The would be bride should hail from a decent cultured family. She should be imbibed with good values of respect, compassion, homely, kindness. Now a days, more and more men seek a girl who is not only well educated but career oriented, someone who can strike a fine balance between professional & persona life. The girl should be independent and have an identity for herself than hanging on to her husband's coat tails or piggy banking on him. This can help her in bad times if by chance the husband deserts her, an independent woman need not bow & scrape to fend for herself instead keep her body and soul together if she earns for herself. The bride should be adaptable to a new family, their lifestyle and needs, fine tune herself, compromise and adjust, be a good daughter in law who respects her in laws and helps them, encourages her groom to be successful professionally & personally.
