When it comes to finding your spouse, it's important to focus on finding the person who has what you want in a husband or wife. But how do you know what's superficial requirement and what's an important trait? Here is one list we found. Do you agree?
Everyone has a dating list of things they are looking for. Some lists are good, some are awful. I have talked with girls who have admitted they’d turn down a good guy if he was shorter than they are. Or if he was not a pre-med student. And I have met guys who would never date a girl if she was not unhealthily skinny. Or if she was not an RM. Instead of focusing on what you should NOT include in your lists I want to focus on 5 things every Mormon should have on their dating list.
*It is important to remember that these attributes and characteristics are developed over time. Do not be unrealistic and expect someone who is perfect in all of these things. Instead look for someone who exhibits them, strives for them, and works towards them.
“I suggest that you not ignore many possible candidates who are still developing these attributes, seeking the one who is perfected in them. You will likely not find that perfect person, and if you did, there would certainly be no interest in you. These attributes are best polished together as husband and wife.”
~Elder Richard G. Scott
