Ever since your eyes met at the bar, you knew she was the one. But now that you're together, how long will it will last? Below are some indicators on whether you're both in it for the long haul or just a short romance:

Conduct weekly budget meetings to review expenses to make sure you're both on the same page. Shared investments are also a good sign, since this helps you look forward to a shared financial future.
