What are some ways to know your values match with your partner’s?

Cupid’s Advice:

Having the same values as your partner is a good sign that the two of you will have a long lasting relationship together. But how are you supposed to know whether the two of you have the same values? Cupid is here to tell you:

1. Religion: Having a partner that has the same religious beliefs as you is a good way of being sure that they have the same values as you. Even if the two of you do not have the same exact religion, you and your beau could still have the same values if you both hold your religions close to your heart or if you both don’t believe in religion at all.

2. Family: How your partner treats his family is a great way of knowing whether or not the two of you have similar values. If your sweetheart loves their parents and keeps them close, then you have a family person on your hands. Are you the same way? Then you two have similar family values which is important if your planning on getting married.

3. Money: Do you and your sweetie have the same values when it comes to money? If your beau buys whatever makes them happy at the moment or spends paychecks on luxury items, be sure that you have the same lifestyle. If you are a big money saver, then you two do not have the same financial values. Be careful, you do not want to spend your lifetime fighting with your partner over money.
