What makes someone marriage material?

I think it’s really interesting that the happy couples I know admit that they did not foresee marriage when they first met. I even remember one couple saying they downright disliked each other upon introduction!

If you can go from utter dislike to tumbling head over heels, I’d say that’s proof positive that we don’t always know what we are looking for in a future partner. Even if we claim to know what makes someone marriage material, would we be able to tell if someone had it or not?

I used to think that anyone who desires to be married is marriage material! Do you think it’s that simple, though?

How do you know if you are marriage material? How do your ideas about love, marriage and what you expect from them play a role in all of this?

2C: I agree but if a dude or chick aren’t right and can’t give a child what they need then they should step aside. By the same token, if they have corrected themselves and are now in a position to contribute positively to their then they should be afforded the opportunity. Like my paw-paw use to say about kids “catch and release boy, catch and release”.

Slim – Actually that reminded me of this little stunt I pulled in 3rd grade.

There were 2 kids in my class that had to move away. I was jealous of all the attention showered on them. So I came to school and told everyone I was moving! After a few days I told them my parents changed their mind. :lol:

LOL Leggs, I am just trying to help Slim out with her condition. She thought her CT was giving birth when in actuality it was just pooting.

Yes I have acres and mounds of stored up knowledge of stuff folks would wander why do I know that. I just like knowing stuff. LOL

I would say two realtors is unnecessary, because they use the same sources to find the homes they show you.
