Is it love or infatuation?

If your relationship has a kind of maturity and understanding you can say that you are ready for commitment.
Are you compatible with your partner?
Compatibility is one of the important factors when you are thinking of committing to someone. Are you financially, socially, religiously, spiritually, physically and intellectually compatible with your partner?
