  • What to consider when choosing a life partner?

    I was thinking about the things that should be in a life partner. I think it is a must before choosing a life partner so we know all positive and negative factors in a person before promising to live the whole life with that person. What is your suggestion about choosing a life partner?

    I like Proverbs 31:10-31:

    10 [a] An excellent wife who can find?
    She is far more precious than jewels.
    11 The heart of her husband trusts in her,
    and he will have no lack of gain.
    12 She does him good, and not harm,
    all the days of her life.
    13 She seeks wool and flax,
    and works with willing hands.
    14 She is like the ships of the merchant;
    she brings her food from afar.
    15 She rises while it is yet night
    and provides food for her household
    and portions for her maidens.
    16 She considers a field and buys it;
    with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
    17 She dresses herself[b] with strength
    and makes her arms strong.
    18 She perceives that her merchandise is profitable.
    Her lamp does not go out at night.
    19 She puts her hands to the distaff,
    and her hands hold the spindle.
    20 She opens her hand to the poor
    and reaches out her hands to the needy.
    21 She is not afraid of snow for her household,
    for all her household are clothed in scarlet.[c]
    22 She makes bed coverings for herself;
    her clothing is fine linen and purple.
    23 Her husband is known in the gates
    when he sits among the elders of the land.
    24 She makes linen garments and sells them;
    she delivers sashes to the merchant.
    25 Strength and dignity are her clothing,
    and she laughs at the time to come.
    26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
    and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
    27 She looks well to the ways of her household
    and does not eat the bread of idleness.
    28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
    29 “Many women have done excellently,
    but you surpass them all.”
    30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
    31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,
    and let her works praise her in the gates.

    God bless,
    William

      One of the passages often used regarding dating / a potential marriage partner. 2 Corinthians 6:14 "Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness?........." The idea being to date only those who are of the same belief that you are. And a person Should be praying about a future life's husband / wife. Because the most important decision a person will ever make is that of personal salvation. And the next important one is about a husband / wife. Because it's meant to be a life-long commitment.

      Is the person growing spiritually?

      What are your goals in life? Money management? Family? Can you really talk with the person? Is there respect for each other as people. How do you feel when you're away from the person ? Do you feel more 'complete' with the person? In other wards --take time to get to know the person. Is there 'connection' between the two of you.

      So - first of all -- are you both born-again believers.

      No one is going to know all the positives and negatives of the other person. We are all in the process of 'growing'. Are we sure we're ready to settle down to one person. Be the kind of person you'd like to marry. Obviously Not of the same sex.
