Of course, he should be attractive to you, and he should be able to financially provide for you. Does he live the principles of the gospel and magnify his priesthood? Does he love home and family, and will he be a faithful husband and a good father?
These are qualities that really matter.” ~Ezra Taft Benson One of the keys to a happy and successful marriage is putting the needs, wants, and desires of someone in front of your own.
For those who end up in the dating phase of life longer than they planned it becomes one of their greatest trials to endure cheerfully.
It is extremely easy to blame all of your dating problems on the opposite gender, but that leads to nothing but bitterness.
The reason your relationship with God matters is because marriage is eternal, but it is only is eternal if we keep our covenants and marriage is a three-way covenant with God. Therefore finding someone who has the same priorities of first God, second spouse, is vital to a happy marriage. ” “Am I the type of person my spouse is looking for? ” Set goals for self-improvement and focus on becoming a man/woman of God.To borrow from the wisdom of Mahatma Gandhi and adapt it Almost everyone has a list, some people write them down, others it’s only in their mind.Take a second real quick and write down what’s on your list, what are you looking for in your ideal man/woman? Whereas there is nothing inherently bad about making a list, most lists are becoming extremely poisonous.So if the man (or lady), will not put in the effort or commitment to make a relationship work then move along.When I was a missionary I realized I was not living my life in proper balance.
