It may seem creepy and kooky to want to model yourself after a fictional person. Especially someone who can't wait to be dead. Yet, Morticia has so many admirable traits and such an appealing flair that it's onerous not to be influenced by her.

4. She Has Her Priorities Straight

Tish is a dedicated wife, mother, community volunteer and wannabe crusader of the dark forces. She knows her responsibilities, what she wants and how to get it going about them. This is why her life isn't flustered with unnecessary chaos; even though she's probably unsatisfied about that.

3. Morticia's Her Own Person

In the TV show and films, Morticia and her familys' quirky mannerisms and their "normal" peers adverse reactions to them are played up for laughs. However, the Addams family see nothing wrong with their lifestyle. They're not concerned with how people view them or bother acknowledging the disapproving stares of others. Tish and the family are too busy having a ball and being down to earth to be trivially concerned with trivial societal standards. Sometimes I'm frequently occupied with how people may judge me based on my wardrobe, beliefs, commentary, interests etc. that I'll lay low to avoid any confrontation.

2. A Loving Mother

Sometimes her children's mischievous activities slip past her head but Morticia's very attentive towards Wednesday, Puglsey and Pubert. She conveniently shows up whenever something's gone right (aka wrong), and attempts to mend their problems with nurturing or words of encouragement. Tish and Gomez also make sure to support their children in their endeavors, even if they don't always conquer or comprehend the reasoning behind them.

Brava! Bravo!

1. Fantastic Lover and Partner

Morticia and Gomez are in tune to each other's desires and needs. They're empathetic to each other's emotions and almost immediately recognize when their spouse experiences discomfort or displeasure, and try to resolve it with a remedy or passionate love making. They rarely bicker, but when they do they manage to keep it civil and nip the argument in the bud.

Their romantic bond is so endearing and intimate that they can't wait till they're rotting together in the ground together for all eternity. This kind of devotion to someone is extremely rare, and I believe it's something we all strive for when looking for our significant other, and Morticia makes it look so easy. You may be wondering do why all of these traits matter to me personally? Well, I hope in the future that I'm entirely comfortable with myself, have my priorities straight, am a competent parent and have a compassionate relationship with my partner.
