Love the Grows: Questions You Should Ask Before Marriage In my marriage class in my first semester of college, our teacher gave us a handout (or should I say packet) with these questions. At first I was like "Holy shnikeys! This is way too many questions! But we did. At first it started with asking the interesting questions, but then we asked them all, wondering if maybe the answer would be different than we expected. From answering these questions we talked about how we plan on raising and disciplining our kids, who will manage the bills, what our parents should and shouldn't know about, what we believe our flaws are. Here's some of the questions I think are really important to have an understanding on in your marriage.

A few years ago I learned an ingenious method for dealing with other people when they’re doing things you wish they wouldn’t do. You go about your day as normal, but you imagine one difference: Everyone is enlightened but you. That includes: A true master won’t simply tell you what he thinks you should know. If you knew you were being tested on purpose, what would you do?
