The guy knows what he's doing. . . he's appealing to women in the house who are always looking for sex. He's not particularly interested in replying to the post.

@sexyLeamon, You wrong! You might lose it but don't keep losing it!

Redemption has a better deal than secondary virginity. i.e Pure Virginity even if you had sinned before!, Romans 5:15 - Gift Of Righteousness that means it is not earned. Law in the OT was meant to show us that we can't be righteous by our deeds, the strength of sin is the law-1 Cor 15:56.

When you get born again you become one with the Lord; Your spirit is perfect.

So you see yourself in righteous nature not sin nature. i.e dont focus on the law for you are the righteousness God; your sin does not compare with the sacrifice that Jesus paid. So if you are born again you can't sin-that applies in your spirit. The body and soul could fail but they transform and become perfect in the last day.

But your spirit , ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise Eph 1:13; it is sealed and sanctified; no sin can penetrate. , 1 John 3:9, Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin;, The spirit this is the only part that God communicates with.

God can never communicate with your body or soul, God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth-John 4:24. What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, God forbid-Roman6:1 if you continues in sin,then you aint born again. And that's what matters.

Man is the head of the house and the woman is the neck, so she could twist him where she wants.

Proverbs 31:10-31 (King James Version)

10Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

11The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

12She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

13She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

14She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

15She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

16She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

17She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

18She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

19She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

20She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

21She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

22She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

23Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

24She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

25Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

26She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

27She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

28Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

29Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

30Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.

31Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

Mrbrown said it all.

1st. She must be God fearing.

2nd. She must be good looking and presentable.

3rd. She must be very understanding.

4th. She must be educated and intelligent.

Lets leave all these qualities aside and

pray to God for a good house wife.

We, espacially men are always taking the

ball into their courts about a which and not to

be married!!!

Women?

Until they advance to the matrimonial home,

they could be so deceitful.

Lets pray for God`s guidance!!!

An unsuccessful marriage is like living in

HELL on Earth!

Sweetpie, you still need to explain to me why this does not apply to a man.

And there are other reasons why some women are not virgins, including molest and child abuse. I think the more important factor is what kind of person the woman is, rather than where she has been (same for a man). DOes she fear God? Is she honest and sincere? Does she have the qualities that you believe will make for a good wife and mother (which, by the way is very subjective)?

The heart of her husband safety trusts her, so he will have no lack of gain

she does him good not evil all the days of her life,

she is not afraid of snow for her household,

she grids herself with strength, and strengthens her arm,

she extend her her hand to the poor, yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy,

she opens her mouth with wisdom, and on her her tongue is the law of kidness.

her husband is known in the gates, when he sits amoung the elgers of the land.

All this shall a good wife posses.

This is why so many men have little to no respect for women. There are to many woman out there that give themselves to easily to often. no husband wants to hold a conversation or shake hands with the man who his wife have sex with when she was just the other mans girlfriend or even worse, his play thing. Do you really wanna kiss a woman whose had someone elses joystick in her mouth and make her your wife ?

I hope the man plans to be a virgin too.

I 100% second this. If both the husband and wife have the fear of God, I believe they can work through any challenges in their marriage.

What makes a my good wife? Some one who is reliable.

am sure you would think honesty should come first but consider someone who causes a crisis just because she made a "honest" mistake. Every other quality a man seeks in a good wife stems from her being reliable, what you have day 1 will be what you will always have at your death bed or hers whichever comes first. For example, trustworty ,respectful, compatible,intelligent, emotionally ready, fun, driven, with goals etc etc can be present in the begining but you need it to be sustained forever.

So guys a note of caution always seek someone who is dependable.

be a virgin . It matters much.

   What Men nowadays want from women cannot precisely be mentioned because some men don't even understand what pay them at a marital home. Reason why they firstly fail, learn sort of lessons before eventually get to their destiny.

   But whatever, to have rest of mind, let your dignity (virginity) be in place. Many men may say they don't care about it, they use this slang to deviate some new girls over there who are easily and emotionally vulnerable to evil practices. These men say opposite to what is in their mind. Most men overlook it when they no get am, but when they get am, they will be proud of it and feel special with the wife. Although some girls possess this dignity and they are not still dignified, men feel you real when you are dignified with it. It matters much to make your husband special to you among any other men. It creates  responsbility for you on your husband and which tacitly claims a right for you as a reward for devoting yourself to him alone.

     Also, try to be fairly (or very) attractive, so that your husband will be almost torched whenever he sees you at home or anywhere.

      Try to be honest and devote yourself solely for your husband especially if  U R very attractive and good-looking.

      Respect your husband when and where necessary, Or always respect him and show love when and where necessary.

     Always be at alert.

    Know all what supposed to be known by women - cooking, dressing, neatness, etc.

  Read and understand your man - in many things: Eating, dressing, fun, intelligence etc. Remove what is bad that U don't like in men (in him) and create what is good that you would like to see in men (in him).

 Always try to be cool but say all your mind when U R alone with him, and trust him.

 If you are able to do all these on your part as a woman, then pray to God to give you your match, a right man, not a demon, or a devil. You can't do without prayer to have a real man who is a cherisher of what real man cherishes as listed above.

this is a man's list, my list. of course this person will probably never be found but it doesnt mean that men should not hope and aim for it.

kid upbringing is something that we both deal with, that is not a woman's job (not in my world anyway) so i have absolutely no criteria for this subject because i will be there to make sure they get the right upbringing.

how she handles finances?! sorry i live in a different world. she works and pay her share, i work and pay my share right down the middle. we set money aside for all the necessities of life (bills, house, family vacation, clothing, kids etc etc etc) whatever is left on her salary after all this is her decision what to do with it not mine. dont think i can ever get down with someone without a job or without prospects.

handle family and friend?! as i said on my list "respectful of us and others" thats all that matters.

in my world my spouse has to be my friend, my lover, my mother, my sister, my wife all in one so the same way that i handle my gf is the same way that she will have to be. no difference in my book. i do not need someone that is one way while we are dating and getting to know and love each other and then turn out into something else the day we get married. NOPE!!!!!

do not forget, this is my list(my humble opinion), what i think are the qualities a woman need to have before i pop the question. i may never find her but i am not too keen on marriage anyway so all is well on my part.
