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 remember when ARed first started blogging. I interpreted one of her initial posts the wrong way and she let me have it…and she still lets me have it on occasion. (lol)

I’m reading…I was contemplating if it would be tacky to jump in on the “ARed rubs me the wrong way, then again it could be me” convo but I opted not :)

Think I’ll get a tongue thrashing? It’s okay if she does, I’m acquiring a taste as well

So you decided to dig up a number you think is mine and to call it randomly?

You know they’re be an easier, less creepy way to do that right? :?

IMO the 2 major things that makes someone marriage material are: you can spend long periods of time with them doing nothing in peace AND can make decisions with them and be on the same page about most of the small things, big things and in-between things.
