Lots of marriages fail these days as a result
of the unrealistic goals and expectations
that couples set before marriage. Many
people venture into marriage for the wrong
reasons; some cannot even say why they are
in it.
Ladies most times are to be blamed here;
they always seem to have certain standards
the men are expected to meet before they
agree to marry them. They keep chasing
vague things and pay little or no attention to
important matters. Many women get married
because of the pressure placed on them by
their family members or the society.
Some of them feel the need to get married
because their mates are doing it and they
want the man they would end up with to fit
some fictional characters in their heads.
These wrong choices or criteria often make
them fall into the wrong hands and ruin their
chances of being happy.
Find below some of the weird things ladies
check in men before marrying them:
1. Height
This is the first thing a woman is likely to
say when you ask her about the things she
desires in a man. Every woman wants men
that are tall. No one wants a short man.
Some women would even say they cannot
date men that are taller than they. Thus,
when they meet men who are tall and have
one or two traits that fit their vague qualities,
they tune in and fall in love with them.
2. Well-furnished apartment
Ladies do not want to settle for less now
when they are planning for marriage. Every
woman wants a man who is successful and
has different properties to show with it. Men
who have their own houses are presumed to
be better than men who don’t.
These houses have to be furnished to taste
and classy for the women to fit into them. If
a man does not have this or something close
enough, some women would not agree to
marry them.
3. Wealth
Every woman wants a man that can see to
her financial needs. Money is important to a
lot of women out there and they would not
settle down with men who are struggling
Men who cannot meet their needs may not
even make the list of suitors they would be
considering. It does not matter whether the
man has some hidden demons as long as he
has enough money in his account.
4. Cars
Now, it would amaze you to discover that
some ladies would not date men who do not
have a car. As soon as you approach them
on with your ‘ leggedbenz ’ and they do not
see you holding a car key, it is a no-no.
Some ladies love comfort and would not
trade anything for it. Before you stand a
chance to talk to them at all, your
appearance has to speak a ton about you.
5. Romance
Some ladies simply love it when they meet
guys who are romantic; they love men who
would read lines of poems to them and make
them feel like princesses. They enjoy the
attention they get from men like these and
would immediately fall for their gentle and
romantic gestures.
As far as some of these women are
concerned, the men’s ability to show love
and care while being romantic is more than
6. Citizenship
As soon as some ladies get to know the guys
asking them out are not Nigerians or they
have dual citizenship, love happens. Ladies
love the concept of marrying foreigners or
men who would give them the fair chance of
stepping outside the shores of this country.
You would be shocked to discover that some
ladies would be willing to marry some men
as soon as they know they have passports to
other countries.
7. Presence of six packs
Women certainly love men who are physically
fit; they believe guys that are well-built are
manly and would be able to perform better
than men who are not. The presence of six
packs would make some of the ladies melt
and get wet on the spot. They would always
choose a man with a firm body over a man
with a pot belly.
8. Sexual performance
Women no doubt love men whose strength in
bed can be likened to that of a stallion; they
love men who can drive them to different
peaks of desire when it comes to sexual
Knowing fully well that many women end up
cheating in marriage as a result of sex, they
would rather go for men who would make
them go wild with desire and leave their
bodies limp after being satisfied.
9. Occupation
Many ladies want to get married to men who
have good jobs. They will always ask about
the men’s place of work within the first few
minutes they meet and would use the details
to map out their plans about them. Men who
work in oil and gas companies are seen as
better suitors as compared to those who
In the same light, bankers are preferred to
mechanics. Women love the idea of being
known with men who have good jobs in the
10. Talent and fame
Some ladies want to marry men who are
talented and famous. It is highly ridiculous
finding women who are ready to spend the
rest of their lives with certain men because of
the talents the men have and how famous
they have become.
Therefore, it is not strange when you see
some women who have dreams of getting
married to some artistes and public figures
they do not know personally. As long as they
have talents they like, then getting married to
them is no big deal.
