criteria for choosing a spouse

Q:

There are two guys that are potentials for marriage. One is not the best Muslim but trying and the other is a good Muslim. The first i feel closer to but the second I see myself having a better lifestyle with even if my heart is drawn to the first. I just wish I knew who Allah has deemed right for me because I can’t decide on my own. What should I do?
