The questions are not what’s important – it’s the knowledge that comes with the answers. When you know your partner well, you are more prepared to make any necessary accommodations or adjustments – for example, he may like to eat dinner at the table every night, and you like to sit in front of the TV. You will either want to compromise, or you will start eating at the dinner table out of respect for your partner’s preference. Other questions, more serious questions, such as “what is your relationship with Christ”, may present some challenges, which you can now begin to prepare for. You might not have realized that he does not believe in baptism at infancy, whereas all of your brothers and sisters were baptized as babies. With this knowledge, you can come to agreements now, possibly saving yourselves an argument down the road. You will also be more respectful as you remember your partner’s answers to these questions when these topics arise in day to day life.
