Yes. Even though you have a long history together, you only have 6 months as a romantic couple. That's easy. What isn't easy is the next 50+ years. Take some time. TALK about everything. Marriages work because the people in them have shared values and goals, and work on the marriage. Give the romance a full year during which time you talk about your financial goals. your hopes and dreams, your career plans, what type of family you want, religion, politics, lifestyle, etc.
