  2. Not giving me too much grief about my snoring, except maybe that one time when birthday present was just a bunch of Breathe Right nasal strips.
  3. Separate bank accounts.
  4. Their JDate profile — keeping options open.

That way if nothing else pans out, you’ll always have a warm body snuggling next to you in your old age.
