Do you want to have your own family? Today, in Japan, the number of women who doesn’t want to marry has been increasing. However, many women probably answer for this question, “Yes”. Getting married has a very important meaning for a woman. Also, most of the women are wishful for marriage, and prepare for their married life. I think that there are three important steps to become an attractive wife: the way to find your lifetime partner, learn how to cook and do housework, and the way to keep a good relationship with your husband. First, to choose your partner is an important thing for you. You have to choose your partner carefully because all of your lifetime will be spent with your partner. He should be a kind and reliable person, and most importantly, you love each other. If you don’t pay attention when choosing your partner, you may not be able to stay in the marriage for a long time. Also, before you get married, you should first live together with your partner. There are many obstacles to understand each other. For instance, you might find what you dislike of the partner when you live with him. Therefore, you should get used to accepting it before getting married. Second, you should learn to cook and do housework before you become a wife. Most of the men like women who can cook and do housework very well. In Japan, people have an image that the woman who is a good cook and can do housework well can become a good wife. I think so too. Also, if you want to have a child, you need to learn how to raise your kid. All mothers must discipline their child properly. You should talk a lot to your child, and take time listening to their everyday’s life. Third, in order to become a good wife, you need to learn how to keep a good, long marriage. I think that love is the most important thing for maintaining a good marriage. There are many ways to prevent a bad marriage. For example, you should not flirt with other men. Moreover, if both of you and your husband are busy, you should take some time off to spend with each other. For instance, you should spend time with your husband during important occasions, such as wedding anniversary or the birthdays of each other. In conclusion, to become a good wife, you need to pick the right partner for your marriage, and then you should learn how to be a responsible wife that cares for the family. Last, you should realize that a good marriage requires you to fall in love again and again with your partners; therefore, you should learn how to keep a good marriage.
