Singles, let me ask you a question? How will you know when the right person comes along? How will you know that he or she is the person you are to marry? Will you be blinded by their good looks or beauty? Will money play a part in swaying you? Will you be influenced by the car they drive or where they live? Honestly, I think we can all be vulnerable to the externals. So how do we keep our head on straight when we meet someone and really seek to know if they are the one?
Try this. Make yourself a list of all the things that are important to you in a future mate. Spend time making the list. Update it as needed. Your list should contain all the qualities that are very important to you. It should contain the essentials you want in a marriage partner. Now comes the tough part. When you meet someone and you like them, get out your ‘essentials’ checklist. Think about the person you are dating as you go over your list. If they match up - great. If they do not - get out. The sooner the better. This may seem harsh but it could save you from all kinds of pain. An ‘awesome marriage’ starts with two ‘awesome people’. Anything less will only bring misery.
