Desperate Measures:140 points and above: You feel that marriage and commitment are an important aspect of life. This could be due to social conditioning or just plain loneliness. Don't stress so much importance on marriage, even though it means so much to you. Instead focus on the here and now and the present. Marriage will happen, when it has to happen at the right time only. So take it easy till then.
Ready to Commit: between 70 and 140 points: You are not really looking at marriage per se as the be all and end all of life. Instead you are looking for a committed relationship, which if it results in marriage would also be okay with you. You are emotionally ready for marriage and all it entails, maybe it's just a matter of finding the right person now. But, you are in no hurry and that's the way it should be.
Away from the Altar: between 35 and 70 points: You have too many other things happening in your life, to even think of marriage. Right now, you would rather concentrate on a lot of other stuff, rather than imagine yourself in a lifelong relationship. Perhaps you are on the threshold of a new career or an exciting life, and at such times it is better to defer something as important as marriage till you are mentally ready for it. So, no sweat, fulfill your goals before you even step in that direction.
