Luck is a very important

Luck is a very important factor in successful relationships. We all want someone who is the right gender, age, has compatiable religious and political beliefs, who is emotionally healthy and will approach relationship challenges in a mature, non-disfunctional manner (assuming we also approach these issues in a non-disfuncitonal manner), does not have substance abuse or lying issues, shares personal instrests, life goals, appeals to us sexually AND we appeal sexually to the other person.

That's a lot to ask for, and in my 50 years I'm not sure I met anyone who had each of those qualities, through I've seen each of those qualities in various people who did not have other qualities listed. What most people do is marry someone with just SOME of those qaulities and hope they can work it out. This is what keeps marriage consolers and divorce lawyers in business.
