Your partner (would-be spouse) should be your best friend.
He/she should be someone you can freely communicate with.
Someone you don't have to pretend to. You don't have to claim to be a perfectionist when with him or her.
Someone who can correct you in love.
Someone who add values to you and your greatest cheerleader.
If you are in a relationship with someone you can't confidently share ideas and your feelings with, start to build genuine friendship.
Failure to build friendship means you will be marrying a TOTAL STRANGER. And, that's the beginning to the end of that marriage.
Please, never let desperation lead you into marrying a complete stranger. How long will you pretend? Certainly not forever.
Remember, it's not just about getting married. But, MARRYING RIGHT and STAYING MARRIED.
To your relationship success.
