    A good wife should always allow the husbands to speak and create an atmosphere to talk everything.

    Behind every successful man, there is a woman.
    So I feel ideal wife should understand your feelings, support for your growth, do constructive critics, respect your opinions, and most importantly she should feel that you are her life.

    But True love comes with no expectations, Love your wife with true heart, you can experience all the above qualities in her.

    Be both his wife AND his best friend, where he feels comfortable talking to you about anything. Remember-this is who you are supposed to be sharing your life with forever...You had better actually LIKE each other as well! Treat him with patience, loyalty, be ready at times to give more than 50-50 (goes both ways) and don't jump his butt the minute he walks in the door. Give him some time to wind down. Do for him what you would want him to do for you.

    A good wife should not be talkative, and should know when to speak and when to shut up !

    A good wife should be a helper to her husband and not a source of worry for him a good wife is a form of a shock absorber to her husband, most importantly if they are christians the good wife is the prayer pillar of the home, covering the household in continuous prayers. She should be a good cook,be and keep the home neat,be industrious,diligent quick to forgive and have good listening ears. Above all shoul have good fear of God.

    As one who is yet unmarried, I look for certain qualities in a potential wife. Of course beauty is attractive, but it is far from being the most important aspect of a person. The ability to think, the ability to care, and the ability to find the humor in life are things that I value. Self confidence greatly magnifies the attractiveness of these qualities. Essentially then, I seek someone with a legitimate personality who is unafraid to share it, but also willing to allow other's personalities to exist as well. I am reluctant to make a "hit-list" of things the "perfect girl" for me would have, since it will undoubtedly fail to describe she whom I end up with. But in a nutshell, these are, for me, the qualities of a good wife.

    what are the qualities of a good wife???

    a good wife needs to be understanding, compassionate, loving, respectful, passionate, exciting, sexy, demure, kind.  a good wife needs to be able to give her man the space he needs and craves and still be right there by his side when he needs her to be there.

    Able to share and support the husband's dreams/aspiration. Loving, best friends and loyalty. Off course the same is expected of the husband too. In this way there will be harmony, like the Ying & Yang.

    I completely agree with Laura Thykeson and as a man I try to be this kind of partner to my wife.

    As a result we have a really good relationship and she really is my best friend.

    She's hard working, attentive, a wonderful mother to our children and we work well together.

    I intend to give her her every hearts desire if it is in my power because she is absolutely worthy.

    Friend, partner,lover, wife.

    My wife is the Queen because she is the servant of our children and then her King.

    I am the King because I am the servant of our children and my Queen.

    Life Is Good. wink

    I agree they should be a best friend you can share things with and be happy and trust will all your heart. Nice surprises are appreciated as well but if they are a best friend then that will be there too.

    The qualities of a good Wife mirror the good qualities of her Husband

    A good wife is one that can make the most of a marriage. I don't think there's one cookie-cutter word like "trustworthy or loyal or compassionate" that can begin to define a good wife.

    The key to a happy marriage is fun.

    A good wife knows how to have fun WITH her husband and her family. If you can't have fun with your family, then the family will not communicate as well, they will not spend as much time together, they will not want to be with each other as much.  Yes, there will be bad times, but if a wife (or a husband) can make the good time more fun, then the family will remember the good times more than the bad times.

    I think that's why so many people end up in therapy - they only have memories of the bad times, the disappointments, the let-downs, the tragedies - not the good times.

    If I had it to do all over again, I would stress less about paying bills and getting to work on time - and more about how I can make today the best day ever for my family.  I think a good wife would do the same.

    A good wife is one who loves her husband in spite of his boneheaded ways.

    Give your best you can give the best that you can every day. Be true to who you are the most that you can every day. Look forward to eachother each day. Try hard to bring out the best  in one another the best you know how to and learn how to your not sure. Spend less time commenting and more time exploring. 80% of communication is non verbal use that to your benefit. Try to structure your schedules so that they work for both of you and everything that you do with your partner make sure it compliments both of your career and pleasures. Travel when and where you can. Throw away all of the things that do you no good if you know what I mean. Clear your closets and keep things neat so you can keep up with activities of daily living. Relax and eat as healthy as you can. Because it takes more energy to fight then to get along surely dont do it at all. Just work as a team. Do you know how a team works out to win? They just work out physically and mentally and those are the winners. If you have children keep in mind the wonderful addition it is to your relationship and do not replace it for your relationship. Be excited about something and look forward to it every day and when you are happy and excited about your life, you better believe that your partner will be too. Have a fun day today. Lanea

    Loving, caring, trustworthy, compassionate, respectful, supportive and I should be attracted to her and vice versa. We're all spirit beings in amazingly creative biochemistry outfits (bodies) that need love from each other. We should LOVE TOUCHING EACH OTHER. lol. But really she should also be a woman who can see my bad points and kindly address them in private to me  and who can accept constructed but respectful and loving criticism herself. The woman of my dreams doesn't have to be an American. She's just got to be 100% woman to me. O YEAH! (AND I DEEPLY THANK GOD FOR WOMEN, What would the world be without them)........ lifeless........I won't even get into that. As long as she is those things, I'm in heaven on earth with my queen.

    Looking you in the eyes everyday and being sincere about everything you say to your husband. Honesty, humor, effort, hugs and kisses, go a long way. Respecting your husbands space and time. But with all that, the same goes for a good husband.

    For me, every other "quality" is the duty of the man to nurture and discover. The only quality a woman needs is to fear God and respect her husband in EVERYTHING! Any woman with this attribute makes a good wife anytime, anyday!
