-A number of factors usually come to play when a man is looking for wife
- These factors include age, education, profession, money, children, and family
- But the truth is that opinions may differ when it comes to matters marriage
At certain point in life, a man is expected to get married and start a family. Your parents will most likely be on your case when they feel that you are not giving this matter the level of seriousness it deserves.
Some parents would go to the extent of finding you a woman they think can make good wife for their son. Others will give you long speech on why you should not propose to your present lover.
As parents, they mean well for us. But at the end of the day, the decision rests with you. How will you proceed? Would you let your parents decide for you who to marry?
As you ponder over that weighty question, let’s see which professions are likely to produce great wife materials and why.

Nurses are generally caring people. They are trained to care and it is their job to care. So chances are that they also make good wives.
Also, as health professions, they understand the risks of having an affair with more than one partner. Therefore, they are mostly likely faithful people. You will be safer with nurse as your wife, and mama will be really proud.
When it comes to teachers, you should consider primary school teachers. Not secondary school teachers, and probably not a lecturer or professor.
Primary school teachers deal with children on daily basis. They love kids and most certainly will never leave your children at home alone watching adult content as they go out clubbing.
The issue with MOST secondary school teachers is that they already have too much to deal with. If you think handling teens and adolescents is easy, just ask them. And with that in mind, your manly needs may not be sufficiently attended to back home.
Also, primary school teachers don’t make a lot in terms of earnings. That means you are most likely going to be making much more than them.
The thing is, no right-thinking man wants to marry woman who earns more than him. In a way it challenges his authority as head of the family. But again, opinions differ on these matters.
3. Ladies of the night
Who would have thought that ‘ladies of the night’ can actually make good wives? If you ask this writer, he doesn’t think they are wife materials, and for obvious reasons – such as the kind of morals and values they will inculcate in your children, and the health risks.
Strangely, there are people out there who consider the ladies of the night to be great wife materials, controversially so. It all boils down to cash and fun in bed. Proponents of this clause insist that cash and ‘bedroom satisfaction’ are the cornerstone of every strong marriage.
But as you already know, ladies of the night are not meant to be with you alone. They have clients who are looking for 'services'. Your mama will certainly not be happy if she finds out about her.
4. Maids (a.k.a Mbochs)
Married men, please keep your hands off mbochs! Just kidding guys, your hands can stay where they are!
But come to think of it, why would a married man dump his ‘hot like pepper’ wife only to marry a maid? It’s because maids can make good wives. It’s that simple.
However, cheating in marriage is not allowed, that is, if you want it to last forever.
5. Female Chefs/Caterers/Cooks
The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. This old proverb has not lost its meaning. Traditionally, a woman must know how to cook for her husband.
Yes, things may have changed, as now some women expect their husbands to cook for them, but the traditional African men still expect their wives to be good cooks, which brings us to chefs.
As professional cooks, female chefs can be potential wife materials.
Your mama will be watching!
