On this episode of her weekly vlog “Discovery”, Glory Edozien talks about the 6 important questions anyone should ask a would-be spouse.
I love love…so I tend to always get quite excited anytime I am talking about relationships. On today’s edition of Discovery, I am sharing 6 questions you should be asking your partner before you tie the knot.
As much as I am a love bird and spend half of my time blowing heart shaped bubbles and memorising every love song ever written, I still think there is a place for purposeful dating. As my aunty once said, when it comes to relationships you need to give your brain time to think. Many times we rush into love.
Things progress quickly and we find ourselves saying ‘I do’ in front of a priest. Then real life begins and we start wondering who the person lying in bed next to us really is!
My advice is to always create space in your relationship for honest conversation.
Conversations about values, ambitions, priorities- yes the lovey dovey stuff is important, but knowing how compatibility of your values and future plans is just as important.
Ask Your Partner These Questions:
What does marriage look like to you?
2. What are your values on money, children, and buying a home?
3.How do you think married couples should handle conflict?
4.How important is religion? How will we celebrate religious holidays, if at all?
5.Is my debt your debt? Would you be willing to bail me out?
6.What’s the most you would be willing to spend on a car, a couch, shoes?
7.Do we like each other’s parents?
8.Do you know all the ways I say “I love you”?
9.What do you admire about me, and what are your pet peeves?
