"Unfortunately, the number one husband-worthy trait that most women overlook is kindness. Not great news for all the nice guys out there!" states YourTango CEO, Andrea Miller.
Additional survey findings include:
- Don't discount dads. Fifty-eight percent of experts agree that single fathers make great husbands.
- Say "no" to mama's boys. Eighty-eight percent say that "mama's boys" are not husband material.
