100 Questions Before Marriage: Your Purpose Your Past

100 Questions Before MarriageWe are offering this 100 Questions Before Marriage because in our marriage counseling work  we have found that far too many couples lack a lot of basic information about each other before they get married. For example, there is a TV commercial being aired right now where the new husband is singing about not knowing that his new wife had bad credit so rather than living in a nice suburban neighborhood like he expected, they’re being forced to live in the basement with her mom and dad. That’s just one example of the kinds of things that couples need to know before they say “I Do.”

The questions are intended to help you give you information that you need to know so that you can make an informed decision about committing to spend the rest of your life with this person. In responding to the questions, it is essential that both of you be “gut-wrenchingly honest”—that you tell the truth and the whole truth as you respond to the 100 Questions Before Marriage exercise.
