So brothers, it may look as if all you need now is a beautiful woman you can proudly show off publicly and get positive comments from your male friends, or who'll birth beautiful children for you, but few years from now in marriage, what you will earnestly need is peace of mind, an intelligent wife that can proffer intelligent solutions, an understanding wife, and a respectful and loving wife.

These are the features of inner beauty. Not every woman with captivating outer beauty possesses a captivating inner beauty. So look before you leap. Let God lead you, not your senses.

Because, a woman's outer beauty wouldn't matter to you in marriage if she doesn't give you peace of mind.

A woman's outer beauty wouldn't mesmerize you in marriage if she is a quarrelsome wife.

A woman's outer beauty wouldn't mean anything to you if she disrespects you.

Her beauty will not matter to you if she nags day and night.

King Solomon warns, "It is better to live in a desert than with a quarrelsome and nagging wife." Proverbs 21:19

In as much as outer beauty is good, inner beauty is better, prioritize it.

Don't marry for outer beauty alone, marry for inner beauty.

And to my sisters, God's Word counsels us below:

"What matters is not your outer appearance—the styling of your hair, the jewelry you wear, the cut of your clothes—but your inner disposition.

Cultivate inner beauty, the gentle, gracious kind that God delights in. The holy women of old were beautiful before God that way, and were good, loyal wives to their husbands."

1 Peter 3:3-5 MSG
