File for Later: What to Look for in a Marriage Partner

From Barking Up the Wrong Tree:

Marriage isn't all fun and games. In the past I've posted about marriage making you poorer, killing sex drive, and making you fat.

marry? Should you just trust your feelings or pick the person who
"looks good on paper"?

He goes on to lay out some empirically-derived factors of successful marriages; there are some you'd expect (marry someone with high self-esteem), and some you might not (apparently a little neurosis is a good thing).
