There is no such thing as a perfect husband or a perfect marriage.
But, sometimes, it’s the flaws that make a partnership truly last.
True love, after all, is loving an imperfect person perfectly.
These seemingly imperfect traits (in healthy doses) are actually not red flags but could be seen as assurances that who you have by your side is there to stay.
He’s an ‘over-sharer’
The most common root of any understanding is miscommunication.
So having a husband who is very vocal about his emotions, helps you both nip potential conflicts in the bud. A little T.M.I. goes a long way.
He is an open book who doesn’t keep you guessing what is bothering him all the time. It also saves you from worrying whether he is merely pretending that everything is fine when it isn’t.
But this trait isn’t always desirable and should be kept in check.
He’s slightly entitled
This is a bit tricky. Although he may seem like he is solely focused on himself, having a slight sense of entitlement can be a good thing.
It simply means he does not settle for anything less than the best. So he lives life working towards going beyond what’s ‘good enough’ and pursuing what will give him true joy.
This applies to every decision he makes. This paired with hard work makes him an ideal partner who’ll push you to pursue your personal growth and fulfillment.
Marrying a man who does not give up easily can help strengthen your partnership through life’s challenges.
But his stubbornness should be rooted in objectivity and knowledge. He also respects you enough not to let you win every argument all the time.
He loves you enough to be honest with you.
When stubbornness is coupled with humility and knowing when to concede, this becomes a valuable trait that can help you both weather life’s storms.
All these ‘flaws’, when you really think about it, truly are desirable traits in a partner.
Accepting and loving him not in spite of but because of these supposed quirks is one of the many complicated beauties of marriage.
