I think you mean Israelites. I don't think there were ancient Israelis, given that the state of Israel is only some 80 or so years old.
All the good ancient Israelites found their wives by dealing with sheep, or other animals.
Abraham's servant found a wife for his son because he had her feed his camel. Jacob got both of his wives and two concubines by pursuing his favourite wife, who was a shepherdess. Moses was rewarded his wife because he fought off the bad shepherds who weren't letting his wife and her sisters water their father's flocks (presumably shepherdesses also). David was a shepherd, but then got involved with the Philistines which are arguably even dirtier than animals. Finally, King Saul agreed to give him his daughter to wed if he'd but just smite 100 or so Philistines.
So as you can see, if you want a wife, you need to tend to animals - preferably sheep - unless smiting Philistines is your thing. The marriages were presumably good, but you do hear a few minor complaints.
Take the famous people in the OT Bible. Trust in God and they will get the fit one they want.
Only the parties themselves know how good it was.
And they must have blessed mates,For there is a boy to be born in the house of Israel, and that is Jesus Christ.
As for the rest of Israelites, they may be going through the same situation as we are now.
The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
