Yeah, I know marriage to be the huge step one can take. I am single so I really value this questions as a guidelines for marriage. Marriage is not to be seen as an obligation (i.e. I marry because people say I must) but to see it as a willingness to committ to my potential life partner.

we have all that for each other, our only downfall is that my physical contact needs are much higher than hers. With all this in mind, what do I do to raise those contact needs in her or just dimenish those in me without me having to suffer the losses?
