Decades of radio counseling, personal experience, and public and private discussions about marriage prompt me to write this list of questions for anyone contemplating marriage. Is the person your best friend or at least becoming so? This is probably the single most overlooked question among couples, especially young ones. Many people cannot not answer this in the affirmative. Over time, friendship is the greatest bond between a couple. One of the most devastating ideas of the last generation was that needing or depending upon another person is a sign of weakness. The inability to need is a sign of weakness -- you are afraid to relinquish power or afraid to be hurt. Nearly always, a woman who dates a man who meets the criteria listed here can grow to find him sexually attractive.

But if you cannot say that the person you are considering marrying has become or is becoming your best friend, you need to figure out why before you decide to marry. As great as the sex may be (and great sex certainly adds to a marriage), even Hugh Hefner spends the vast majority of time doing other things. This sounds trite, but enjoying each other may actually be the single most important characteristic of a happy marriage. Dating for marriage is not an interview for a platonic best friend.

If the person you marry does not become your best friend, you will either seek someone who will be or simply drift apart. Someone you can and do tell just about everything to. If that were not the case, the majority of men would never attract a woman. Most men become physically attractive to a woman thanks to other, masculine, qualities that they possess.

As essential as being best friends and enjoying each other are, there should be a physical component to your relationship.
