Thinking about getting married? Let’s make sure you’re really ready. A British law firm put together this compatibility test, and they say that if a couple has agreed on the answers to all 12 of these questions, they’re good to go.

#1.)  Do you know the extent of each other’s assets and debts?

#2.)  Do you see eye-to-eye on saving money and how you’ll share or not share the money you each earn?

#3.)  What sort of relationship do you want with both of your extended families?

#4.)  Do you want children, and how many?

#5.)  Do you want your children to attend private or public schools?

#6.)  Do you agree on what religion you will bring up the children, and how much of a role religion will play in your lives?

#7.)  Do you share common interests and like doing the same things on vacation?

#8.)  What kind of lifestyle are you aiming for, and where do you want to live down the road?

#9.)  Do you have any addictions your partner doesn’t know about?

#10.)  Are your career paths compatible with each other . . . and compatible with having children?

#11.)  Do you want the “traditional” gender roles with a woman at home and a man working and making the money, or more “modern” shared responsibilities?

#12.)  Are there any exes you’re still hung up on?
