True and lasting relationships are based on observable complementary factors. Love is more than an accidental choice. The sharing of common interests and goals is fairly obvious. Also family systems, language, social status and how individual traits meld together, all work to make a relationship positive.
With divorce affecting more than 50% of the population, real understanding of what makes a marriage work surely has to be a priority in all our lives. Separation and divorce have negative effects on our individual lives and especially on our children. Yet most people spend more time researching a new model car than really trying to understand what makes a potential partner worthwhile pursuing.
"How To Choose Your Life Partner" is not an abstract sociological text, it is a workbook to keep referring to as a guide to a worthwhile personal relationship. Each chapter has a questionaire to assist in understanding yourself and a potential partner. It is possible to estimate if a particular relationship is likely to be positive or is better avoided. Coping with the stress of work and family is easier if partners share a common understanding.
Romantic love is still possible but Derek Rintel's contention is that lasting affection is based on our physical appeal and behavior and is not a mere accident. There are many possible partners for everyone, the difficulty is in choosing which one will fulfill most or all of one's expectations. Unfortunately, neither parents nor teachers seem well informed on this most important factor in daily life. Is not time that schools taught children how couples and families work?
