What do you hope for in your children's future partner?

Maybe it's this site and all the stories of women abused, mistreated, cheated on, etc., maybe it's the fact that I have daughters, but the type of person they end up with is something that crosses my mind from time to time. Perhaps it's a fear that is further amplified by watching my 17 year old sil dating a 29 year old, who is currently in jail. I'm just curious about others and if this is a common concern.

Do you hope your son(s) marry a woman like you, your daughter(s) a man like their father?

I honestly just want my girls to end up with someone who makes them happy, treats them good, and brings out the best in them. What my hubby and I have isn't perfect, but it does work well. We are total opposites, but it is what makes us work. I always say it sounds corny, but we really do complete each other. Each of us possesses what the other lacks.

Choosing a partner is one of the biggest decisions in life. I just want them to make a good one.

So, how about you ladies?

Why worry about the living kids when we are so busy arguing about the aborted ones...

I've never really thought about it. I have boys. I know they will grow up to be good men and treat women great and respect them. I'm confident that they will attract the right type of woman :)

I pray my children are loved, respected and honored in their marriages. I hope my dd does not grow up to marry a man like her father and that my son becomes the man of God who provides for his family.
I want my children to be happy, cared for, caring and equal in their relationships.

Equality! That's a good one. Very true though. A marriage is a partnership, not a dictatorship.

Considering what your children see and will continue to see they will go after women just like you. They will find women who will walk all over them and cheat on them and break their hearts.

I would try to aim higher for my children if I were you.
