Honeymoon Compatibility Checklist

Will your honeymoon be a bed of roses?

By Susan Breslow Sardone

To find out if you have honeymoon compatibility, print 2 copies of this simple questionnaire... and take it separately. There are no right or wrong answers, just questions to help you define your idea of the perfect honeymoon — which may not be the same as your partner.

Compare notes after you finish, and if it turns out you don't have 100% compatibility (almost no one does!), be prepared to negotiate as you enter the planning stage.

    [ ] Right after the wedding.
    [ ] When we have the time.

    [ ] Cut to the chase: We're taking it before the wedding.
    [ ] No honeymoon.

2. Pick one:
