While physical attraction is a part of finding a spouse, it is only one piece of the puzzle in choosing a lifelong mate, Marshall Segal writes for Desiring God.
Segal, who serves as associate editor of the Christian website, discussed the topic of physical attraction in a blog published last Thursday, questioning how much of a role attraction should play when choosing a lifelong partner.
Question: "How important is physical attraction when looking for a spouse?
But it should mean there's a theme or trend in your attractions," the associate editor writes.
Some people even do the dangerous thing of getting married to people without asking God first.
In my opinion, physical attraction should not be the most important thing, what God says about the person should be the most important thing.
God would worry about the true compatibility of both of you, and not the match of physical attractiveness between you both.
Some people in churches start relationships without even consulting God first, sadly some of these relationships end in terrible situations.
