Matt McGorry didn’t seem like he had a wife or a girlfriend as of 2022. However, he already had an idea about the type of person he wanted to marry. Even more, Matt knew the secret of a happy marriage.
According to Matt’s tweet, that linked his “summed up thoughts on dating” — When you choose a life partner, you’re choosing a lot of things, including your parenting partner and someone who will deeply influence your children, your eating companion for about 20,000 meals, your travel companion for about 100 vacations, your primary leisure time and retirement friend.
And Matt was going to check it all before he walked down the aisle.
Besides relationship wisdom, Matt also often shared tweets about dating and feminism. One of which read, “There are some things that I would say preclude people from being feminists even if they called themselves one. Such as physically abusing or sexually assaulting women.”
