Marriage is serious business. You can’t just do it with anyone. You are promising to have and to hold ’till death do you part. Death is many, many years away! Hopefully.
Besides the actual marriage (I hear being married isn’t as easy as Cinderella makes it look), there’s also the wedding. Imagine spending all that time planning a wedding to only get an annulment. Or standing up your groom at the alter because you weren’t sure he was “the one.”
And there’s cost. A wedding alone can cost upwards of ten thousand dollars. I can’t waste a fabulous wedding dress and pretty centerpieces on just any dude. I will not go on a honeymoon in Tuscany or the Greek Islands if I have any doubts. The man I marry has to have certain qualities that I seek in a long-term partner, and in the father of my (future) children.
That’s why before tying the knot I will ask myself these seven questions, some silly and others oh-so-essential.
