The results are in from the Marriage Survey I hosted last week. The survey question was, "What Characteristics are Most Important When Choosing a Spouse." The results are based on a 10-point scale.
The first column shows the score that characteristic earned on a ten-point scale. Column two indicated the rank it received by it's score.
Sadly, "Integrity" fell off the characteristic list during edits, and from the number of people who manually added it on their entries, I think it would have factored high in the results.
It's not scientific by any means, but it does provide a compelling glimpse at what men and women are looking for in a spouse, and how their concerns differ by gender.
For people familiar with the document, "Family:A Proclamation to the World," the results powerfully support the principles outlined there.
Thanks to all of you who took the survey!
