zodiac signs that make the best husbands
Love, Zodiac

Ah, the things we look for when we’re searching for that perfect mate. We can look online, at a bar, or even consult our horoscope for where to look. In terms of what women want when they think of a husband, we tend to fall back on the stereotypes.

Women do have a tendency to crave security. It’s anthropological, and though we are quite capable of living lives without men or without the benefit of their paycheck, we still want the security of knowing we’ll be okay financially. While we’re not fully on board with the idea of saying something like, “I want a man to take care of me,” we may secretly harbor thoughts of how nice it would be if a man wouldn’t mind doing such a thing if it came naturally to him.

What women want in their long-term relationships differs from what men want, and most of these desires are created in us when we are children, whether those teachings come from our parents, our grandparents or society in general. What makes for “the perfect husband” is both individual and universal.


Not sure what you should be looking for in a mate? Check out the video below to see what qualities your future husband should have:



Unless we’ve defined the parameters as polyamorous or open, we usually want our mates to be monogamous and faithful to the marriage, sexually. Many couples start out with glorious dreams of sexual fidelity and life long wanton lust for their spouse, until one day, the fire dies a bit and with that, in comes the neurosis and insecurity.

It’s hard to continuously convince your partner that they’re the only object of desire in their universe, for them, especially when that flames of lust have died down. What destroys marriages is a lack of communication, and when we start to incorporate jealousy, insecurity, lack of trust and contempt, we start the initial phases of deterioration.

So, if your man isn’t living up to your dreams of what he should be doing as your husband, then it’s time to open up the doors to communication because no one’s perfect, and we need to speak up when we think something is going wrong.

On that note, here are the zodiac signs that make the best husbands, ranked from the best to the worst.



These men are sturdy and faithful. Taurus men don’t want to cheat; they like their stability and rarely do they want to rock the boat.

He’s easy to talk to and wants nothing more than to live his life as a loyal mate to the woman he loves.

A pleaser on all levels, this one. The Pisces husband takes his role as partner very seriously and is dedicated to the idea of both financially securing the household, as well as being a romantic mate.

These men are built to take care of you, and that means financially as well as romantically.

5. LEO

If you are a woman who enjoys the idea of laughing with your mate for the rest of your life, then find yourself a wonderful Leo husband, because nobody loves to laugh more than this man.

Cancer husbands are great partners, but be prepared to know these men as homebodies. Your Cancer husband tends to work at home, spend time at home and find his entertainment at home, so if you need a break and you’re someone who spends a lot of time at home, know that hubby will be there as well. A kind-hearted guy, this one, but you may have to shove him out the door every now and again.

If you can finally get Gemini to commit, you’ll have a dedicated lover for the rest of your life. Gemini husbands are wonders of nature, as long as you treat them nicely. They tend to get overly sensitive and gloomy when they feel disrespected, and though they won’t leave, they do have the tendency to mentally disappear on you. Treat them well and they will do the same in return.

You’ll be well-protected and financially secure with your Aries husband, but you’d be out of line to assume he’ll stay faithful to you. Aries husbands are not built for monogamy, and even though they try — and they seriously DO try — they are often the first ones in a marriage to cheat. If this is something you are worried about, your first line of defense would be to talk with them, as they are open to negotiations.

Well meaning, your Virgo husband has every intention of fulfilling your dreams. Whether or not he comes through is another matter altogether. Virgo wants to be the best, but in that same breath, he also wants you to be the best, and who knows what that even entails? He may want you to maintain that girlish figure way past the day when you can, and that will not only be obnoxious and unrealistic, but it could be what breaks the two of you apart.

Another well meaning sign when it comes to marriage; however, these men are dreamers, and sometimes what they have in mind is simply unrealistic. When Aquarius men get married, they have a very strong idea of what they want in that marriage, and more often than not, what they want is impossible to realize. They are also not as open to talking about any marital issues, so communication with them sometimes falls on deaf ears.

Libra men are very open, very charismatic and very alluring, which means that other women will feel this way too about your husband. What makes this a "bad" thing is that Libra men are so kind that they’ll end up doing a favor for that other woman, to the point of perhaps even sleeping with her just to ease her mind, should she ask him to. He really wants to be a faithful lover to his wife, but he’s just too dang nice to everyone else, and that can be a real problem when it comes to being loyal.
