I never really understood you breeders and your requirement of a full time female cohort, so suffice to say, personally, it's something i never have to consider.Rate your partner's ability/inability to travel
Whenever I tell her something like "We have to leave the house at 11:00 a.m." this means that at exactly 10:59 a.m. she will go into the bathroom for 7-10 minutes.
She has been to 7 countries know, flown more than a dozen times, but is still basically incapable of catching a flight anywhere on her own. She seems to have no concept of the difference between flight time and boarding time. It totally befuddles her when she checks in for a 2 p.m. flight and then she gets a boarding pass that says boarding time 1:20 p.m., but to find her departure gate on the screen she has to know the flight time, which is 2 p.m., not the 1:20 p.m. printed on the thing in her hand.
Same problem collecting luggage. She flew from Phnom Penh to Singapore once and went to the baggage claim screens to find her flight and baggage carousel number. She couldn't find it. She was staring at the cities starting with "S" for Singapore.
She frequently stops to use airport bathrooms and then spends 10 minutes in there every time while I'm standing outside holding her bag.
When I was single, I always booked an aisle seat. Now,I have to sit in the middle seat at least half the time. Usually more than half the time, because the solo traveler in the window seat is usually a man and she wants me to sit next to strange men.
She has no interest in using Google Maps and learning where things are on her own. Asking a Cambodian to use Google Maps is like asking a chimpanzee to solve a Rubik's cube.
I have taken it upon myself to just walk into the airport with her and say nothing and tell her find out how to check in, board the flight, find the luggage, etc. and she always fails and resents me making her try to do it on her own.

Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
