Cupid’s Advice: 

Everyone dreams of a fairytale wedding and a picture perfect romance, but real relationships almost never work out that way. Having a lifelong partner takes commitment and dedication. You’ll fight, break up and make up countless times. How do you know the person you’re with is really the one for you? You might be in a rush to get married for all the wrong reasons. Cupid has some advice:

1. Constant fighting: Arguments are common in any relationship, but if that’s all you and your significant other seem to be doing lately, then there might be bigger problems that need to be dealt with. Communication is the key to a successful marriage. You can’t expect yours to work if the two of you can’t seem to talk out your differences without a shouting match erupting.

2. Loss of interest: While it’s healthy to spend some time alone or with a group of friends, it’s a bad sign if you choose to avoid seeing your partner altogether. If you have no desire to be around your honey, why are you even considering spending the rest of your life with him/her? Reevaluate what’s left of your relationship and call off the engagement.

3. No trust: Signs of infidelity in a relationship will cause both partners to lose trust in one another, even if only one person was caught in the act. A couple can’t flourish if one person fails to be completely open and honest with the other.
