I know you're probably thinking of the old adage which equates partnerships to marriages and we all know how a lot of marriages turn out.

Partnership or Strategic Alliance: Don't worry a partnering agreement doesn't have to be a lifetime commitment. In fact, you can and should create a strategic alliance as a way of testing the viability of the potential partnership before you sign a contractual agreement to form a partnership. A strategic alliance by definition is usually less formal and typically has a specific end date. You can develop a strategic alliance with a business or entrepreneur. It can be for a specific project, task or the obtainment of a particular product or service. Developing a strategic alliance first, will allow you to test the arrangement before determining if something more lasting can be established.
Choose a partner that is complementary: It may be tempting to choose someone who is just like you, but this will not make a business successful, as you want someone who can bring different skills, experience and know how. No person is a master of all things, if you are skilled in finances you may want to choose a partner who is skilled in sales and marketing. The combining of different skills allows for greater innovation, more ideas, better planning and a greater chance that your business will be successful.
