As most of us know, feelings of "being in love" come and go.
I wouldn't want to rely on such feelings to keep my life partnership healthy and intact.
We had the same views on religion, money, child raising, friendships etc.
It was a lovely life in which we traveled in many countries and enjoyed each day.
How much do you spend on items and experiences that aren't essential to your survival? To be clear, if you don't really like who the other person is (not as obvious as you'd think or hope in the honeymoon phase), if you don't really laugh together, if you don't have the same basic attitudes about religion, having children, raising children, other family members, close friends, and money, it's probably best to pause and reflect before committing to a long term relationship.
