An Employer and a Life Partner

| November 27, 2017

When seeking a job opportunity in a company or a life partner, a majority of them accept a job based on compensation or choose a life-partner based on qualifications, salary or physical features. However, there are many a factors that need to be sought and understood before one decides to choose an employer and a life-partner:

The following are some of the major qualities that employees look for among the best employers:

  • Attitude and Ethics
  • Business Culture
  • Compensation
  • Customer Satisfaction
  • Employee Satisfaction
  • Goals
  • Integrity
  • Leadership
  • Mutual Respect
  • Opportunity
  • Reliability
  • Security
  • Stability
  • Strong Values and Beliefs
  • Work Environment

Selecting a marriage partner is a permanent decision, a choice that “affects the afterlife both in this world and in the world to come. A number of individuals select a life companion with less thought than they use in buying fruits and vegetables or purchasing a house or an automobile. They do not know what characteristics are needed for a successful family. They are ignorant of the enduring qualities so essential for a happy home.

In choosing a companion with similar interests we must not include certain physical characteristics that have no affect whatsoever on the marriage. Individual differences of color, height etc. should not be confused with the major interests of life such as:

  • Emotionally Balanced
  • Good Character
  • Good Social background
  • Has Empathy
  • Is Honest
  • Is Intelligent
  • Mature and not just grown up
  • Open and non-defensive
  • Respectful
  • Sense of Humor
  • Values
  • Common Interests

Decisions made every day such as which toothpaste, soap, and dress to use or which restaurant to visit may not impact the whole life. However, some major decisions as to which company or companion is most suitable shouldn’t be made in a haste.

Do you think that most marriage proposals are finalized based on the above factors and attributes? If not why?
