“ Women have a tendency to ask this question before men, even though both may be wondering about the answer to this question.

Pushing for an answer; however, may cause real problems in the relationship.

Towards the end of this stage, and hopefully at other times throughout it, it is not unusual for questions of “is this the right person for me” to emerge.

Questions about children, finances, careers, future goals and lifestyle should be discussed more fully.

Differences are normal and couples will learn about themselves and their relationship as they note how they handle these differences with each other.

Some of those perpetual issues or differences such as free-spending or frugal, neat and orderly or sloppy and disorganized, interested in lots of time together or more involved in outside activities begin to emerge.

At this stage of the relationship, couples will take note of the differences and may even begin to complain or attempt to problem-solve.

But when it is happening, the passion stage is very strong and significant.
