Before getting into a serious relationship with someone (we're talking road to engagement here), there are certain things you should know. Even if you don't end up getting married, there are certain factors that will tell you if you are even willing to head in that direction. Ask these questions before it's too late!
The first and most important thing to figure out before getting serious with someone is if he/she wants it too. Make sure your partner is ready for a committed relationship. Having a serious partner takes a lot of time and emotion, and you need to be sure that your sweetie is willing to give you those things. You should also find out if marriage is soemthing he/she wants eventually.
