Is Your Partner Marriage Material?

We are at a point in time where dating is unlike anything we have ever seen before. It’s all dating sites and apps. Sure, these virtual meeting places require a profile to be made explaining the personality of the potential mate, but we all know this stuff is mostly based on looks. Of course it is necessary to be attracted to someone before getting to know them, but this new online dating terrain takes that to the extreme level. We literally “swipe” people away who don’t look good enough within the first few second of seeing a photograph through a small screen.

This way of meeting potential life partners seems a bit… superficial. Have we lost the ability to understand what true marriage material really is? Sometimes those substantial qualities aren’t as fun or as beautiful as the stuff on the surface, but if you want to be in a relationship based off more than looks and what clubs you both frequent, than maybe you want to look at the list below of what marriage material looks like.

  1. Reliability. Don’t get this mistake this with predictability, which may seem to eventually become a bore. Someone who is reliable is always going to be there for you, through the thick and thin, good times and bad. They are going to do what they say when they say it and you will never have to guess if they mean what they say.
  2. Goodhearted. Someone with a good heart is kind, considerate and compassionate. You can see this by how they interact with their family, children, animals and, of course, you. Someone who genuinely cares for others and expresses that caring instinct is going to be a keeper.
  3. Patience. This is a biggie, because if you are thinking you want to be with this person for the rest of your life than patience is going to be key. This is how you will get through arguments without them getting out of hand, how you will learn about each other, both good and bad things, over the years and how you will remain calm in turbulent situations. Patience is a hard thing to cop, so when you find someone with that instinct, appreciate it.
  4. Thoughtful. At the end of the day, to be able to come home to a partner who cleaned the house because he knew you would be too tired, or made dinner because she knew you wouldn’t have time, is priceless. Thoughtfulness goes along way, especially in the busy world we live in. People who are thoughtful tend to have more connected relationships with their partners. To have someone who thinks about the little ways they can brighten your day is major.
