How to find a Husband – Nice Story

A “Husband Shopping Center” has just opened where a woman may go to choose a husband from among many men. The store has five floors, and the men increase in positive attributes as the shopper ascends the flights.

There is, however, a catch:  As you open the door to any floor you may choose a man from that floor, but if you go up a floor, you cannot go back down except to exit the building.

So a woman goes to the shopping center to find a husband.

On the first floor the sign on the door reads: Floor 1 – These men have jobs. The woman reads the sign and says to herself, “Well, that’s better than my last husband, but I wonder what’s further up?” So up she goes.

The second floor sign reads: Floor 2 – These men have jobs and love kids. The woman remarks to herself, “That’s great, but I wonder what’s further up?” And up she goes again.

The third floor sign reads: Floor 3 – These men have jobs, love kids and are extremely good looking. “Hmmm, better” she says. “But I wonder what’s upstairs?”

The fourth floor sign reads: Floor 4 – These men have jobs, love kids, are extremely good looking and help with the housework. “Wow!” exclaims the woman, “very tempting. BUT, there must be more further up!” And again she heads up another flight.

The fifth floor sign reads: Floor 5 – You are visitor number 123,974,389 to this floor. There are no men on this floor.

 This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at HusbandMart and have a nice day.

    I really like it , It is a great wisdom, a human must determine what he wants before he enters the field of choices

    Thank U sara,the joke has just taught us to be contented with whatever,we have as there’s no perfection anywhere. If U continue to search,U may never get a perfect man.

      Rightly said Shuaib.

    made a man confident / motivated and successful is always in the hands of women…but women usually preffer ready-made things as the other way require some efforts and sacrifications.

    , when you have little you want more, when you have more you want still more.When youlose everything, you then realise little was enough.

    Ha! Ha! This would equally apply to a wife-hunting place!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We are never satisfied with what we have! Than is human nature!

    its very actual that happend most of people look for the best thing and its a good adjective
    *but okay its too nice

  8. Ahmad Ibraheem August 22, 2012 at 3:51 PM #

    In fraud; the greedy is always the victim. What more would she have wanted of a husband, besides those qualities @the 4th floor? Riches?
    It‘s why curiosity always kills the cat!
    A nice one, Sara!

    • Sara - Admin August 24, 2012 at 7:50 PM #

      Glad you liked it, Ahmad!

        • madooo12 August 22, 2012 at 1:22 AM #

          you just need to talk, that’s human nature, if your wife really loves you, she will forget anything bad you ever did, just try to show her your love and appreciation, try to be cheerful and avoid being angry or shouting, god allowed men to lie to their wives to make them happy, tell her how much you love her and that you appreciate what she does (wives do lots of things)

          Hope things go well too

          • Zuabir August 22, 2012 at 6:34 PM #

            Please do not discuss your personal matters.

  12. atta June 13, 2012 at 12:50 PM #

    women like husbands who help ,serve.satisfy them

  13. Rabah June 2, 2012 at 12:40 PM #

    men have to accept women as you are . it is impossible to stisfy them.
    you must listen,
    do not say:NO,
    accept what they say,
    and be strong, laddies, women and girls do not like aweak man.

  14. Kailula May 4, 2012 at 5:19 PM #

    This teaches always to be contented with what you have or you are, eying ahead could lead to total lose.

  15. MSM.SORONDINKI April 26, 2012 at 3:58 PM #

    The take from this story is to indicate that one should not push his luck to far, people who do that often ends of the worse for it. just as our rasul(saw) has commended try to be moderate in life as moderation is love by God.
    a good story and agreat lesson in life- shows greed is abad omen for any one who try it.

  16. Dr. Md. Golam Mostafa April 14, 2012 at 9:01 AM #

    It seems to me that the lady was a researcher, wanted to study every floor, and concluded what action would be the best for her. Since there was no rule that she might not be allowed to go shopping for the second time, she would now the best option to go to the right floor to choose the best husband. I congratulate the all ladies for their correct decision they made.

  17. lovely yaqubi April 10, 2012 at 12:38 PM #

    hahahahaahahah that is really nice story but i think all human have this kind of expectation to choose something better……..

  18. mbb April 3, 2012 at 4:55 PM #

    Sure this was expected as most woman are always demanding and there is the hadith that most of them will be occupants of Jahannum.
    Hope its not you for sure.
