You learn everyday in a relationship and if you don’t ask your partner
questions, you won’t know much about them or what they are up to.
Your compatibility and communication level either decreases or increases
if you start asking the right questions. Clarity comes in, then you can
decided if you want to marry your partner or not.
Inspired by Brides.com, here are a few things you must know about your
partner before asking them to marry or accepting their marriage
1. Moral, family, social and religious values:
It’s important to know where you stand with your boyfriend or girlfriend
on this issue. Will you be able to adjust or find it difficult to see
sense from their own side?
2. S*xual compatibility:
As much as people don’t like to think about this, you must know if your
needs matches your partner’s own. Do you both have similar views on s*x?
Can your level of s*xual intimacy sustain both of you when things
aren’t all that between you both?
It’s important to have this talk before marriage, leaving it till after
marriage may create more harm than good for you both. How does your
partner feel about parenting? How many kids do they want? Do they see
one gender as superior to the other? How will you both manage career and
4. Work habits:
Does your partner have a healthy work-life balance according to your
standards? Are they married to their work and hardly have time for you?
Can you handle a job that keeps you both apart all the time?
5. Financial status:
Financial compatibility is as important as emotional and physical.
Before accepting that proposal, you have to know if you’ll be taking on a
burden or a step higher than where you are presently. How will the
financial burden be shared between you both or do you have to carry it
alone? Couples have split because of money issues, so you need to plan
to avoid towing that line.
