Questions Couples Should Ask - Or Wish They Had Before Marrying

The New York times printed an article back in 2006 which contained 15 questions you must ask your partner before getting married. The questions touched upon issues like family life, child rearing, health, affection, how the house will be run, commitment and more. In today's divorce filled society, it is indeed very important to ask the right questions before tying the knot. Most couples don't know each other half as well as they think they do simply because they failed to ask each other the right questions.

Think about it: we usually ask questions only on the first couple of dates and these are usually over the surface, unrevealing questions. A boss at a job interview asks more penetrating questions than most people who date. We simply continue with the relationship and learn things as they occur. That's a shame for 2 reasons: We miss a lot about our partner's past, we lack the true understanding of whether or not he or she will be right for us in the long run.

It is estimated that 83% of divorces would not have occurred had the couples asked each other the right questions. If you know where you may disagree in the future, you should find out about it now, before marrying. Otherwise, you'll be having awful fights in the future. You might even discover some things which may show that you need to work on your compatibility. You need to do this before getting married or your chances of getting divorced will skyrocket.

Asking each other questions is also a fun way to get to know each other and grow closer to one another. You'd be amazed at how much you'll learn about your partner that you didn't know. You simply didn't ask the right questions.

Are 15 questions enough? I doubt it. If you're serious about your relationship and your love for one another, you owe it to yourself to ask all the questions which come to your mind. You'll be glad you did.
