Choose your partner carefully because from this decision you will have either happiness or misery.
The first thing to bear in mind when you choose a partner is that you are choosing many things: your intimate partner; your talking buddy; your eating companion; your parenting partner; your career counselor; your travel, leisure, and retirement friend; and someone you will see when you are in your best and bad moods.
Being aware of that is like being aware of what you want to go into, and it will serve as a guide in any decision you want to take.
