Define love and the feeling that comes with it. A piece of advice that my grandmother gave me when I was very young was not to marry the man who gives me the butterfly feeling, but to marry the man who makes me feel safe, secure and loved. I never understood why she told me this but having dated over the span of the last ten years I now see what she means. In this day and age, I can see why many women are advising their daughters and granddaughters to follow this advice. Marrying a man who loves you more than you love him idealistically seems like a good idea, but it's no less a disaster than marrying the man you love who doesn't care about you at all. It's a recipe for disaster. Both parties need to provide each other with equal unconditional love in order for the relationship to be a happy union. It's not fair for only one person to be loved while thie other isn't loved at all. Just my opinion.3

Wealth, education, looks... they are nice to have and can be a great deal. What really makes it will be the caring and the love. There is a chinese proverb... Marry the one who loves you, not the one you love.
If you love someone but that person doesn't really love you. Do you believe that you can make it work so he will love you?
From the other side, if you don't really love him but you know his love is sincere. Is there really a chance for him to change your heart?2
