Make sure that you are in love, not "in heat." When you are vulnerable and lonely, it is very easy to think that this person is the one. Spend time together discussing important areas such as parenting issues and what values children should be brought up with. Make sure you are both headed in the same direction with common goals and directions for the future. Once that itch is scratched,will you have anything in common? Make sure you really want to spend the rest of your life with this person, not just needing someone to fill a temporary void in your life. Think about it. Sex and beauty soon fade. Common threads of friendship will help keep a marriage intact.
