Something you definitely want to look for in a spouse is somebody that you can have fun with and who shares some of your interests.

A lot of couples have many diverse interests, but don’t have any that they share together. Others get caught up in the daily grind of making a living and handling the responsibilities of life and don’t know how to take time to just have fun.  

Realize this, God wants you to enjoy life and not just endure life! In fact, the Bible says that God “richly and ceaselessly provides us with everything for [our] enjoyment (1 Timothy 6:17 AMPC). And Jesus said in John 10:10 (AMPC) that He came that we might “have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). 

So, when it comes to marriage, if you’re going to spend the rest of your life with someone, you might want to pick someone who you enjoy hanging out with. Certainly, they need to be saved, have a good spiritual relationship with God, be well-groomed, and hardworking, but if you can’t have fun with this person, you might want to think twice about marrying them. You’re not marrying a business associate. You’re marrying a lifetime mate. So, make sure they’re someone you can enjoy life with! 

The Take Away:

Some questions to ask before you get married: Are you good friends? Do you love being with each other and hanging out together? Do you have fun together? Do you have shared interests or hobbies that you do together? When was the last time you did one of your hobbies/shared interests together? When you’re not together, do you miss being together?
