The most important thing the family of the maiden are concerned about is that, she is ripe for marriage. In this case, she might either be lucky or unlucky on how the outcome of the marriage would be like. Hence, she is expected to endure, and smile while suffering.

When a man truly loves you, he will think twice before he hurts you, or even cheats on you. He will put you first because he truly loves you, and cherishes what the both of you share. But when you marry a man who doesn't love you, he won't think twice before he openly flirts and cheats on you with almost all the beautiful women that comes his way. He won't blink an eye before he hurts you and exposes you to emotional and mental trauma. But when he truly loves you, you will be a priceless treasure he wouldn't dare to lose.
2. He must be emotionally, mentally, and spiritually mature.

Inasmuch as it is good to seek other people's opinions on things one is not sure of, it is also very important that, one is not overly open to so opinions of others. Therefore, before you marry him make sure he is not overly influenced by his parent/s, by his siblings, friends, etc. But a man who stands his grounds and make decisions by himself.
