These are some examples of questions that may be asked by a therapist: · What does my family do that annoys you? · Are there some things that you and I are NOT prepared to give up in the marriage? · If one of us were to be offered a career opportunity in a location far from the other’s family, are we prepared to move? · Have you ever felt deeply insecure in a relationship? What did you fear most? · When was the first time you felt that you were in love with another person? What happened in that relationship, and how have you come to terms with it? · What is the longest relationship you have ever had prior to this one? Why did it end, and what lesson did you learn? · Do you want children? When, and how many? · What is your relationship with God? Is religion very important to you? What aspects? · What are you NOT willing to give up for the relationship? · Does each of us feel fully confident in the other’s commitment to the marriage and believe that the bond can survive whatever challenges we may face?
