    duh!! aibu!! haya here we go
    she must be mature
    she must have unwavering self belief
    she must have no grudges/preconceived notions abt men
    she must conduct herself in a manner that does not bring shame to herself or her better half
    she should know that she is to respect and help her husband and that husband is head of family if indeed she does become a wife
    she must be able to inspire and imbue her husband with the desire to be a success in life
