One day, a ten-year-old boy went to an ice cream shop, sat at a table and asked the waitress, “How much is an ice-cream cone?” She said, “seventy-five cents.” The boy started counting the coins he had in his hand. Then he asked how much a small cup of ice-cream was. The waitress impatiently replied, “sixty five cents.” The boy said, “I will have the small ice-cream cup.” He had his ice-cream, paid the bill and left. When the waitress came to pick up the empty plate, she was touched. Underneath were ten onecent coins as tip. The little boy had consideration for the waitress before he ordered his ice-crearn. He showed sensitivity and caring. He thought of others before himself.
Choosing your life partner — the person you want to spend the rest of your days with — is one of the most important decisions you’ll make in your life.
Living most of your life with the person you love can be a joyous, mutually-fulfilling experience, but finding and choosing the right person can be a monumental task.
Luckily, it’s something that most people go through, so you’re not alone people who have never been married and never want to be married amount to only 5% of the total population.
By having a realistic idea of the kind of person that is right for you, making a strong effort to find this person, and committing to your relationship, you too can share the rest of your life with someone you love.
When choosing your life partner, remember that this is the most important decision of your lifetime.
The marriage relationship offers 90% of all your support, happiness and fulfillment so choose it wisely.
Consider qualities such as affection, sense of humor, intelligence, integrity, maturity, temperament, compatibility and that indescribable characteristic of chemistry.
If these are present, your relationship stands an excellent chance of great success.
Move slowly and let no one press you into an uncomfortable decision.
