously will prove to be the best dating guide.”

“Her husband’s heart trusts in her,” verse 11 says. He is unconcerned about her loyalty to him. He never has to worry about her spending their money in unethical or foolish ways.

Consider whether someone who could be a potential spouse is honest and trustworthy as you get to know them.

Does he have a track record of keeping his promises? If so, then he is the one.

43. He makes you stronger

“She does him good and not harm all the days of her life,” says verse 12. “When he sits among the elders of the land, her husband is known in the gates.” 

It’s odd that there’s a verse about the husband right in the middle of this passage about the woman who fears the Lord.

However, it does make a point about the devotion of a wife to her husband. 

Her domestic work and service to her husband contribute to his success and reputation. Because he is married to her, he is a better man.

Look for someone to marry who will support you and work alongside you in a complementary way. A married couple should be stronger than they would be on their own.

44. He is hard-working

13–16th verses:

“She looks for flax and wool, and she works with eager hands. She is similar to merchant ships in that she transports her food from afar.

She gets up in the middle of the night and feeds her. She considers a field and purchases it, also she then plants a vineyard with the fruit of her labor.”

Look for someone who is self-disciplined and conscientious who sets goals and works toward them and who starts and completes projects.

45. He is a generous and welcoming person

“She opens her hand to the poor and reaches out her hands to the needy,” says Verse 20.

This woman considers her family’s needs, but she also considers the needs of those around her. She is generous, welcoming, and helpful.

46. He is wise and eager to help others

“Does this person have a fear of the Lord?” Is this person a follower of Christ? Don’t budge on this point.”

“She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue,” says Verse 26. 

She seeks ways to assist others – physically, emotionally, and spiritually. She is a wise woman, and others will seek her advice and benefit from it.

You want to marry someone like that — someone who isn’t preoccupied with his own selfish activities and amusements, but who enjoys helping others and has the wisdom to be truly helpful.

47. He has faith in Jesus 

She is not troubled by worry because she trusts in her Lord. “She laughs at the time to come,” says Verse 25.

This woman fears God and wisdom, kindness, and hard workflow from such healthy fear. 

The godly and virtuous men and women will have faith in God and his providential plans for her. As a result, she won’t be preoccupied with worrying about the details of the future.

This question gets to the heart of what you should look for in a spouse: does this person fear the Lord?

Is this person a follower of Christ? Don’t budge on this point. Don’t get “unequally yoked” with someone who doesn’t share your most fundamental identity (2 Corinthians 6:14). 

Christ must be the foundation of your relationship with both of you looking to him, trusting in him, and laughing together about what lies ahead.

When your husband maintains consistent self-control, it means that he will think about you before making any decision.

He will be a more generous lover and avoid engaging in harmful pornographic behaviors.

Moreover, he avoids flirting with other women or acting inappropriately with them and continue to be loyal

Finding a good match who can be silly and make you laugh while still being emotionally mature is one of the sweetest qualities of a good husband.

What exactly is emotional maturity? He is a man who can control his emotions no matter what is going on. Even in a stressful situation, he knows how to keep his cool. 

Moreover, when he is wrong, he admits it and apologizes. He takes steps to better understand you if you are mad at him.

52. He teaches you new things

Personal development is high on the list of characteristics of a good husband.

A husband who can teach you new things will make you happier.

According to the findings of the study, couples who engaged in exciting activities had higher levels of marital satisfaction than those who engaged in ‘pleasant’ activities.

53. He knows how to end conflict or fight

If you’re a man reading this article looking for advice on how to be a better husband to your wife, you can begin by learning healthy conflict resolution techniques.

Healthy conflict resolution entails attacking the problem as a group rather than attacking each other during an argument.

When it comes to problem-solving, listening is just as important as speaking, so know when to speak and when to listen to your partner.

Do not use an argument as an excuse to be mean or to point out past wrongdoing to your spouse. Instead, practice connecting with your emotions and talking about what is bothering you.

54. He keeps your relationship a priority

Have you ever been with a man who would rather drink with his buddies on a Friday night than spend romantic time with you? This undoubtedly made you feel unappreciated.

A true man is someone who prioritizes your relationship no matter what.

When he has free time, he prefers to spend it with you. When it comes to making decisions, he consults with you respectfully.

All of these are characteristics of a good husband!

Set boundaries in your relationship. While getting advice on specific situations can be beneficial, don’t over-communicate. 

Years of dealing with the family have taught him how to deal with distractions.

He can talk openly with his wife and other members of the family without disclosing everything that happens in the home. 

He understands his line of respect well enough not to disrespect the home. And how to keep the family together by expressing love and spending quality time together.

56. He is easy to be with and you feel the chemistry

You’ve probably heard couples talk about how they just “clicked,” a phenomenon that’s often attributed to two people’s chemistry. 

As aspirational as it may sound, it does not have to be the case in your case. In fact, you should take care not to be constantly on edge around him.

You don’t have to go out of your way to make him happy.

One of the most attractive characteristics of a potential husband is that he is also your best friend.

You can talk to him about anything, make different jokes, and when things get a little rough, you should be able to sail through them relatively easily. 

Making concerted efforts to avoid turning minor squabbles into daily battles which are tiring, is one of the best qualities you can find in a husband.

That’s why it’s ranked so high on this list of qualities to look for in a spouse.

Recognizing that you have needs as a separate human being and being kind to those needs is an important quality in a good husband.

Your prospective husband should also be kind to strangers, children, the elderly, and animals.

If he feeds stray animals, donates to charity, or is generally kind to those around him, you’ve struck gold with an amazing husband.

58. He has good sense of humor

And if you find your husband render jokes like, “My wife belongs in the kitchen,” or “My wife and her friends are always gossiping,” you should block that man out of your life.

59. Everyday is a new learning for him and he loves to learn new things

You and your future husband may work in different places or have different skill sets altogether.

If you are unable to share these skill sets with each other, your marriage may become very boring. 

That is why among the qualities to look for in a husband are a willingness to learn from you and the ability to inspire.
