Not the Marrying Kind
by Connie H. Deutsch
There must be something in the genetic makeup of women that makes a woman think she can change a man and make him into a wonderful husband.
If a man says he's not the marrying kind, believe him. You may get him to change his mind about marrying you but chances are you won't be happy with what you get.
You may get someone who is emotionally unavailable even if he is physically present. You may get someone who is so resentful of being trapped in a marriage he didn't want that he may feel justified for cheating on you. You may get a man who is more devoted to his family and friends than he is to you and who leaves you alone whenever one of them calls him for a night out.
The most sensible approach would be for a woman to marry a man she doesn't want to change, who is absolutely fine with the way he is, but most women seem to have been born with a "fixit" gene. Every man she meets would be perfect if only he would just change this or "fix" that about himself.
Men frequently try to change a woman after they get married but women seem to target the changes they want to make before they get married.
I once heard a woman say that she thought this man was very intelligent, kind, charming, interesting, and an all around nice guy and if he lost about thirty pounds she could really be interested in him.
My first thought, preceded and followed by a lot of other first thoughts, was what if you were already married and he gained thirty pounds in his first year of marriage to you. Would you divorce him and look for someone new who was thirty pounds lighter?
I can understand there being no chemistry between two people; the necessary spark that is needed to get them from their first hello to getting into bed. What I can't understand is being interested in someone "if only" such and such were fixed or changed.
Men seem to go through a reverse process. They can fall head over heels in love with a woman and then try to mold her into a woman he can love or a woman who will fit into his lifestyle. When those changes are forced on her, resentment is sure to follow.
But the hardest thing to wrestle with is the feeling of not being good enough or Mr. Wonderful wouldn't be telling you that he's not the marrying kind. Don't try to fix him or change him; it's simply not worth it. You will always be left feeling (or hearing him tell you) that you trapped him into marriage.
There are three stages of this mating game. The first stage consists of the bloom of falling in love, that glorious feeling as if you are walking on air and all is well in the world. This would be the time where both genders have blinders on their eyes and they don't want to see the red flags that are waving frantically in their faces. They don't even think about changing one another.
From there it moves into the second stage, the one that gives you that sense of comfort you derive from being in love, but not quite being head over heels in love. And then, if you're very lucky, it moves into the permanent stage of loving, of knowing you are loved as much as you love.
Of course, the ideal situation is for a couple to experience all three stages. Unfortunately, too many people only experience the first stage and part of the second stage. After that, their minor flaws become glaring imperfections and if they stay in the relationship, they only make each other miserable. Still, some of the people who never make it past the middle of the second stage of the mating game do get married and, predictably, make each other miserable.
Sometimes it seems as if the mating game is a game of musical chairs where the men and women keep changing partners in their quest for the fairy tale ending. And only sometimes does a person choose the right chair and the right partner.

What Kind of Women Do Men Want to Marry? Here Are the Things Every Woman Must KnowAuthor: Krista Hiles
It is difficult to list down what are the traits in a woman that a guy looks for when he thinks for marriage. After all it is a decision based on personal choice and no two people want the exact same thing. But here are a few things that men look for in a woman.
One who looks after herself
Men prefer to marry women who take care of their appearance without going overboard. While a freshly turned out Stepford wife might not be what they desire, all men definitely want their women to look good for them. The slobs have a hard time fitting the bill.
A woman who values independence
The days of the homemaker are over, Today's man finds the independent minded career driven woman attractive enough to marry. Men too are willing to make adjustments in their lives to accommodate late nights and business trips. An independent woman makes them want to do better.
A woman in tune with her feminine side
Despite being the career diva who burns down the board room a man will only want to marry her if she has a feminine side to her. He doesn't want her servility but wants her to care about him and all that's important to him. He does want her to be nurturing.
A woman with a friendly nature
A man doesn't find a woman the 'marrying kind' if she doesn't have a friendly bone in her body. Family and friends are just as important to men as to women and they want a wife to be able to accept them as her own.
A non judgmental woman
While a man wants a woman who is honest to goodness, being judgmental, uptight and too opinionated isn't going to take you up the aisle. You have to have a mind of your own but you cannot impose your decisions on someone.
A woman who is willing to listen
Men would like to marry only those women who have the patience to listen to them. Men hear a lot of banter about girlfriends, mothers, friends friend's, friends mothers etc. But at the same time they would like the woman they are with to listen to them as well.
A woman who understands the concept of space
Men marry those women who understand the need and the value of personal space. If a woman is clingy then the chances of her finding a groom are slim as men generally don't like being joined at the hip. They want a woman who wants space and gets his need for his space.
