Choosing the life partner
Quality to Be Sought in a Prospective Husband
Before giving her hand in marriage, every woman should inquire whether he with whom she is about to unite her destiny is worthy. What has been his past record? Is his life pure? Is the love which he expresses of a noble, elevated character, or is it a mere emotional fondness? Has he the traits of character that will make her happy? Can she find true peace and joy in his affection? Will the judgment and conscience be surrendered to the control of her husband? Can she honor the Savior’s claims as supreme? Will body and soul, thoughts and purposes, be preserved pure and holy? There questions have a vital bearing upon the well-being of every woman who enters the marriage relation. AH pp.61 Chap.9
God Forbids Believers Marrying Unbelievers.-
Let a young woman accept as a life companion only one who possesses pure, manly traits of character, one who is diligent, aspiring, and honest, and one who loves and fears God. Shun those who are irreverent. Shun one who is a lover of idleness; shun the one who is a scoffer of hallowed things. Avoid the society of one who uses profane language, or is addicted to the use of even one glass of liquor. Listen not to the proposals of a man who has no realization of his responsibility to God. The pure truth which sanctifies the soul will give you courage to cut yourself loose from the most pleasing acquaintance whom you know does not love and fear God, and know nothing of the principles of true righteousness.
