1. Do you make one another laugh?

Laughter is the best medicine, and you’ll need a lot of it in marriage. Do you find yourself laughing a lot with this person? Do you try to make them smile just as much as they make you smile? Can they laugh at themselves? All these questions will help you know whether spending eternity with this person would be joyful or stressful.

2. Do you learn from one another? 

Do you learn important life lessons from your loved one? Just as important as the first question may be a second: are you each teachable, humble, and willing to learn? By the same token, make sure that you let your loved one learn things on their own. Don’t jump in and accomplish the task for them, or you may end up with a husband that doesn’t actually know which button to push on the washing machine or a wife that could never fix a toilet.

I'm a single mom of 2: a Southern CA native, who transplanted to Utah 4 years ago. I have one 18 year old who is off to the Ivy League, and one 14 year old who is in high school. I served an LDS Mission to Southern France and I’ve also lived in the San Francisco Bay Area, Idaho, Northern Arizona, and New Hampshire. I love 80’s music, classical music, choral music, playing the piano, singing, speaking what French I still remember, and talking about history and music with whomever will listen. I love that my kids are better at math than I was at their age. (But they still get frequent historical references from me…anyone familiar with Ducky from NCIS? He’s that kind of medical examiner, I’m that kind of mom.) My kids also think I know all the lyrics to all the songs from the 80’s, mainly because I’m good at making them up and faking it when I don’t know. Sometimes they catch me. I’m currently disabled with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). I want to get better (of course) and be an advocate for trauma survivors and others with mental illnesses. I like people in general. I suffer from the delusion that I can make everyone my friend, but of course that isn’t possible: but I still believe that the world can be a better place.
