I have learned that it is very important for me that the man in my life be a practicing Catholic and not simply Catholic because there is a difference. I would want my future spouse to have at least the same degree of devotion to the Catholic faith as I do.

Faithfulness for me is the first and most important criteria for a lasting relationship. We have to get to know each other long enough for me to see, based on her behavior and her reflexes, that she is an honest person that will be faithful to any man she is emotionally involved with. Once we start meeting each other (ideally as simple friends) hopefully I will be able to see if she is a respectful lady and if there can be a bond between us that will make both of us feel for each other, look out for each other. Then and only then would I look at her physical appearance, and only if she is very obese would that be an obstacle. If she meets all those criteria and she is in my age bracket (between 40 and 53), then that's all I need, and I would pursue her. I think that I am very reasonable and many women meet all of those criteria hands down. Obviously, for all this to work, she must not have selection criteria that are so tough and so numerous that they eliminate 99.99% of the male population.

Must be religious, Catholic is preferred. No drugs, doesn't smoking. I feel that a single person wouldn't understand the affects that divorce leaves on a persons life. And who knows what it is like to raise a child on their own with dealing with the in laws and the true dedication it took to send a child to Catholic school. Arlene

Honesty and Trust are first choices. Communication is key. Being supportive of one another, and being"there" for each other. Sharing each others stories, (whether good or bad), helping each other with work to be done at home. Respecting each others' opinions, and allowing each other to be their "own" individual, while the two are entertaining the thought of becoming "one".

Commitment to the sacrament of marriage. You have to go into the marriage giving everything you have to make sure your partner is loved unconditionally. To many people look for that one reason to call it quits rather than trying to fix it or notice the thousands of other reasons to keep it going. I think society in general puts to much pressure on a young couple. Financial is the worst. And with today's electronic communication network, it's easy to find a fix for whatever you may be missing in the relationship. But what I think mostly is a cause is lack of attention and the desire to be appreciated. That comes from watching all these crappy shows on tv that show nothing but ignorance and humiliation of anyone for a laugh. Don't be so demanding as well. Work it out and find a happy medium by sitting down and talking.

Must be a Real Practicing Catholic not a fanatic or a smorgasboard Catholic!
Don't smoke it's like licking an ashtray that you will spend your retirement money on to buy for oxygen tanks for till they die! Don't drink too much to the point of being abnoxious or dancing on table with glee!
Has sucessfully raised and is connected to his children so he can understand parenthood and appreciate all that comes and goes with it at a personal level.
For God's sake take at least one bath/shower everyday and brush your teeth so you can be kissed and touched regularly!

I am interested in how the man lives his life. How does he relates to his family of origin, children, friends and co-workers. Are our goals compatible. I have learned why my previous marriage failed, faced my part, and made some changes. I hope to find someone who has learned from their mistakes and continues to make personal improvements.
