About This Quiz

If you are fortunate enough to find someone who loves you, respects you, and is capable of interacting with other human beings like a darn grownup, then marriage is one of life's great blessings. As those who have marched to ensure marriage is open to all people will attest, marriage is not quite the same thing as living with someone. When you get married, you have a wedding in which you make a vow in front of your whole community - and, if you are a person of faith, in front of God - to stand by this person no matter what comes your way.  That means you've got everyone in your life rooting for your relationship, like a chorus of cheerleaders congratulating you on finding love. Indeed, marriage grants you something like 1,100 rights that you can't get just by moving in. 

That's why it's a big deal, and not everyone is ready for it. It's a good thing to admit it if you are not ready, as it shows you're not taking marriage lightly. It doesn't mean you don't love your boo, if you have one, or that you won't find love if you don't. It just means you respect the enormity and importance of marriage enough to not just slide into it because other people think you should. You know it's an act of will.

Of course, some people are totally ready. How can we tell you apart? Well, it's all about how you start your day. Let's find out if you're ready for the big, "I do!"
