Poll on husband material:
Is it true, that you can tell everything you need to know about how a man will treat you, by looking at his relationship with his mother? “Not even close,” say 65% of experts. A poll taken by YourTango.com shows 55% of respondents disagree that a man who has never been married by age 40 likely has a deep-seated fear of commitment or some other undesirable issue to resolve. The vast majority who were surveyed agree that the No. 1 quality that makes a man husband-material is his ability to communicate, followed by honesty and reliability. And, when it comes to finding a husband, experts say the following three qualities matter least to their clients: a man’s height, followed by his religion/ethnicity and then his job.
More than 96% of respondents concur that great husbands are made, not born – so it’s never too late for a guy to live up to his potential. However, a whopping 89% of experts believe that addictions to drugs, alcohol, gambling and/or sex disqualify a man from being husband material.
