Kritika Pushkarna, Features Editor, Delhi: I expect my husband to be understanding and the main quality that I want is the support. He should be supporting enough.
Zee Lohan, Student and Amateur Artist, Kolkata: He should be respecting my ideals, like I would his. I don’t want him to change for me and neither should he ask me to.
Chaitanya Saraf, CEO, Delhi: My would be wife should be modern with traditional values and should easily adjust within my family.
Harday Gupta, Assistant Manager Media & Client Servicing, Noida: She should be understanding, caring, practical and a kind hearted person. And if she is a good cook then it will be an additional quality. The looks and appearance does not matter. A beautiful heart is thing which is needed.
Sherna Jayaraman, Newlywed Home Maker, Hyderabad, Ex-Mumbaian: I was in Mumbai before marriage and after marriage I shifted to Hyderabad. As both are cities I am quite fine with either. I wanted my ideal husband to be caring, loving, understanding and adjustable with a level of compatibility that would match me not just now but for every step in life. Apart from that I wanted a person who is settled in life or at least has an idea of what to do and where to settle. By god’s grace, I have found an almost ideal husband through an arranged marriage match via an online matrimony website.
