It's honestly a struggle for women to find a man who will fit into the bracket of being the perfect husband.
Obviously, it works both ways but since we love writing for men, let us tell you that women, inevitably, when they start dating you, skim through your qualities so that you fit the relationship quotient.
Apart from being charismatic, confident and good in bed, there are numerous other qualities you should possess to make a good husband to a woman who deserves your effort.
Mostly, we all are under the misconception that women and men alike date partners that are different from the partners they chose when they want to get married. While it may be true in some cases, most cases, we believe, you'd want that constancy in your life of having to wake to the same person every day.
So, if you're a man looking to finally plunge into the marriageable route, you need to be ready for that and have certain qualities that make women want to get married too, to gravitate towards you.
Here are 5 essential qualities you should possess in order to make a good husband:(1) Be There For Her Even When It's Inconvenient For You
Yes, I know you'd ask that why do you have to be there all the time and that you too have a life that's equally important. Some may even counter saying she likes her independence so why do you need to bend over backwards to do things for her.
But you see, partnerships require compromise and sacrifice and you're not choosing to date her but spend your life with her.
There are times when she may fall weak. Like when she's having a baby with you or when she's going through menopause. You can't leave her in these tough times and venture off thinking you have a life of your own.
You have bigger responsibilities towards your partner now and it's good to start displaying them when you're in a relationship with her, in order for her to know, you'll be around through thick and thin.

Maybe when you're dating someone you can count their flaws and tell them to make correctives. But if you're seriously considering spending your life with someone and hoping they see you the same way, then you need to accept their flaws and accept who and what they are.
If you want to address them so the person knows a few things are unruly, then you should do that. But make sure you do it without making her feel guilty that she has flaws in the first place.
She shouldn't be hiding her true self from you because she thinks you may not accept her. Make your acceptance of her as an important person in your life, from the start.

You can be enamoured by her, profess all your love towards her but if you're not responsible, there is no way she's ever going to consider marrying you.
She sees responsibility as an inevitable bargain between two people in a relationship. It gives her direction towards the future. If you show her you're a responsible human being, she will want to pursue the idea of you, in her future.
For her, responsibility from you goes synonymously with nurturing and taking care of the children you may want to have, of the future you two hold and other important aspects in a marriage.
So, it's time you pull up your socks and gather a sense of being responsible, not just for you, but for her too.

Communication can get tough sometimes when you need to open up about yourself, but in a relationship which is serious, that's something which should be involuntary.
If you don't open up and communicate your hopes, fears and dreams then the relationship is quite superficial. Sometimes the best people move away because there isn't any communication between them.
If you and she have trouble opening up about things and healthily communicating, maybe find ways to do so more effectively. Communication is the key to a good and harmonious relationship.

Men always tend to lean toward infidelity. There isn't an established reason for it yet, but somewhere down the line, cheating becomes inevitable. It's not blaming or something to pinpoint. It's a fact and if you think one woman is never enough for you, you probably need to either communicate that with your partner or move away.
You can even see if you want to be in an open relationship/marriage with her, in case you do want her in your life but can't trust yourself enough. That way, you're honest to her about things. But make sure the decision to do that is mutual. Most marriages break because of infidelity and if you're someone who cheats, it's good to spell it out way before.
Making these characteristic changes is not easy, I agree, but sometimes things need to be mended to make space for newer, better things.
If you feel you're someone who can change to adapt and bring in a truer sense of companionship to your life, then try and make these changes and one day you will make a great husband to someone!
