One essential aspect in finding the right partner, with mental/emotional stability is getting to know them from a psychological viewpoint. I married and lived with a sociopath/narcissist that nearly destroyed me. But was somehow able to realize (too late) the inner emotional turmoil these live in and be able to survive. To understand what makes them tick, get to know their background, friends, habits outlook...etc. MARRIAGE SHOULD BE ENJOYED, NOT ENDURED! WHAT'S YOUR TAKE?
[i]One of the main characteristics of psychopathy is the lack of empathy, the absence of feelings and the absence of affectivity. With these qualities, we can hardly believe in the idea that he can feel love for someone other than himself.[/i]
