Deciding whether to say "I do" or "I don't" is a HUGE decision and it seems nowadays people take it for granted. My parents have been married for 32 years and I truly aspire to have a marriage as open, honest, and fun as theirs! Some rush into marriage, whether it be out of fear, hope, or love, but whatever the reason many of them eventually end up divorced.

So before you go down that path, make sure it's forever! Here's some questions you should answer honestly before getting married. Good luck!

1. Do we really accept one another? There will always be things you want to change about the people in your life, but no one should be in a situation where they feel they aren't allowed to be authentic and accepted as the unique!


2. Is this relationship balanced? Do you feel you're both on the same page in terms of compromise, care, support, and sacrifice?

3. Can we have fun apart?


4. Does my partner have my back? Do you feel like you're a part of a loyal team who stands up for one another, supports one another, and shows a united front (even when the other is not around)?


5. Am I still me? Being in love with someone should not require changing our identity to fit someone else's idea of who we should be, on any level.

I hope this can help you examine your relationship and make the best decision for both of you! Check out the full list from Fox News Magazine!
