For better or worse. Much, much worse.

The idea of marriage is something we all buy into when we’re children. It’s what we’re supposed to do; it’s our future. We are taught from an early age by our families, society, and even our horoscopes that marriage is our destiny, our course. To be a full human, we are supposed to follow the plan accordingly, and marriage is a rite of passage that has been ingrained in us — a “must do” action.


When we get married, we always marry for life. We never, ever walk into the idea of a marriage with the thoughts of, “Hmm. Someday, I’d like to get divorced as well! Wouldn’t that be awesome?”

Unfortunately, many of us marry only to discover that divorce is basically part of the deal. Marriage can be made up of unrealistic ideals, and that’s why so many of us fail at it.

In the beginning, we’re on our best behavior. After all, it takes a long, long time to really get to know someone.

What might be an adorable “snoring” habit at first may over time become the most hellacious trait your partner can have.


And don’t laugh — snoring has ruined many a marriage.

But what really ruins a marriage is a conflict of personality, and so much of who we are — personality-wise — depends on our zodiac sign.

So which zodiac signs make the best wives? We use astrology to determine who's really marriage material.  

There are women out there who were born to make you their world, and women who simply don’t notice you exist. While everybody stands a chance, if you’re looking to get married, you might want to learn about the astrological makeup of the woman you’re about to set up house with.

From Cancer to Sagittarius, here are the zodiac signs that make the great wives, ranked from best to worst.


1. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

If you’re looking for loyalty and a good stable foundation, a wife born under the sign of Cancer is an ideal mate.

Cancer women love family life and they truly do love being married. To marry a Cancer woman is to marry someone who is invested in the union; she will never lie to you.

She is much like a wolf: she mates for life. Her intentions are good and as far as life partners go, she makes for one of the zodiac signs that make the best wives.

They have a very lovely side to them that is based in creativity, and part of that goes to the kind of children she wants to raise with you.

While moody, if you come to understand the nuances of your Pisces lady, you will unfold a flower of immense beauty and understanding. Pisces women are loyal and intelligent.

3. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

This is the sign of the zodiac that brings forth the nicest people of them all. And that goes doubly so for the women.

You will never be berated by a Libra woman as she gets what she wants through kindness, rather than through manipulative means.

4. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

While you may find yourself in some rather amorous arguments with your Taurean bride, you will find that this kind of head-to-head confrontation can actually stimulate the marriage in a very positive way.

Taurus women are very intelligent, so it’s not all about the physical with them; you have to engage them with your mind as well as your body.

As a wife, you’ll find her to be steadfast and loyal, as well as an incredible mother figure to your children.

5. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

The Aquarius woman is strong and independent and when she’s not living inside her own mind, she is quite available as a pleasant and giving life partner.

The only thing that you really have to watch for is becoming boring, as she cannot and will not tolerate boredom in a relationship.

These ladies are smart as whips, so you’ll need to keep up. However, if you’re up to the task, being the life partner to an Aquarian wife is one of the most gratifying situations you’ll ever find yourself in.

6. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Running a household, business, and kids is tough stuff, but doing that while maintaining a happy marriage is the kind of stuff that only a Capricorn woman can do with great finesse.


When you marry a Capricorn woman, you marry into order, schedules, and on time payments.

This is a very organized woman and while she’s a devil between the sheets, she’s an accountant on the streets.

7. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

As we start to descend into the lesser of the desirable wife-types, we will see that Gemini women are some of the most loving and supportive individuals you’ll ever meet.

Until, of course, her interests change. A Gemini wife is a thing of beauty, but a scattered matter in itself.

She is creative to a fault and will provide you with great loyalty and affection, but she truly is a representative of The Twins, as the zodiac goes, and you may not ultimately like “her other side.”

8. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Not a terrible choice for life mate, a Scorpio wife will bring out the best in you, for sure.

You do have to have a strong disposition, however, as this woman will demand from you more than you might be able to give.

Still, in all, her tendency to set the bar high has the potential of giving you something to look forward to.

She will show you your potential. As a sex partner, you will adore the thrills and chills of being married to a Scorpio lady.

9. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You have to be cut out for the role of spouse if you are to marry a Virgo woman. She’s got a great sense of what’s right and wrong, and while that may work for her, it might not always work for you.


Sometimes the best thing to say to her is, “Yes, dear.” This is no joke. If you want to benefit from her incredible ability to love and adore you — which is very fine and very real — then you have got to get used to the idea of humoring her.

If your marriage lasts, then you already know the deal.

10. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

She gives everything you have, and to have a Leo bride is an honor, but watch out for those mood swings.


Her ups and downs are notorious, and if she doesn’t get what she wants, she doesn’t sulk about it, she lashes out. And you’ve heard the expression, “You only hurt the ones you love”?

Well, if you’re the one she loves, then prepare to take the blows because this lady will not stand for anything less than what she wants, when she wants it. It really is her way or the highway.

11. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries woman are glorious, beautiful and wonderful. It’s very easy to fall in love with an Aries woman and she’s the smartest cookie in the box, not to mention her confidence and ability.


As a wife, she’s incredibly loyal, but she expects payment for that loyalty, and should you not come up with your side of the marriage bargain, then she will also be the first one to leave you for another.

All the fire that makes the Aries woman passionate and gorgeous is the very same fire that will burn you to cinders should you disappoint her.

12. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

If you like never knowing where you stand, then, by all means, marry a Sagittarius woman. These women are outstanding, as long as they get to do what they want.

They’ve got a streak in them that desires freedom more than commitment, and even though they intend to be loyal and attentive in a marriage, they are far more interested in their own creative plans.


Sag women are wonderful partners, as long as you can roll with their kind of weirdness, and weird they are.

Then again, if you CAN roll with their weird, you’ll find yourself in a marriage that is close to perfection.
