St. Katherine of Alexandria (Feast Nov. 25) (especially for women seeking husbands)

St. Joseph (Feast March 19)

St. Raphael (Angel who led Tobit to his wife)

St. Theres of Lisieux (whose spouse was Christ, but is a great help to those seeking earthly counterparts).

Our Holy Mother I'm sure would be more than happy to help! She helped my husband and me find each other!

Plus, St. Anthony is good at finding ANYTHING!

I think there is an old tradition of unmarried girls praying to Saint Agnes on the eve of her feast day for a dream of their future husband. Keats wrote a poem about it, but I am fuzzy on the details.

St. Raphael is the patron saint of 'good encounters'. His intercession helped me find my (soon-to-be) spouse!

St. Nicholas is also the patron saint of marriageable women because there is a story (I'm not quite sure of the status of the 'story') that he left the necessary dowry for 3 sisters before they turned to a sinful way of getting the money they needed to live.

The other suggestions here are great!

Nothing beats the "St. Anne, bring me a man" novena.

I should be happy, could I have a Catholic good husband, but I cannot find a good Catholic man loves me also I love him , also he can be my husband.

-I know that I did not really looking for, and also now I feel good to live a life like a little girl no matter what...,a pure life, I once thought later maybe I make or not make a oath boldly like a nun? but then I asked Holy Mother, and then I see another picture, and once I dreamed I had a beloved, and he appeared in my dreams many times, but I can not see his face clearly, do you think my dreams can come true? please do pray for me! And I want live a life that Holy Mother want me live, no matter what it is, and I love all Holy Angels, most is St Raphael,

wow........No word of lie.......I had a number of dreams about myself marrying a man a while ago too.......I could not see his face either......I was praying very hard and that happened.....I also got my flowers from st. Theresa on several occasions (the exact type of flowers that I prayed for at the time), but it's been a little while now since all of that and the flowers.......I also was painting a life size statue of our Lady of lourdes in my church a few years ago.......praying to her as I was painting and this thought came over me after I kissed her on the cheek "my son has someone wonderful in store for you" ....that same thought came over me when I was up in the church praying next to her statue and the altar one saturday.......a few times I'd be praying and a funny thought of "why don't you believe me?" came over me....then I'd feel bad, but it just seems like such a long wait....I am very serious when I tell you that.....but, I'm already in my 30's and keep wondering.....I wonder if I'm going to be old when it happens.... really want at least one child too........roselily, you pray for me to meet my man soon and I will pray for you for the same thing.....deal?.......I'm so glad that you posted that, because now I know that I wasn't having a nervous breakdown or anything.......there has to be good ones in store for the both of us, girl!!!!
