Many people dreaming about starting a great family would usually speak of what their ideal man or woman is. Some would say, they want an understanding, responsible man for a husband or a wise and diligent woman for a wife. They would even describe how their family would run and start dreaming away... Instead, wouldn't it be better if they prepare themselves on becoming a good spouse. It's so easy for people to look for what they like in a partner but never actually consider if they would be good partners themselves. So instead of actually waiting for the Mr/Miss Right, cultivate in yourself good traits that would actually make you a good partner. For sure, when you're really prepared, the right person would come along...^^

you've got a point there..having a great family is between husband's and wive's only, one great assistance is from God, so start you're relationship in a God centered relationship not just the two of you.. because from God everything is possible.. few people meets their ideal husband/wife and marry.. but having an ideal family is a gift from up above that partners with good faith can receive it..

You are right. If both the partners would think more about what they should be like rather than how the other partner should be, there would be more happier spouses and less breakups.
