You don't want to end up like these people.

To make sure you don't, take your time when you're dating someone.

More important, what are his beliefs aboutrepparttar 143974 raising of children? Who takes care of household chores? What are his feelings about infidelity? Does he believe marriage is for life, or does he think it should last only as long as it's fun?

One question at a time. Get to know a guy before you start fantasizing about floating up an aisle in a big white dress.

One ofrepparttar 143977 great things about being single is that your world is full of possibilities. You're free to come and go as you please.
