  • Draw a van diagram in your journal and write
    characteristics of an ideal date/bf/gf on one
    side, and the other side characteristics of a
    future husband or wife. The center is for
    similarities in both.
  • Now, go over each characteristics you have wrote
    and put a check next to those you would be
    willing to give up, circle those you might bend
    on, and put a start next to those you would never
    give up in a mate.

    turn-offs and aspects in a mate you know you
    definitely do not want or know would not work out
    in a relationship.

C) Statistics Say -a difference in age is probably not what determines the success or failure of a marriage. D) Greatest Success -those who wait until their late 20s any early 30s for marriage are most likely not to end in a divorce.
