I would say it all boils down to compassion for both men and women.

I could have said, communication, commitment (sounds like a Dr. Phil show) but sometimes we don't communicate well and other times we foul up on commitments, but I don't think you can be a compassionate person, lose your compassion, and still be a good husband or wife. Compassion means the caring for the person, which goes well beyond the other characteristics and fills in when others fail.

I think it's the same for both:

Honestly making the other person's happiness your first priority, above and beyond your own.

What makes a good wife?

Before we married I told my wife what I expected, and over the years it's held up well.

First, she must love and protect the children. Second, which ties in with the first, she must not be addicted to drugs. People sometimes do crazy bad things when they get addicted to drugs. Third, sex, lots of good wild sex.

What makes a good husband? I have no idea. I have no idea why she stays with me after 35 years of marriage, either.
