29 Qualities of a good marriage partner.
1) They are grown and fully matured:
Any minor is not fit to be a good marriage partner, because they are not ripped for marriage yet, and should not be included in your list of your intending partners.
The slogan that “Age is just a number,” is not a lie, but you should look for someone who is matured at heart. Someone who has “recognized and resolved their childhood loses and trauma, and fully aware of their impacts in the new ways of life.”
A fully matured partner should be able to stand her ground when making great decisions. According to the writer of healthyplace.com, “Maturity in a relationship is the ability to base a decision about love relationship on a big picture- The long haul, in general, means being able to pass up the fun moment and select the course and action which will pay off later.”
2) Ready To Commit:
Before he/she will be qualified to be a good marriage partner, they should be ready to commit.
Many people are so afraid to commit to a long-term relationship. Commitment in a relationship is simply about deciding to dedicate yourself to the growth and development of your relationship.
Any partner that is afraid to fully dedicate to your relationship, is not fit to be addressed as one. Count them off.
Understand also that commitment is not love, because you can love your partner and still be unwilling to commit.
3) Beautiful Or Handsome At Heart:
In marriage, facial beauty doesn’t count much. Your prospective partner may not be beautiful facially to attract you for a marriage, but he/she may be beautiful from within.
Judging someone by appearance isn’t right. The best way to know a person’s worth is by the way they speak or their character.
A person’s inner beauty is expressed through their humble behavior, “noble thought” and good actions. To know if she/ he is a good marriage partner, then look at what she possess within and not the facial beauty.
4) Love and Relates Well With Your Family:
A marriage partner will push you apart from your family because they are not good at keeping relationships. Your best partner will be your families’ best friend.
When someone is really in love with you, then you will do everything to extend that love to your family members.
5) Integrity And Honesty Are Their Watchwords:
Integrity is important in every relationship, and many relationships have gone through hell without it. It eats away the good things that are required for building a successful relationship.
