Becoming The Right Person for Marriage

Marriage is not something to be entered into lightly. It is the beginning of a new family, but many people never stop to consider that fact. Marriage "snippets" like a 72 day long commitment, or lack there of, as in the Kardashian marriage have become so common that the true essence of life-long commitment gets lost in the process. However, part of the issue is as much about becoming the type of person that can sustain marriage, whether the going gets rough or not, than only in finding "Mr. or Miss Right." The type of marriage that grows strong and lasts is the type that has both individuals fully committed due to an inherent character trait that has been developed over time. You do not have to be perfectly polished to be married, or there would be no marriages, but you do have to have the basics in line....what type of person do you want to be? What type of person you must be, to be a great husband or wife that commits for life-long love, AND what type of person your potential spouse must be, depends much on the internal character traits you both possess as you venture to start a "new family unit."

  1. This is so true! Both partners have to work at it and be willing to be open to each other and each other's needs.
