Even as we give it a go ahead into the institution of marriage on grounds of the healthy relationship, it’s obvious to hear a man talk of a lady being a wife material. This brings about the seriousness of it all when a man breaks up with his girlfriend on grounds that she is not a wife material. It’s hard to just assume everything but it really shows that there are men out there who are very cautious of this wife material thing.
By the look at what men are really after, I think there are some things that I guess I know of who is a wife material or not. First, a drunkard is not a wife material. By this I mean that a lady who has had the habit of drinking alcohol may not be a good choice for a wife. This is because possibilities of such a woman not taking up the role of wife are very high because this is a habit that she cannot overcome.
Then most men look for their mothers in this woman. This means having spent the better part of their lives with their mothers, they know what to expect because they have seen the roles of their mothers in the family and in particular their roles to the father.
The something else, a woman who cannot cook is definitely not a wife material. I have heard of situations where a newlywed wife cannot even cook a simple meal of ugali and is first sent back to her parents to learn how to cook. It may be that we may boast of belonging to a generation that has money to get things done but learning the basics is a good thing.
I have just listed a few things that relate to this wife material is but the truth is we cannot ignore this term. This is because quite a number of men fall back into using it thus showing it after all means a lot as far as marriage is concerned.
