Throughout my career,
I have seen everything from couples who married their childhood loves to people in their retirement years who still struggle with commitment issues. Most of us fall somewhere between these two extremes, meaning that we experience several relationships before finding the person we believe to be our perfect pairing.
Whether you’re currently married, in a relationship, or contemplating entering a relationship with a new love interest, it is crucial that you know what role this person will play in your life. After all, there’s no avoiding the inevitable, often uncomfortable questions we must ask ourselves: Is this the person I was bound by destiny to share my life with? Or did I settle too quickly into a relationship with someone who can never complete me? Answering these questions honestly can be hard without a bit of guidance. There are 10 signs that indicate a soul mate bond—or a lack of—between you and your partner. Ever met two partners who finish each other’s sentences?

You might experience this with your best friend or your mother, but it is the telltale sign of a soul mate when you experience it with your romantic partner.
