They like what you like..

Marry the daughters with good looking men.  
Ibn al Jawzi said in his book “Adaab an-Nisa:

وَاسْتُحِبَّ لِمَنْ أَرَادَ تَزْوِيجَ ابْنَتِهِ أَنْ يَنْظُرَ لَهَا شَابًّا مُسْتَحْسَنَ الصُّورَةِ؛ لِأَنَّ الْمَرْأَةَ تُحِبُّ مَا يُحِبُّ الرَّجُلُ

And it is recommended for anyone who wants to marry off his daughter, he should see for her a good looking young man; because women also love what the men love (i.e. good looking religious spouse). [As-Saffaareeni may Allaah have mercy upon him quoted in his book Ghitha’ Al-Albaab 2/391]
Then As-Saffaareeni attributed to Umar ibn al Khattab said:

” لَا تُنْكِحُوا الْمَرْأَةَ الْقَبِيحَ الدَّمِيمَ فَإِنَّهُنَّ يُحْبِبْنَ لِأَنْفُسِهِنَّ مَا تُحِبُّونَ لِأَنْفُسِكُمْ” 

“Do not make your women marry the ugly, unsightly man, for they love for themselves what you love for yourselves.” [Ibid]
It is mentioned in al Musannaf Abdul Razzaq, Umar ra said:

” يعمد أحدكم إلى بنته فيزوجها القبيح ، إنهن يحببن ما تحبون ”

When anyone of you knowingly marry your daughter with an ugly man, (even though) she likes what you like for yourself. [ مصنف عبدالرزاق: كتاب النكاح 6/158.]
