Would you rather marry someone you love, or someone that loved you?

I spent 12 years in a marriage where I didn't love my partner, though he did love me. On the opposite side of the fence, I had a long relationship with somebody many years ago who I lived to bits, but he didn't love me. Both of them were recipes for disaster, so for the future, I am either choosing to remain solo in life, or if I did meet somebody and want to settle down again, the love thing would have to be reciprocal - e.g. he'd have to love me and I'd have to love him, both equally.

This is a tough one because I want the love both ways. Since I can't have it that way I would rather be loved then love them. I say this because I know I will be loved and taken care of in a way a man who didn't love me wouldn't care. The man who loves me and marries me will always be there for me know matter what. At least I would hope so.
