What do we really want from our man?

by Mama Chocolate on June 4, 2012

I found this infographic entertaining. Though they didn’t even cover my demographic of the age when I got my man, (he’s a cradle-robber,) I’m happy to say that I’m pretty sure I did get Mr. Perfect there on the graph with the Total Package. ;-)

Financial security in a man is super important to me, especially since I’ve always wanted to be able to afford to stay home with our kids myself. I am so fortunate to have a man who wants me to be able to stay home too, and he works harder than anyone I know to help make that happen.

I also know financial problems are one of the leading causes of divorce and John and I both want to avoid that extra stress in our lives. The stress is still there, but God has been gracious to us in keeping us from serious financial problems through John’s hard work and diligence through our marriage so far, and I am so thankful for that!

So, how important is financial security to you? Are we going to catch you frequenting sugardaddie.com or stalking country clubs? ;-)

Great infographic – I got my man in my twenties and I think though that far too much of my decisions then were based on whether their bums looked good in a pair of black jeans!

Clicked on the link at the bottom of your post, and…. I have no words…. Never imagined such a dating site actually existed. :-)

Well, I’m over 40 and my husband is over 50 but, yes, financial stability is an absolute MUST. Also, the intelligence to realize that televisions now come with a pause buttons. Wives still do not.

I had to laugh at that cradle robber comment. When people comment about the age difference between my husband and I he says, “I’m not robbing the cradle, she’s robbing the grave.” LOL it sends people into fits of laughter.

Financial stability is important. I crave it. But hard work and diligence is even more so. Our experiences of the last year have made it very clear to us that the two do not necessarily go together. And you’d better believe that I have cried buckets of tears over both not having financial stability and people’s seeming perceptions of my husband because we don’t have it! Regardless, I don’t think I’ll be frequenting that site anytime soon, and I’ve never for one minute been sorry I married the man I did.
