Which questions should you ask your partner before getting married? It’s not easy to decide if your partner is someone you should spend the rest of your life with. Usually making the decision becomes easier over time as you get to know the person and have a firmer grasp on their values. Though time does make it easier, there are other factors that can make the decision a challenging one. Typically when you fall in love, it becomes difficult for you to recognize the traits of your partner that may cause you to be incompatible.

1) What does your relationship with your family and friends look like? It’s extremely important to understand (and accept) the role that your partner’s family and friends play in his or her life. A big part of how compatible two people are is how they engage with their partner’s family and friends.
2) What is your financial goal in terms of annual income and what are your expenses like? For your annual income, this includes how much you earn together and what your collective goal is, as well as your individual goals and how you anticipate achieving them. In terms of your expenses, this can include the percentage of income you’re each willing to spend on maintaining your home as well as your categories of expenses such as clothing, insurance, travel, and more.
3) Will you have children together? This is absolutely something you need to ask your partner before even considering engagement. This can also often be a dealbreaker for certain people. Many people get married and plan to have children after they get married. If you marry someone who doesn’t want to have kids but you do, it’s usually a sign that the marriage won’t work.
4) How ambitious are you? If you are ambitious, you probably want to be with someone who is as ambitious as you are. Are you comfortable with each other’s level of ambition? How will this affect how much time you spend at work and your commitment to your career/family?
5) Are you each satisfied with the frequency of your intimacy? A couple’s intimate life is a huge part of their relationship. Whether people like to admit it or not, there has to be a certain level of attractiveness and intimacy between two people in order for the relationship to strive and grow. Do your desire levels match and how do you cope if they don’t?
6) Are you happy with each other’s approach to health? If you have a healthy lifestyle, you likely want a partner who has one too. Does one of you have a habit or habits that concerns the other? How important is a healthy lifestyle to you and what does that encompass? These are important questions to ask, especially if you are concerned about how your partner’s lifestyle and health may affect yours.
7) Do you share a religion or spiritual practice and in what way does that play a part in your life together? This is a big question to ask your partner, and is absolutely something you two should discuss before even getting engaged.
8) How do you share responsibilities in terms of kids and household duties? You will have to determine the different types of responsibilities you and your partner will have once you get married. Who is responsible for the housekeeping and how do you divvy up your chores? Will having a child affect your work schedule or reduce your work hours? You will have to take all these things into consideration before getting married.
