I have narrowed it down to two. My sensible choice and my more imprudent, guilty-pleasure choice.
Potential future husband number 1: Mr Darcy played by Colin Firth
My sensible choice is of course, Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice. A wealthy man, Darcy is not intimidated by a well-educated woman and makes declarations along the lines of; “In vain have I struggled, it will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.” He also looks damn good in a top hat.
Potential future husband number 2: Eric Northman, played by Alexander Skarsgård in the television adaptation True Blood
My second, more impulsive choice, is Eric Northman from Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse Novels, specifically his persona from the fourth book, ‘Dead to the World’, where he loses his memory and becomes less the vicious vampire and more the croon worthy studmuffin. Vicious or not, however, it has to be said that his on-screen character played by Alexander Skarsgård in the television adaptation ‘True Blood’, is quite the sexy spunk. Being a vampire and all, and a misbehaving one at that, I suspect he’s probably not the marriage type…but just look at him!
