6 Ways To Know You've Met Your Prince Charming [EXPERT]
...so you can start living your happily ever after.

 5.  If there is a sense of co-dependency, control or jealousy, these dynamics are not healthy. A relationship will not end with happily ever after if a partner portrays these qualities or behaviors.

 6.  If there is mutual respect, compassion and caring for one another, this is a good sign. You and your partner should have a commitment to one another to communicate and resolve conflicts and challenges as they arise. No one can get through life without conflict and it's important that your man is able to communicate in a loving manner with a sincere concern for what is best for you. If you feel that this is true for you and your partner, then you may just have found your prince! Finding Your Child The Right Education

Ultimately, it is important to pay attention to your own intuition. Know what it is you want in a partnership and make sure that you and your prince share the same values and beliefs. Engage in conversation around the important topics like finance, values, religion, sex, politics, family, etc. Acknowledge the parts of him that bother you and make a conscious decision if they are qualities that you can live with or if they are deal breakers. Being willing and able to converse with your partner and discuss even the hard things is what will strengthen the relationship and keep it strong over time. If you plan to start a family with this man, you need to think about what kind of parent he will be and if he attains the qualities that you would want for the father of your children.
