If a person has flaws, which they all do, they become amplified once you spend more and more time together. If it is a little annoying now, it will be unbearable after 5 or 10 years. And NO, you cannot change that person or “re-train” them to do things your way. It gos both ways. That little thing will grow. Be sure you are capable of dealing with it for the long haul, this is a lifetime commitment. If you don’t want that, get a pet – it is a shorter commitment.
My husband and I were once with a youth group. There were three kids sitting across from us at a meal: two guys and a girl. The one guy was a computer geek with glasses. The other one was a college student with slightly cooler hair and no glasses. The girl was obviously with him. But while the computer geek was busy serving everyone at the meal, clearing plates and garbage, the college student got angry with the girl for a small accident and poured red juice over her leather jacket and white shirt. She picked the wrong guy, and the juice didn’t seem to change her mind. She is in for some grief if that relationship continues and especially if it leads to marriage.
So to all the young, unmarried Christian girls out there, listen up: who you marry matters.
