Consider your own values and ask your partner related questions. For example, you value having a family, and you want to have children someday. Ask her if and when she would like children. If you value eating at the table instead of in front of the TV, ask her about her dinner routine (before telling her yours of course). In asking broad and specific questions that relate to you, you are doing a little compatibility test. While small issues might not seem like such a big deal, marriages that have problems usually start out with minor ones. Figure out how you will resolve conflicts during your discussion; prepare yourselves by planning ahead for disagreements.
