About This Quiz

Whenever a couple starts a relationship, they may not know this, but they enter into a world of compromise.  There are some of us who end up settling for their mates, maybe out of desperation or some other circumstance; however, on the other side of the spectrum, there are others who have such high standards, they end up being alone for the rest of their lives.  There is usually one person who ends up caving in to the demands of the other, but there are times when you have to put your foot down and say enough is enough.  

When one of these make or break situations arises, many of us sit and think, "Is this person really worth it?" or "Should I end this?"  On one end of the spectrum where many of us would consider walking away, some people forgive their significant others if they found out they were cheated on.  On the other end of the spectrum, the little things like grinding one's teeth while sleeping may be a deal breaker for others.  

Do your friends think you have higher standards than most, or do they think you should stand up for yourself more often?  Maybe you're wondering when your current mate is going to pop the question.  Whatever the reason, you should take this quiz to find out when you'll end up walking down the aisle.
