Yes.
Your is for possession e.g. your coat, your child, your glasses etc.
You're is a shorter version of "you are", e.g. You're old enough to know the difference between your and you're ;)

Lol don't confuse the poor girl now
If OP doesn't know the difference between your & you're - she most definitely doesn't know the meaning of the word FACETIOUS lol


Quoting NowImAMom...:

Your an idiot for posting this; what's you're opinion on whether or not others know?

*Yes, I know. I'm being facetious.

YEP!! To check which spelling to go with, I always say the sentence out loud. If you are fits properly, like You are going to the store--then I know it is correct to spell it you're. If I said It is you are dog, then of course, I know that is not correct. It would be It is your dog.

"The book you wanted, 'Tales Of Yore,' is in your bag.  You're going to let me read it when you're done with it, right?"

One shows ownership, one is a shortened version of "you are."

Quoting CuriousArentYa:

Yes. Then and than is what trips me up.

Here is a good way to remember. 

"I would rather take a shower than have sex" (instead of). 

"I would rather take a shower then have sex" (afterward).

"Your" signifies possession.

"You're" is a conjunction between "you" and "are".

you're....contraction of you are

your... possession

than... comparative

then....sequential

they're...contraction... they are

their.....possession

there......location

hear.....listen

here.....location

wear.....have something on or to "wear" something down

where.....location

we're...contraction...we are

notice: (here, there, where), are locations, same last 4 letters.  

also: (when, then), both end the same

to remember (hear) just think EAR

did I miss any other problem words???
