Yeah, I hear they last for around 6 months to 2 years or so.Sparks are great. I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying sparks greater than I could imagine in the past. But the relationship didn’t last long. Sparks aren’t sustainable.
When choosing your wife it is very much an objective decision, like buying a house. Yes emotion is involved obviously, but not the infatuation you speak of. She must be someone you can live with comfortably day to day and enjoy being with. Infatuation blinds you from determining this. Simple test when analyzing a girl - take away the horniness and see what’s left. A lot of times the answer is “not much” for a girl you’re infatuated with.
Beyond this if you’re unsure about someone just remember that only God can find you a wife and when you know you’ll know.
Yeah, that’s a good test. I’ll have to try that out more intentionally next time. It’s hard to take the blinders off.
You’re right about that.
