Factors to Consider in Choosing a Lifetime Partner

Updated on June 19, 2013

Factors to Consider in Choosing a Lifetime Partner and the Responsibilities Attached to It

Love constitutes an awareness of the basic elements which will enable a couple to decipher if the feeling is genuine or mature love. Sometimes it happens suddenly, to some it takes a lot of effort to win the one he/she loves.

In the process of knowing, selecting, respecting and accepting one's mate, consider the following factors:

1. Physical attractiveness - one's intuition in the unique characteristics or traits

2. Propinquity or nearness - doing things together

3. Basic similarities - similarity in race, social status, religion and others

4. Common interest - enjoying common activities, set of standards in life

5. Reciprocal Feelings - attracted to each other

6. Practicality - practical selection because of preferences

Attached to it are the responsibilities the couple is expected to follow.

1. Be honest and frank in expressing issues and values.

2. Trust and loyalty in the relationship.

3. Accept and respect each other for who they are to make the relationship stronger.

4. Listen openly when one is expressing disagreement.

      I agree with all except the race. Race does not need to be a common factor.
