In "Love" with Roger Hamley, too bad he's not real
1. I think that this is the biggest one, at least in my book. They tend to see the true potential and goodness in Anne, Elizabeth and Molly, even if it is eventually.
2. They are willing to get to really know the person and come to admire both their strengths and their weaknesses.
3. They serve them.
4. All of them have very real and apparent flaws, yet they are willing to work at changing them.
5. They are kind.
6. They see Women as equals.
7. They are honest.
8. They don't try to change her and mold her into societies accepted norm.
9. They think that she's beautiful.
10. Their love is based on something deeper than lust. It is a true and abiding love and one where they are willing to do whatever they can in their power to protect and provide happiness for the one they love.
11. They want to help them improve.
12. They laugh together.
13. They pursue them.
14. They connect intellectually.
15. They want to protect them.
16. They put the other's happiness before their own.
17. They are handsome, yet not always in the "hollywood" sort of way.
At the moment that is all I can come up with, but feel free to add your own reasons.
Here is the trailer for Wives and Daughters if you aren't familiar with the movie or the book.
