How to Know She’s Wifey Material: 9 Clues You Should’t Miss

Amina Lawal Mangal Wedding


Marrying has never been the difficult part, but finding ‘the one’ – the right one is. Men are often caught up in a tight dilemma when deciding whom to settle down with. Often time, they are beclouded by what she looks like and majorly fail out on nailing a keeper.

The question really is….what are you looking for? Are you looking for a trophy chick to hang on your hand or to make you feel good when you hang with the guys? Or are you looking for a “wife!” – Someone to build a legacy with. If a wife is what you’re looking for, these 9 clues adapted from will help you nail in on the right one.

1. She spends more time in supporting your vision and aligning yours to hers. It shows she has your best interest at heart, most importantly, she has your back.

2. She is ever ready to tell you the slightest thing that happens to her and allows you to handle it. Shows she is not secretive and respects your views.

3. She spends time developing her mind and rates value more than love. Shows she is keen on being your help mate which is surely God’s destiny for wives.


4. She always dresses decently, but attractively. Shows she is not only principled, but has values that can keep a home.

5. She is not demanding. Asks for nothing even when she knows she deserves it. Shows you won’t go bankrupt within the first year of marriage.

6. She complements your actions and corrects you calmly. Shows she not only appreciates you, but totally respects you. I guess you can foresee a peaceful home with that.

7. She is always ready to listen when you scream and screams when she’s afraid. Shows total submission.

8. She prays for your everyday development and closeness with God. Shows she desires that you remain the head in your home and live up to all your God given potentials.


9. She talks about your family and how to solve their needs. Shows she sees your family as hers now and will always work for their good.

With these clues, it should be easy for any man to identify a wifey material amidst the bevy of beautiful ladies in the world. Don’t back your friend or loved ones up in a corner, pressuring them to convince you she’s the one for you. Look out for these traits in that lady you are seeing and if she fails on too many counts, take a pass and find your “one.” But if she is every last bit of these traits, then what are you waiting for? Put a ring on it already!
