How can we choose a good wife in India?

One cannot simply define 'Good wife'. It depends on the requirements you have.
OK, I can tell some ideal characteristics of a good wife (husband's perspective) - No offense

  1. Great patience.
  2. Good looking
  3. Educated (at least Bachelors degree) and able to earn something (in case of your absence)
  4. Well Educated family with traditional background.
  5. Good cook and
  6. Respect elders, love children and pets
  7. Help other and maintains social relationship with neighbors (not on face-book ;) )
  8. Able to take decisions on her own
  9. Supports you in crisis (of any kind)
  10. Adjusting mentality

So this is the list, very rare to find them.
But as per our elders, a good wife should be a part of husband, where she should qualify all 6 Noble virtues. Which never exists (In this modern era)
