  1. Yes Cleopatra,
    before you marry, better find out who you really are.
    Then check out who your partner really is.
    After you have become clear on this, you’ll find that you don’t want to marry anymore, as then the REAL marriage will already have happened…
    Pura Vida!

  2. Getting married is very much like going to a restaurant with friends.You order what you want, and when you see what the other person has, you wish you had ordered that instead!
