Don’t Get Married Until Asking These 15 Questions

Marriage is an enormous commitment. It connects two people together in so many regards.

Before making this commitment, ask your partner these questions. Even if you are not planning to officially get married, ask these questions before committing to a life-long partnership.

  1. Who will be the primary caregiver if we have kids? Of course, first, ask your partner about their stand on having children. If you are both on board, it is important to discuss who is going to stay home with them or if you are using outside help from daycare, nannies or grandparents.
  2. Do we understand and agree on each other’s financial system? Money is a tough one. Everyone has their own fears around money, own goals, spending and saving habits. When creating a life together, it is good to have mutual goals and systems in place.
  3. What are we expecting as far as cleanliness goes in our home? Some people are messy, others are hyper-organized. We all have our pet-peeves. Chores have to be split somehow. Talk about it!
  4. Are both of our needs being met when it comes to affection? How will you ensure that both of you will receive assurance and physical affection each day?
  5. Can we comfortably and freely discuss our sexual needs and desires? Don’t be shy about bedroom topics. You are getting married, after all!
  6. How many TVs will we have? For some TV is not an issue, others keep multiple in their house including their bedroom. Get on the same page.
  7. Are we both aware of each other’s health history? This includes mental, emotional and physical health and if you are planning to have children, your genetic issues.
  8. Do we really trust each other and can truly listen? It is crucial to be able to listen to and trust each other.
  9. What are the differences and similarities in our spiritual or religious beliefs? You don’t have to believe the same, but to understand and respect each other is important.
  10. Do we have mutual friends? Not living a separate life outside of your home is important. Create a mutual social circle.
  11. Do we have respect for each other’s families and relatives? Can you be friendly during family events and care about your partner’s family’s well-being?
  12. Does my family upset you in any way? It is important to be upfront to work through issues before it’s too late.
  13. Is there anything you would never change, even for marriage? It can be your last name, a habit or a belief system, it important to understand it.
  14. If one of us received a dream opportunity that required a move, would the other one follow? Is moving for any reason on the table? Can we support and sometimes make sacrifices for each other’s dreams?
  15. Do we both feel equally committed and can get through any storm together? Marriage is not always easy. There will be ups and downs. Are you truly committed to getting through anything together?

Answering these questions and having some honest discussions can bring your relationship to the next level and strengthen your commitment.
