Unconditional love and support is required for a successful marriage. It’s important that you be a team and have each other’s backs, even after the “newness” of marriage wears off. Forever is a long time!

Style caster has come up with 10 qualities to look for before you walk down the aisle. See if you agree with these.

  1. A sense of humor. Laughter is important. It’s great medicine, especially during tough times. A man who can make you laugh but doesn’t make you the butt of his jokes will help lighten your mood when you are feeling down.
  2. A backbone. There is something incredibly attractive about a man who will stand his ground when faced with opposition. Loyalty is an important virtue. And if a man can stand and not waver on his morals and integrity, he will likely continue standing strong with you.
  3. Kindness. While some women seek out bad boys to possibly add excitement or to irritate their parents, having someone who doesn’t treat you well is going to make you miserable over a long period of time. A man who you can depend on for kindness will feel like home.
  4. Generosity. This has nothing to do with money. This is about personality. A man who is generous with his time and feelings will make you feel enveloped in his love.
  5. Confidence. Neediness and insecurity aren’t very attractive. And they can wear you down over years. A man who is confident and sure of himself will make you feel that way too.
  6. Modesty. This goes hand in hand with confidence. It’s important to be confident, but not arrogant. Arrogance and boastfulness can destroy a relationship.
  7. Affection. A man who will show you a little affection in public is proud to be with you. And touch is incredibly powerful to a relationship.
  8. Intelligence. He needs to be able to keep up with your conversations. An intelligent man can also challenge you to be a better person and help you look at things from different perspectives. Stimulating conversation never gets old.
  9. Chivalry. Politeness is always in fashion. And if he treats you right, it means he was likely raised right and will follow the good example that was set for him.
  10. Cleanliness. You do not want to play maid to a perpetual slob.
