In your opinion, what do you think makes a good wife/husband in todays world...specifically American Society/.
My mother always told me that a good husband is like a good used car: reliable, dependable, works, doesn't require a lot of expensive or complicated maintenance, and is just boring enough that nobody wants to steal him/it.
I love your mother's definition of a good husband. I tell my son this about a potential future wife: she doesn't have to be a knockout, (she should take good care of herself though), she should be kind and respectful, and easy going, fun to be with, and sincere.
One man's meat is another's poison. One man likes a good, quiet and obedient housewife, another, a wild rocker to party qith him.
I have only been married four times so I'm not really qualified to answer this.
married four times? You're sooo over-qualified to answer this question, Diogenes.
Lemme try... I was married for 26 years and I was a perfect spouse... good, quiet, obedient, supportive, loving, caring, attentive, plus I was sexy to boot. My husband would verify this, but sadly, he died on me. Couldn't he just ask for a divorce? :
LOL @ Diogenes and Rosie. @Kimberlslyrics, a good listener is a great characteristic but some people might take creative loving to some other level lol! @Greek One, idk wat to say about those characteristics lol.
To let you be what you want to be.cheers you on on your crazy dreams. Don't control you like he owns you.always be kind and considerate to you. In my 28 years of marriage, the most that i was told by my husband was, go away from me, lol. Never a nasty or demeaning word. That means a lot to me. I would be running as fast as i can if i had been thrown with bad demeaning words.
Somebody who doesn't necessarily agree with you but respects your right to your own opinion. Somebody who doesn't judge, yell, hit, isolate, bully, or withhold necessities from you.
Somebody who listens and responds with relevant, helpful, encouraging, funny, or serious replies.
Somebody who cherishes your friendship above everything else in the relationship and shows it by considering your feelings before doing or saying anything. That's not to say that they won't do or say what they want or need to but they will be considerate in their delivery and avoid hurting you at all costs.
A good spouse is respectful of your wishes and opinions, wants to meet your needs when he/she can, and will sit down and talk thing out calmly when things aren't going well.
One should be willing to cook and the other one to do the dishes. Kidding aside, a trait on knowing how to give and take may work best for the couple.
In my opinion, an ideal spouse is who listen well, give respect, care and dont harm ones feelings. Spouse should make decisions with partner's concern and dont waste time in small things.

Why do so many marriages end in divorceI am curious to hear from those who have gone through a divorce themselves. Why did you divorce your spouse? Why did your spouse divorce you? Do you even know? If the desire for divorce was one-sided, do you as the divorced spouse...

I have done 5 surveys and everyone says that they think 3 is average but then I find out that the real average is twice a month. So if you can answer the question that would be great, not how much you think but how much you are!
