The debate is more exciting than the prompt. Do you need to be in love to get engaged? How compatible is compatible enough?
I have another question. Doesn’t love at first sight blind you to all the incompatibilities that crop up later on in the relationship? Sometimes, seeing people struggle post-marriage, I wonder if they’d have gotten married at all if they hadn’t looked deep into each other’s eyes on the first date and fallen madly in love, skipping all the conversations about goals, lifestyle, and aspirations.
