How did you know that your relationship with your partner/spouse had a future?

I met my husband through a singles newspaper, he drove 6 hours for our first date. What really impressed me though was that my sister's cat, who hid from everybody, and never would make eye contact, came running up and jumped on his lap. Animals know good people.

i think if you bring/offer your relationship to God and live in God's word then you'll know that it will last.

That is a good question Gerty. This man has stood by me and accepts me for who I am. I had never met anyone like that before meeting him.

My hsubnd's attitude matches his blood type--be positive. He is pretty patient with me, and a lot of fun. I just wish he was rich.lol!

Everyone in my family liked my husband. This had happened before, like when I was 16, but since then. My mom told me that if I didn't marry him, she was going to divorce my dad and marry him herself.

Humm, I met my husband where I worked, he kept askin me out, i kept sayin no. Although I thought he was a dream! But hated where he worked and thought he must be a jerk like the rest of the men there. But then I totaled my car and needed a ride, he gave me his # and came picked me up and brought me home every day for a week. He lived 5 minutes from his job. I lived like 20 minutes 1 way, out of the way. At the end of the week he ask for a kiss and was just a quick inocent one. But the following week, he held my hand every day on the way there and back. He was like 41 I was like 27. I thought that was so sweet and had to know more and have him! lol

That is romantic. I know it is easy to judge people by their surroundings. Sometimes more mature men are just what we ladies are looking for. Thanks for the response.
