My Perfect Partner in Married Life
Choosing my perfect partner in life takes a lot of prayers and considerations.I dont like to rush or feel desperately alone and marry the wrong kind of person for the wrong reasons --only to regret it later.Nothing should be more important to me and the person I marry than my spiritual well-being.Foremost that I will consider is she should be a believer and a follower of Christ.She's a worshipper and with a heart after God.I believe that spiritual compatibility is important in marriage.

How Can I Know Who To Marry
She was young and beautiful, and had grown up in a small town. He was wealthy, an only child, 40 years old, and worked his father's livestock business. Their homes were separated by more than 400 miles, and their eyes had never met before the day they became man and wife.

An old man, a long-time employee of the groom's father, acted as a matchmaker. On the day he arrived in the young woman's town, he walked up to her, asked her a few questions, talked to her relatives, and then knew that she was the one to marry his employer's son. This old man "popped the question" to her father and then made arrangements to take her back for the marriage--and she willingly went!

The bride and groom were Rebekah and Isaac. The Genesis 24 account of what led up to their marriage offers an unusual example of how God can lead two people together. Although it would probably be inappropriate to try to follow every detail of their example today, the fascinating account of Abraham's matchmaking activity presents several sound principles that can be applied to how we decide who to marry in our day and in our culture.

In this study, therefore, we will refer to the story of Isaac and Rebekah. In fact, before you read any further, it would be well for you to open your Bible and read Genesis 24, looking for principles that could be…...

My Perfect Mate

...My Perfect Mate My perfect mate would be a girl that has the same interests as me. She would be into watching movies, athletics, and trying to help out others. The girl I would want would probably be much different than any that my parents would chose for me. My parents would want me to be with a girl that is educated, well off financially, and friendly. I don’t think I would let my parents chose a girl for me though, since that would be the girl that they would want, not the one that I am looking for. She’d be a brunette or blonde girl around the same age as me. She would be into the same things as me, like hiking, watching movies, mountain biking, and playing games. My perfect mate would be somewhat educated, so I wouldn’t have to making all the money for our household. I would want a girl that is athletic, so that she would work out with me, like taking morning jogs and walks. I would prefer her to be pretty.

They would want me to find a girl who is educated, well mannered, and friendly.

My Perfect Society

... My Perfect Society In todays society we face through many obstacles it might good or bad, but we have a choice whether that obstacles we make can end up to be. Our society is based by people’s interactions with others in a group of people. During the Industrialization period, machines were invented to create mass productions. The people in the south were moving to the north and it became more populated, but not very environmentally safety. This is an example how the north became to develop creating a society in which people were attracted to. If I would stop and think in how my world would be if I made it better? I most certainly want a peaceful world were no violence would be allowed and I would fear about my safety and grow old with my family with no worries. My dream world would be about zero social structures and about who’s rich or not. I fell if we didn’t have no class structure then no one would be discriminated by how low your income is and no one will be put first by preferences. Racism would also be excluded because I fell that many people that come to this country wants to fell welcome and have the American dream like any one else but certain people is society lack of knowledge think its funny to judge people by the way they look or speak. This is what makes America its diversity and culture. What I find most alienating especially in New York City we tend to have the fast life were we never stop we always walking...

My Life

...My Life As I Know It 3 As I sit here and think about what to write down on this paper, I came to the conclusion that everyone has their own perspective on what their life was like. My life was no where perfect. I lived in a home with one parent, my life was a struggle. However, as I grown as an adult I have learned the importance of a good education and being a positive, supportive parent to my children as my mother was with me. My mother was a hard working parent, raising three children all on her own. My dad walked out of our life when I was 7 years old. My mom would struggle to make end meet, she only made $250 a week, that wasn’t enough to feed a family of four and pay bills as well. But, she was a strong woman; she didn’t let that stop her, my mother picked up another job to help us get by. There were many of times we hardly ever saw my mother, my oldest brother Ricky who was 11 years old at the time, help my mother out by watching me and my little brother while she worked. I can remember it like yesterday, before she would leave for work, she would call us down to the table and say “make sure you eat all your food before leaving today, because a starving brain will not function properly. Today I make sure I send my children off to school with a good breakfast and positive message each morning to start their day out right. To me it’s important to stay positive because when children see and hear positive thing they tend to be positive as well. Some of the......

