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?

I was late learning BMW was actually Staceye…..

Well…I’m looking for a great deal…and am prepared to be a bit patient for one.

Looking to stay on the southwest side of town, but will consider other areas ITP or *just* outside. Aaaannnddd….TheDude is strong on having at 4side brick with a basement. Whereas I want something with an open floor plan and in a neighborhood that I can run in.

All for a player price. Looking at REOs or for an extremely motivated seller with a well kept property. Something pretty much move-in ready, but at best needing few cosmetic changes (paint, carpet).

I would think looking for a great deal is a given. :lol: But if you’re willing to be patient, you only need one realtor. IMO.

Oh, well when you’re ready to chose, you’ll often sign an agreement giving one of them exclusivity anyway.

I did have a non-exclusive agreement with my first realtor, and that’s why she got fired. There is no incentive to put in extra work when you could just end up finding a place on your own or going with someone else.

AmazonR, I didn’t annouce it, Toucan did.

So I’m confused. 2Can, how am I on the “slow” bus if she hasn’t told folks? I guess you mean she’s been dropping subliminal hints for a while now or something?

SCool – I think the problem with you calling her out was the fact that you came back to the blog to do so. And it was just kind of random when you went in on her.

But I laughed. :lol:

But…I have to say, that I didn’t think that I *went in” on her. In fact, I remember saying that I liked her, that she was a bit dinghy (ditzy), but that I liked her. I think she is a cute, little beige-ish chick.
