Relationship Rx: How to Know If You're Right for Each Other?

Q: I've met the man of my dreams, but we've only been dating for a month and a half. We'd like to marry in the near future but agree that we're not ready yet. What dating discussion topics should be brought up so we can be sure we're right for each other?

A: Hey, slow down there!! A month and a half is nowhere near long enough to know you want to spend the rest of your lives together. Honestly, it's also not really the time to bring up life "discussions." You're supposed to be in the "honeymoon" period of your new relationship, so honey, just enjoy it! A relationship grows and changes significantly from month to month, not to mention from year to year. You'll be sure you're right for each other when you've built your relationship into each other's lives and still feel comfortable, content, andrightabout it. There's no list of discussion topics you can check off at this point that will give you any answers. Relax and enjoy your relationship! Don't even think in terms of marriage yet, much lesswhenyou'll wed. There is no reason to rush. If you really are right for each other, everything will unfold in time.

What's the Basic Wedding Reception Timeline?

I'm not certain about the order of events at the wedding reception. Could you please give a rough timeline of the following events: receiving line, cocktail hour, first dance, champagne toast, best man's and maid of honor's speeches, dinner and cake cutting? I'm so clueless!