My Indolent Work Partner

I need to join this free term paper so that I can have something to add in our working bibliography. As much as I wanted to help people, I can’t because I have more challenges to answer… When you read this paper, I beg your pardon for wasting your time. I don’t intentionally do this. I hope that you could understand the deep situation that I am in now I need to pull all-nighters so that I could finish my baby thesis. I don’t even know why I agreed to have a partner when I fully know from the very beginning that that person can never truly help me accomplish our work. Well, I guess I believed that that person could help, but I’ve proven myself wrong. He seems to be really careless even if he fully know that our deadline would be tomorrow. As much as I want to remove the negative connotations of the people about that person, I can’t because that person had shown me his/her true color. That person is so indolent I want to scream to that person’s face and yell “Hey! You don’t deserve this! If ever I’ll get a flat 1 on this thesis, you have to beg for it!” Aww. . . I really, really hate this feeling of being used by somebody! Hmmph. . . Dear reader, I hope you don’t experience this on your own thesis....

The Loss of a Life Partner

...The Loss of a Life Partner The Loss of a Life Partner Introduction Feelings of loss are very personal because only the person involved in the loss knows what is significant to them. People commonly associate certain losses with strong feelings of grief. The solitude is always agonizing, especially for someone who has never lived alone. Many people lose their spouses each year. Because the modern society has few mourning rituals other than the memorial service, they may find themselves alone and disconsolate just when they are most in need of comfort. Different Kinds of Loss Loss of one’s partner can be due to various reasons including: • Death of a partner/Bereavement • Serious or dilapidating illness of a loved one If you—or your loved one—has become sick or injured, expect a number of physical, emotional and financial changes in your life. Coping with these changes can be very difficbrt, even overwhelming at times, but the following strategies may help: • Relationship breakup/Separation Relationship breakup. This involves losing a partner from a problematic relationship. Although it might seem easier to lose a partner when the relationship has been difficult or unsatisfying, the feelings of dissatisfaction can make the survivor vulnerable to guilt and second thoughts. When he/she remembers the best times of the relationship, self-blame can convince the individual that if he/she had done things differently, they could have had good times. The......

...| I Helped Make Him. He Is Perfect. | The Best Day of My Life | Jimmy Johnson 7/20/2013 | We awoke that morning like we have ever other day . We got out of bed wiped the sleep from our eyes and slowly made our way to the kitchen. I asked my wife if she wanted to go get some breakfast, knowing she didn’t want to cook and neither did I. “Sure”, my wife Catherine said. “Alright, let’s get dress and Ill load up the car and we will go.” I told her. We decided on just going to Big Boy’s because it was on the way. We ordered our food and made small talk while we waited for it to be brought to the table. “Do you think when our baby boy is born you will cry?” Catherine asked. I looked at her with a smile on my face and told her, “You know I don’t cry. Not that there is nothing wrong with that. I just don’t get emotional like that.” “I figure you would say that. Well I am probably going to cry just so you know”, she said back to me and then smiled. “I know you will, it’s going to be a great day.” Our food arrived and we sat there and ate. We were making more small talk both knowing that later that day she would be in labor, and it wasn’t going to be fun for her. Walking into the hospital knowing that in roughly 24 hours I would be responsible for another human beings life really hadn’t sunk in yet. My wife and I decided a week earlier after carefully consideration from her doctor that she would undergo a procedure to induce labor. ......

My Life

...My life of 34 years, have been filled with love, happiness, trusting friendships, and a little disappointment from myself. Growing up I had an imagination incorporated with dreams and the feeling that one day I will make a difference to people. I did not want to be famous, however, I had a groaning from inside that I will be important. My journey has taken me on many trips, befriended many, and accomplished some things I was ok with. In this brief summary of my life I will give great tribute to a humanistic psychologist named Abraham Maslow. When I read about him in my psychology class at Olive Harvey College when I was twenty years old his theory was interesting but was not understood at that time in my life. It was not until I was 33, enrolled in a beginners psychology course at Chicago state university, I finally payed attention to his theory of life. The self- actualization stage was where I was at in my life; this feeling inside me was the desire to full my life to its full potential. Becoming all I can be. I had a house, I bought on my own, a job at the University of Chicago for twelve years, and a well rounded well behaved daughter. That was not good enough. My thought was what’s a house? what’s a job? I can be more than a phlebotomist with an associate’s degree in child development. There have been many people who have shaped me thinking and the way I view the world. My mother was my primary caregiver .she married my father, unfortunately, was separated from him......

