3' tall(perfect height for...) got a flat head to set a beer, deaf, dumb, blind and over-sexxed and owns a liquer store. She's rich and owns a big house with good looking maids that put out freely. Lives on an island in the Pacific maybe. That's my perfect wife!

A good wife loves her hubby through his successes & failure and provides reassurance when he's feeling down. She works tirelessly to ensure a happy comfortable home. Respects her hubby & she never chooses to belittle, strike, humilate or harm him. Loyal, supportive, someone who is their spouse's best friend. And someone good in the kitchen & bed haha. They love uncondtionally.

Hope this helps to the answer to the question.

The praise and characteristics of a good wife.
Prov 31:10-31 (KJV)
10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. 11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. 12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. 13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. 14 She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar. 15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. 16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. 17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. 18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night. 19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. 20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. 21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. 22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. 23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. 24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. 25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. 26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. 27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. 28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. 29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. 30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. 31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

"What is the characteristics of a good wife?"

Really???!!! How about "What are..."? Also, that all depends on the spouse's idea of a good wife. For every man, that idea can differ a great deal. How sad it is that someone feels the need to ask this question on Topix. If you have to ask it, you don't know what you're looking for. Define yourself first, then look for a mate.

I think the intent of the statement was to provoke thought more than list a selection criteria. By the tone of your statement, I would say that you are taking a defensive position ... meaning that you wouldn't live up to the expectations of the poster. You need to remember that was only one persons opinion, not a rule of thumb. Instead of insulting the poster (and their grammatical error), why don't you give us your opinion on the topic?

Maybe if more women asked ths question marriages would last longer. Nothing wrong with a woman trying to better herself for her husband.

I stated my opinion. Did you miss the line where I state that it differs from person to person? What one man sees as the ideal woman, another may differ. General rule of thumb would be honesty, morality, wholesome, true to themselves, and well versed in the "Golden Rule".

And as for your assumption that I feel I wouldn't live up to the poster's expectations...I know very well who I am and who my mate desires me to be. I don't feel the need to live up to anyone else's wants or wishes.

No, I didn't miss the line; I did miss the specifics (because they weren't provided the first time). Thank you for elaborating. As for my assumption, it was based solely on the tone and content of your reply to the poster. I do agree with your "rule of thumb", however you seem a bit self absorbed. Why?

I agree.
"Rule of Thumb" is the common reference to an antiquated British law that held a man could beat his wife with no object larger around than his thumb.

But being the good, dedicated little wife, I'm sure you already knew that.

Just because some women choose to be independent and not bow to their husband's will does not make them "bad" wives. Being a door mat for a man is a sure way to end up in misery. Good luck!

Leave it to some Smucko to patronize someone for their beliefs.

If a woman chooses to be so independent then she should not get married. Marriage is a sacred bond between a man and woman. I dont feel i bow down to my husband but i do cherish him.

I'm afraid I mis-spoke. I meant that I agree with your "golden rule" statement, not "rule of thumb". Sorry ... my bad.

Not just a sacred bond, but a partnership based on honesty, trust and mutual respect. Not to be stereotypical, but I've found the independent people I've dated very one-sided and self absorbed in their thinking. It's futile to think someone like this will change because compromise is not in their reasoning (detrimental to a meaningful or long term relationship).
