Quiz: Are You "A Little Bit Married"?
We've been dating for more than a year.
I talk on the phone with his parents.
We go on vacations with each other's families.
We're planning to live together (or already do).
I often wonder, "Where is this going?"
Do I just wait around? How can I be sure this person is really "The One"? If this sounds familiar, you are not alone. It's the dawning of an age when we're not in any hurry to reach the milestones—house, spouse, and kids—that once marked adulthood, although we'd like to get there . . . soon.
In this practical, no-holds-barred guide, Hannah Seligson delivers an eye-opening look at why serial long-term relationships have become the new romantic rite of passage. From making life-changing sacrifices for your partner to dealing with doubts, Seligson explains how to make the most of this ambiguous state, including:
•What are the signs s/he's ready for long-term commitment?
•How do you make decisions about careers, cohabitation, and religion when there isn't a ring?
•What's the best way to mention the "M" word to a commitment-phobe?
•How long should you stay A Little Bit Married before tying the knot . . . or moving on?
Combining expert advice with compelling anecdotes, A Little Bit Married will provide you with the roadmap you need to survive the life stage post–"Let's Do It!" and pre–"I Do."
