Are you still questioning whether your partner is 100% right for you? Do you sense a difference in your core values and aren’t sure if your relationship will go the distance?

You can have some — you will have some — but if you have too many and you don’t know how to navigate, or compartmentalize, or say, “Hey, cool like we’ll put that on the back burner,” you’re going to have a real problem.” [4:37]
