What is the most important character trait you look for in a spouse?
Everyone has a different opinion on what is most important in your spouse or significant other. I want to know what you look for when beginning a new relationship or furthering a current relationship.
Someone who is as productive as I am, someone who sets goals and plans things, no guess work. Funny that is not what I married.
To me loyalty is the most important because it encompasses many other things like being honest and being supportive. Loyalty will help someone look past imperfections, make a person tell the truth even when it is hard, and help with communication when they may not feel like communicating. Being loyal to someone requires a lot of work and effort. If someone is willing to do all that then they are worth my time.
Happiness and laughter. If she has that, everything else falls into place.
Trustworthiness... without that a relationship is doomed to failure. I need a man I can depend on... no matter what else is going on in our lives.
Love. Love and love. Without which the marital relationship is nothing but a tasteless dish.
Initially it would be mutual physical attraction and chemistry.
Without those two things I'm not likely to ask a woman out. Once you get to know someone you want to make sure you share the same values, want the same things for a marriage, naturally agree on how to obtain those things, and last but not least there is a mutual love and desire for one another.
Everything (begins) with the initial attraction. It's been said:
"Men fall in love with their eyes and women fall in love with their ears. However with age comes wisdom. Men learn everything that glitters is not gold and women learn that actions speak louder than words!"
Like attracts like in the long-term and opposites attract divorce attorneys!
I would look for capabilities. I would choose my partner if he has goals and know what he really wants from life.
