Peaches was asking about one ideals look-wise, what about quality-wise? I have this incident to share with you. I was in taxi one day and then the driver asked me if I was married or not (it's normal here in Egypt that strangers interfere in your personal life). He said of course you want the rich man like all women of today. So I said, well, not really. So he then asked me what are the most important qualities for a good husband? So I said someone who is good to me, someone who has principles/ethics and someone who doesn’t have serious bad habits, e.g. womanizer, alcoholic, gambler, etc.. He didn’t agree with me. He said a woman can change the man’s habits, a woman can make a bad man a good one and a good one a bad one. So I asked him his opinion about the important qualities one should make sure his man has. So he said a good man for marriage has to have two qualities which are generosity and independence. If he’s generous he’ll always give you love and if he’s independent he won’t listen to his mom when she goes against you and he’ll always stand up for you. What do you think are the most important qualities to look for in a man/woman if you want a long term relationship/marriage/start a family? I kind of agree with the taxi driver reagrding generousity and independence, but I don't believe that a woman/man can change a man/woman. What are your experiences?
