This is an example response to the question.
In my view three characteristics are essential for a marriage partner. Compatibility is very important, because spending the rest of your life with someone is a huge commitment, and without compatibility in values and interests, and goals, it could be a struggle rather than a partnership. I also think that a good marriage partner should fit into your family. Without accceptance and affection for you as a couple, you could risk the relationship you have with family members. And attraction is another factor. Since fidelity is part of a marriage contract, the expression of love will be limited to your partner, so it should be a person you are attracted to.
