Is GOOD LOOKS really important in relationships?
This little question will open door for a wide discussion for relationship experts as well as people who make physical appearance a first priority in relationships. There are deep questions to be asked to ourselves.
Life is a (personal) journey.
Every individual has their own perspective, desires, must have traits, and beliefs with regard to what is important to (them) when it comes to choosing a mate and sustaining a relationship.
For some people beauty plays a major part, for others it may be education and financial stability, and for most people personality and compatibility are a factor.
Having said that most people actually do want to be physically attracted to their mate and also would (hope) that their mate is physically attracted to them as well.
Thankfully "beauty is in the eye of the beholder".
We live on a planet with over (7 Billion) people on it which means odds are no matter what physical attributes one has there are bound to be people who are attracted to them.
Simply take a trip to any public area whether it be a mall, movie theatre, grocery store, park, beach, amusement park, church, or wherever and you're likely to see people of all shapes, sizes, races, and various other distinguishing features with their significant other or spouses. The reality is the world is not filled with mostly "9s and 10s" in the beauty department.
Nevertheless everyone is entitled to have his or her "preferences" when it comes to selecting a mate as well as (their belief) of what is important to maintain a happy relationship.
Only that individual knows what makes (them) happy.
Interestingly most of us tend to (evolve over time) with regard to our priorities.
A "must have" today may not be nearly as important to us 5 or 10 years from now.

On one side of the coin looks are important, I firmly believe you have to be attracted to your partner sexually, but at the same time I find an intelligent woman to be very sexy indeed.
