Marriage is an institution, they say and who wants to go in an institution ? Lol, jokes apart, whether you choose or choose not to marry, one day you all eventually wed happily and before you enter that marriage phase, look for the following qualities in your partner for a healthy relationship.
Gauge the nature of your partner before deciding to marry him/her. Trust me life’s eighty percent of happiness post marriage depends upon the nature of your better half no matter who or what you are and where you live.
9. Atmosphere of the family
Well, boys get a bit relaxation on this aspect but unfortunately we girls don’t get this freedom for we have to stay at our partner’s place along with his family, even if just the two of you stay together due to certain nature of jobs, yet study the family rituals, nature, kinds carefully.
Knowing the likes and dislikes of your partner will aid you in resorting to the acts that keep you partner happy and will prevent you from getting involved in the acts which he/she detests the most.
7. Emotional intelligence
Understand how sensitive is your partner ? What upsets him/her quickly ? How much separation can he/she bear with? How much freedom and space does he/she want ? Do any sort of envy issues exist? Do they complain, whine ?
Do they critically analyze ? How negatively or positively they deal with ? Knowing EQ will reduce the head ache.
6. Financially stable
Nope, I don’t ask you men and women folk to look for Bill Gates or a royal princess respectively. All I am saying is ensure your partner has sufficient funds to sustain a happy life ahead and be able ro provide your offspring a secure future with dignity. That’s all. Funds just enough to cater to the needs with dignity .
5. Physical intimacy
Check out your libido levels. Who is going to be super hot in bed out of the two ? Ensure that you and your partner are at same libido levels for if one is a notch higher and the other is a notch lower then chances are that conflicts and ceaseless arguments are bound to happen.
4. Mentally stable
Does your partner talk sense and sane ? Will he/she prove to be a good father or a mother ? Will he/she be able to take sound decisions? Do they have that inbuilt sense of discerning ? Ponder on these questions and try to get a mentally stable person.
3. Intellect levels
This one is my all time favorite. Lol, I would certainly want an intellectual and a wise man for nothing excites me as high as the intellect can! Anyways coming back to the point, ensure that your partner is well read, qualified enough, has writing skills, can present himself/herself effectively, is aware of the surrounding and knows what rocks the universe.
2. Responsibility factor
Marriage is a huge social responsibility thus ensure that your partner is able to meet all the responsibilities he/she is entrusted with upon his/her shoulders.
1. A good parent
Why did I mention all the above #10 to #9 points ? The answer is simple; because I, if go personally, spitball all the time, that my guy has to have all the aforementioned qualities, not for me but for the kids that we will raise in the future. Lol, I know it’s too much of future planning…:p but yet I took this opportunity to pen my heart down on the topic wedding, something which is not on the cards for the next 7 years…:p
Nevertheless it was for you folks. Stay super happy.
