When it comes to Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez’s relationship, what Bachelorette host Chris Harrison loves the most, “is that they’re living their lives.”  According to People, Fedotowsky recently began a gig as a correspondent for the local Fox station in San Diego.  Her groom-to-be has opened a new office for his insurance business as well.  Friend and former Bachelorette bachelor Kiptyn Locke suggested, “It’s important to be away for a while and get to know each other so then when you go do those things, it’s all real.”  With things going so well, it doesn’t seem that a 2011 wedding will surprise anyone.

What should you know about your partner before getting married?

Cupid’s Advice:

While you might feel that you know everything there is to know about your partner, it doesn’t hurt to ask a few additional questions.  Cupid’s got three topics to discuss before tying the knot:

1. Skeletons in the closet: Nicole Kidman had to deal with Keith Urban’s addictions early on in their marriage.  Having a past isn’t something to be ashamed of, so ask your partner to be honest with you.

2. Finances: While commercials for freecreditscore.com might sing about extreme financial sorrows, they aren’t kidding!  No one enjoys talking about their financial situation, but rather than let this become an obstacle after you’ve walked down the aisle, get it over with now.

3. Home sweet home: If you or your partner are currently living separately, discuss where you plan to live after getting married.  Jobs, family and the economy can affect possible locations your partner will consider living.
