Relationship Non-Negotiables to Consider When Choosing Mr. Right

20 Non-Negotiables to Consider When Choosing Mr. Right

Non-negotiables aren't nice to haves, but must haves if you want a relationship to go from fun to a done deal. They're a list of demands — deal breakers in waiting if one's not met.

Last week I asked for your relationship non-negotiables, and I've gathered up 20 here. Not to grow your own non-negotiable list, but here are a few to consider if they're not already on it.

  • Passionate about career
  • Agree on kids, whether it's wanting, not wanting, or being open to either
  • Loyalty (i.e. no cheating)
  • Have money (and not be cheap)
  • Not insist on changing names after marriage
  • Well mannered
  • Agree on marriage
  • Direct and not passive when speaking
  • Sexual compatibility
  • Reciprocal trust

Read the rest below.

  • Affectionate
  • Respectful (no embarrassing people on purpose)
  • Faith compatibility
  • Responsible
  • Humbleness
  • Value education
  • Self-reliance
  • Political compatibility
  • Feelings toward animals
  • Cleanliness

Have any to add?

My husband has all of those, except I didn't care about him having money and we didn't find out about the sex until AFTER we were married. =P
