It’s all about getting to know someone before you marry them.

Daniel Stewart, a contributing writer for Verily Magazine, writes:

“Experience stressful situations together.

“This one may sound a little funny, but you can learn a lot of important things about someone by seeing how he or she reacts in less-than-ideal events. When my wife and I were dating, we took what should have been a relatively short trip. Then a colossal interstate traffic jam turned a four-hour trip into an eight-hour nightmare. Yet it really wasn’t all that bad. We decided to make the best of it and just enjoyed the opportunity to spend uninterrupted time together. My wife said that trip was a confirmation of our compatibility. She knew that I could remain calm and reasonably pleasant even when things didn’t go my way at all. I’m not saying you should intentionally get stuck in traffic or seek out stressful events, but being aware of how someone acts in these moments is wise.”
