Ahh, the modern age. Science and technology have made life so convenient and digital. You can use the Internet to make an appointment at the DMV and control your house's thermostat with your phones.

Before you get engaged—or even serious with a new steady—the questions that need to be asked and answered have definitely changed. Here are a few we'd recommend sorting out before it's too late.
