About This Quiz

It's been a traditional dream in our culture for many years. The idea is that you find your mate, you make a commitment to each other "through good times and in bad," and you live happily ever after. While this vision still holds true for plenty of folks, others have a different view on the kind of life they truly want to live.

For example, if you're someone who is fiercely independent and you enjoy taking spontaneous trips all around the globe, you're likely to be someone who is more drawn to the single life. Should you inform us that you are not a fan of cuddling and that the longest relationship you've had in your life was less than three months, we'll be even more convinced that you really have no interest in marriage at all.

On the other hand, if you're constantly looking at wedding magazines and you've spent countless hours imagining all the details of your special day, there's little doubt that you're ready and willing to get hitched to the right person here and now. When you tell us that you're clear about some very specific characteristics that you're looking for in a mate and you're under no delusion that marriage is a cake walk, we'll likely be convinced that you're all about getting married.
