Cupid’s Advice:

Relationships have their perks, but there’s something about being married that’s more special. How are you sure marriage is the right idea? Cupid is here to help with some relationship advice:

1. You’re at home together: There’s a difference between living together as a couple and making a home together. In a relationship, you’re more likely to be visiting between apartments and keeping a toothbrush at your partner’s place. Marriage helps put the aspects of your “bachelor bad” or “bachelorette pad” lives together. You’re combing two lives into one house. You can have your own personal touches all while keeping yourselves in order.
