Money? Homely-ness? Social status? Good family?
Let's say there's a girl named Leigh Anne Miller from New Orleans, 21 years old in 1950. Her parents are both from rich families who have well known old businesses. Her dad is of German descent and her mom English. She's 5'5, 110 lbs with pale skin, blue eyes and blond hair. She's known to be smart and witty, supports women's rights but also traditional (would have sex and use birth control but only after marriage.). Goes to church on Sunday but isn't a bible-thumper. Has good taste in fashion. Goes to college to become a nurse.
Would she be considered marriage-able?

Birth control didn't exist in the 50's the same way it does now. Goes to church but doesn't believe in God?
-Of course she could fine a husband but I think most oif not all men everywhere would find her strange fo using birth control. They probably wouldn't even understand why. "Is she sick or something?" Having babies was soo normal back then, that people didn't even think about it.
-Back in the 50's the wife supports the Husband. The Husband works and if needed, the wife also. My grandparents had 6 kids including my dad, my grandmother worked as a seamstress if I'm not mistaken. Also of course they have kids and have Christian values.0
