What I will say is that when you let the Lord choose your spouse, He's liable to join you to someone you'd never imagine choosing for yourself.
We have, I think, our own preconceived notions of the type of person we think would be best for us. Our ideas are based on our own background and experiences - education level, social or economic status, etc.
God is not limited by our notions. As with anything else, His choice of mate for us may not line up with societal expectations. If we let Him do the choosing, we must be willing to step outside the box, so to speak.
Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain. Philippians 2:16
