When I was looking for a wife, I wasn’t looking for a perfect woman who would seamlessly fit into my world. No.

I wasn’t looking for a gal who would fulfill all my fantasies.

I wasn’t looking for an all dolled up being that I would flaunt around for my boys to see I hit the jackpot.
I wasn’t looking for a hot lady who would ignite and awaken the passions inside of me. (though I got more than I bargained for, hehee)
I wasn’t looking for a learned woman.
I would have cared less about how rich or affluent their family was.
It has nothing to do with these.

I was looking for a KEEPER!


I wanted someone who would keep her purity.
A lady who could muster her passions and remain CHASTE!
A lady who could look straight into my eyes and tell me NO touching till we tie the knot.

I was looking for someone who could KEEP our secrets and later, KEEP our vows!

I wanted someone who would KEEP the marriage intact and the family thriving.

I was looking for a KEEPER!

Someone who would KEEP the fire burning even after we said ‘I do’.

I wanted someone who could tell me to KEEP moving against all odds.

A lady who would KEEP reminding me why we started.

You see, that’s what is missing in relationships and marriages these days.

We look for the wrong things then we end up hating the institution of marriage.
Our expectations are not right and its the main cause of many disappointed souls and failed marriages.

We need to get things right from the beginning.
The foundation is always the most significant thing in any undertaking.
