Testing Your Relationship

Before you say “I do,” make sure you “still will” twenty years from now!

Too many young couples jump into marriage without seriously assessing the relationship. Here are a few questions to ask yourself before going to the altar.

Do you spend time laughing together? Laughter is a good sign that the relationship is healthy and vibrant. Do you feel comfortable around them—even when you’re not being romantic?

Do you care deeply for each other? Caring is another critical sign of a healthy union. Are your family and friends supportive of the relationship? If they’re not, they usually see something that you don’t.

Finally, Do you feel safe and secure? Stability is critical to a solid marriage. So don’t be afraid to say “I do.” Just make sure you’re going into marriage with your eyes wide open.
