Marriage questions to ask prior to the marriage tend to depend on the needs and the trajectory of the couple. Generally, however, the following questions are helpful: 1. Are we excited about married life or just the wedding day? 2. Do we truly know each other or do we need to take additional time to be acquainted with each other’s stories? 3. Do we have similar visions for work, family, and finances? 4. Will we engage in counseling prior to the marriage?
