In prehistoric times I guess a woman looked for a man who looked strong and healthy - the type who might bring home a decent sized dead animal.
In more recent times, say last century, I suppose women went for the intellectual type, maybe with a good job or career prospects. Thomas and I were discussing the other day what today's and tomorrow's woman should be looking for in a man - what we would advise Lots, should she ask us in the future. We concluded that in modern times, the single most important trait to look for in a potential partner is his ability to look after the kids. I think any woman marrying today should ask herself - If we end up divorced, would I trust this man to look after our kids alone, abroad on a 2 week holiday? If the answer is no, think long and hard about whether he is right for you!
Cynical, me? Never!
Now that he's arrived I'm sure you have nothing to fret about ,,,
You could perhaps worry a little again on the homeward leg ! :)
But once you have them back I'm sure HE'LL heave a great sigh of relief !! I imagine 2-weeks with 3-kids, Oma & Annick might just have cured him of demanding his Children quite so often ?
