Marriage is difficult, but once you’ve got it down it is very rewarding. Bonding two people together can cause a lot of controversy to arise. While you both may share similar views, there are going to be things that you disagree on. It’s important to recognize these disagreements and be able to accept and discuss these concerns.

Being on the same page as your spouse is extremely important. Your spouse is the one person you can always count on, the one person who will always go to bat on, and ultimately the person you need in your corner. Even if your opinions differ, you should know what your partner believes in. Take the quiz for yourself and find out if you and your spouse are truly on the same page.
