There is nothing better than having the absolute piece of mind that  you’re marrying the correct person, but how do you know what ‘works’ for you?

  1. Find someone who you can connect with easily
    It is very important to choose somebody who you can easily strike a conversation with. This way, you can enjoy doing things and talking about them together without getting bored.
  1. Potential partner with same interests
    Selecting someone who shares a lot of common interests with you will work in your favour. Remember that all your interests don’t really have to be the same, but some would do. Says clinical psychologist and relationship expert Seema Hingorrany, “When you decide to spend your life with someone, you must look at things that the two of you would love to do together. For example, if you are a movie buff, you would ideally like to be with someone who enjoys movies as well. This will make your life interesting.”
  1. Consider your partner’s intellect
    If you are a laid-back person and your partner is an over-achiever, that could lead to a threat in your marriage. You must see eye to eye on how both of you are able to think and process things.
  1. It’s okay to have standards
    While choosing a life partner, you need to consider your standards as well as those of your family. Though it’s okay to choose someone who probably does not belong to the same strata of society as yours, make sure that he/she’s not completely off the mark.
  1. You should have respect for one another
    You obviously cannot spend your life with someone who has no respect for you or your dreams/goals or your personality. So, choose someone who will acknowledge you for the rest of your life.
  1. Is your potential partner trustworthy?
    In this day and age, it is extremely important to choose someone you can trust. You definitely cannot lead a happy marriage if you cannot trust each other or have faith.
  1. Spend time together
    Just as important as it is to have similar interests, it is also crucial to be with someone who gives you enough time and who you would love to spend time with.

Relationships are complex and there is no quick fix quiz that will be a blanket guide to choosing the right marriage partner.  Do remember that these are just a few pointers to help nudge you in the right direction, the rest is up to you!
