Check out Terry's post on how a woman of color--or any woman for that matter --might hope to attain and maintain marriage. It's not rocket science, and it needs to be said. The "Cliff's Notes" version of her post for those who won't follow a link; femininity, chastity, modesty, attitude, and competence in a kitchen will go a long way towards getting a man on his knees and keeping him happy at home thereafter.
For those readers not made from a rib, I'd suggest that modesty, chastity, masculinity, and basic familiarity with the tools needed to maintain a household might go a long way to finding and marrying someone who is made from a rib. It might even be a good idea to learn to cook, too.
