RELATIONSHIP TIPS – LOOK FOR SOMEONE WITH SIMILAR VALUES
“For long-lasting love, the more similar you are with your partner (e.g., age, education, values, personality, hobbies), the better. Partners should be certain that their values match before entering into a lifetime commitment (marriage).
Although other differences can be accommodated and tolerated, a difference in values is particularly problematic if the goal is long-lasting love.
Another secret for a long marriage: Both partners needs to commit to making it work, no matter what. The only thing that can break up a relationship are the partners themselves.”