...face the biggest obstacle of my life, which also happens to be so central to my identity now. A perfect family, parents who provide unconditional love and acceptance, safety in one’s home-all of these things are expectations of society and outsiders often think that my success must stem from these things, but I know this is not always the case. Rejected by my family, I have found the strength to stay true to myself, complete my rigorous secondary education with honors, and remain resilient despite the hardships I have faced. My whole life it has been evident, although sometimes not always to me, that I was different. As I grew older, I began to realize what was ‘different’ about me. Something so small and miniscule in my eyes seemed to bother other immensely. Ironically enough this measly thing was something, I felt, I couldn’t discuss with any one, not even my own mother. I bit my tongue and endured through the physical pain of boys shoving me down in the dirt, the emotional pain of the name calling which seemed to hurt more, and worst of all the pain of hiding who I am from my friends and my family. So everyday in school was a battle, I became introverted due to the pain stricken within me by other students. I didn’t want to tell anybody how I felt and I wasn’t able to focus in my classes without worrying about someone trying to poke fun at me for who I am, which drastically effected my grades. When I received my progress report and saw my grades, I realized others......

Perfect Life

...“The secret to a perfect life is not just making money or possessing luxury objects, but is simply developing your inner self.” My Martial Arts instructor rambled on while my eyes grew teary and sleepiness began to overcome me. Little did I know that his quote about developing one’s inner self would cause such a profound impact in my life. When I was 12 years old, I joined a Martial Arts school. When I first joined, I never fully understood the connection between performing the arduous moves to the real world. I simply thought of Martial Arts as a way to learn cool moves shown throughout karate movies at the time. But as I progressed slowly – yet steadily – in my education in Martial Arts, I began to grasp the covert message. Practice. Patience. Persistence. These three values are the most important lessons Martial Arts have taught me. By practicing the punches and kicks continuously, my body begins to wear out and the thought of giving up becomes more appealing by the second. Yet I emerge persistent. By being persistent, I learn to not only endure the difficult workout in the Martial Arts, but also endure any future hardships. With practice, I have grown confident and strong, both mentally and physically. With the values that Martial Arts taught me, I will learned to be instrumental in my pursuit in learning different things in academics and in various cultures. I also learned the covert message to a perfect life: “developing my inner self.”...

In my family there are six of us. There’s my dad, Jose Luis Ramos, who I hate to say it, but I am just like him. My mom’s name is Rosa Imelda Ramos. She’s not the best, nor the most perfect, but nonetheless, I love her. I have an older brother whose name is Jose Angel Ramos. He sort of the black sheep of the family. He no longer lives with us but boy, how I miss those late-night McDonald’s runs. Next comes me. I don’t always like talking about myself or describing myself because I feel everyone has their own opinion as to “what you’re like.” After me comes my sister, Tiare Monique Ramos. She has quite an attitude, that one. I’ve grown to live with it. After her is my brother, Lineker Kothan Ramos. He’s a “mini-me” of my older brother and the silliest, most sensitive, non-filtered boy ever. Quite the family, huh? I am not married nor do I have any kids but I do have a loving man by my side. I met Ariel Madrid back in 2014 when my schedule in high school changed and I was moved into his chemistry class. Yes, this is the same Ariel Madrid that sits right next to me in class.

Characteristics of a Life Partner

...Many people have different ideas of the characteristics of a life partner. A successful relationship is characterized by three main essentials of trust, respect, and chemistry. Without these three qualities, we strongly believe a relationship cannot succeed. Trusting someone is not as easy as it seems. Honesty, support, and being faithful to your partner are keys to a trust worthy relationship. Being honest and truthful to someone shows that you can be open and bring out your real personality. After all, a partner will respect honesty. Furthermore, always having someone there when you need them is essential because support is the foundation of a relationship. Last but not least, faith is being true to a person and having them be your one and only. Everyone has the ability to make their own choices, but being in a trustworthy relationship, your honest attributes will combine to make a successful partnership. Respect is something you need to give in order to receive. If you want someone to treat you a certain way, you have to treat him or her the same way. To make this happen you need to have manners. For example, letting other people go first, especially the elderly or the sick ones. Everyone wants to be treated equal without discrimination of race, color, gender, or religion. You need to have in mind that everyone deserves a chance to be treated like a human. I think everyone should be treated proper, unless they give you a reason no to. “ Treat others......
