So, How Do You Find the Right Spouse Anyway?
While romantic love is usually the primary consideration when choosing a life partner, it’s important to make sure that the person you love is compatible with all the other compatibility factors, like your beliefs, personality, and life plans before taking the plunge. These are the key areas you should consider to increase the likelihood of choosing a spouse with whom you’ll be happy for an entire lifetime.
If you’re a religious person, consider whether it’s important to marry a person of the same faith. If your partner doesn’t share your religion, would you expect them to convert? Would they be willing to do so? On the flip side, would you be willing to convert to a partner’s religion if they asked you to do so? When you and your partner have different beliefs, discuss whether you plan to raise children in one religion or the other.
