My Dreamed Husband
Good afternoon everyone present. Today, I would like to talk about “My Dreamed Husband”. We all have very high expectations or ideals about our future husbands.

It is, therefore, quite natural for me to expect my husband to be thrifty and who would, at the same time, try to curb my spending habits. Although I would like my dreamed husband with a financially secure job, I would not like him to be over-ambitious and put his career above his family. If his focus is solely on enhancing his career prospects, he might neglect his family. He might also insist that I stay home and take care of the children....
