What to look for in a partner - W. E. Allen

Young man, do you love a young woman because she is good and kind? Do you love her sweet voice? Do you love her because she is a devoted Christian, so eager to serve God? Do you love her because she has compassion for those in trouble? Do you love her because she has a quick mind, and because there is real laughter and light in her eyes? Do you love her because she has real Christian virtues?
If so, that is the kind of love that will lead to a happy marriage.

Young woman, do you love your intended husband because he is strong, because he is brave, because he is sensible? Does he have the kind of character you would admire in your own brother or father? Does he seem to you the wisest young fellow you ever saw? Are you proud of his Christian character, his faithful, clean life, ambitions and plans for the future?
If so, then that is the kind of love upon which the happiest marriages are built.

Make sure that your love is a love of character, a love of personality, not just natural attraction.
