You could take a compatibility quiz. Ask Dr. Romance is another good place to start.
But remember this: All couples have areas where they don’t match up. What’s important is not whether you have conflict, because all couples do. What is important is how you handle it. Experts who study marriage say one excellent indicator of a happy marriage is if, most of the time, your positive interactions with your husband far outnumber the negative ones.
