Cupid’s Advice:

Getting married is one of the biggest changes you will experience in your life.  Here are some ways to prepare:

1. Living together: Living together first isn’t a requirement, but it’s doesn’t hurt to practice for marriage by cohabiting.  You’ll learn about each other’s quirks and habits.

2. Having a second half: Marriage is a union that binds you to someone for better or for worse.  You will always need to consult your partner before making any major decisions.

3. Making time: Spending quality time with your partner is important when dating, but it’s even more important once you’ve tied the knot.
