There are some things a man simply must be before he is qualified to assume the role of a husband and father. Now this is not an exhaustive list by far, but there are four characteristics that a young man must possess in order to be suitable for a young woman. He must be a Christian, he must be committed to Biblical leadership, he must be a protector, and he must be a provider. A man who does not possess - or at least show signs of developing - these characteristics does not meet the basic job description laid down for husbands in the Bible.
It has been said that the woman is the heart of the home. Now if that is the case it raises a very important question for a young man to ask himself when looking for a wife. What kind of a heart do I want my home to have? This line of thinking will get a young man started down the right track, but it is our goal to introduce some additional thoughts from the Bible. As we do so we ask the question what should a young man look for in a young woman?
Marriage by God's Design
The Bible emphatically teaches that God ordained marriage. Marriage did not originate with man. It is not something that a group of people just thought up one day and decided would be good for society. Nor is it something that can evolve or change as man desires. Marriage was put in place by God in the beginning.
