When asked in an interview what are the three things she thinks would make a person a “marriage material”, Jill said:
“Honesty, first and foremost. Not just honesty with the other person, but honesty with yourself, because sometimes we want certain things from a marriage, but what we want and what can actually make us happy are two different things.
“For me, laughter is very important. For me it’s about a life partner, it’s about someone I want to see when I’m 90 years old on the swings and we’re still laughing and best friends. Enjoying it through the good, the bad, just having that love of that person. Third, I would say [inaudible] I think to have the same ultimate goal in mind because you can love somebody but they’re on a different path. And sometimes just because you love somebody doesn’t mean you that you don’t have to let them go because you dream is a different dream from theirs.
“I think that falls in with honesty as well. Staying honest with what you want and who you are.”
