I think talking about family life expectations is important. Will both of you work? Do you want children? How important is faith to each of you? I think having a general discussion about lifestyle is also key. You don’t want to go into something with unrealistic expectations or you don’t want to be the person who felt blindsided.

You would need to find out if your personalities are compatible.  To determine if you have the same sense of humor, views on religion, goals for work and personal life.  If one member is extremely religious and the other does not attend church, that would make it tough to sustain a relationship.

For finances, if one person is extremely hard working and goal driven and the other chooses to not work, the could also put a strain on the relationship, unless the plan is for one member to stay home when they have children.

Another question to ask is regarding wanting children.  If one person wants lots of children and the other doesn't want to have any children, that could cause a strain that may not be repairable.

When thinking about spending your entire future with someone, there are many things you’ll want to know.
·        What is the person’s faith and culturalupbringing?  Are you both open and accepting of each other’s background?
·        How do you feel about having kids?
·        What do you believe about roles for men and women?  And how to divvy up the responsibilities of keeping a home, paying the bills and raising children?
·        Do your families support you in your decision to get married?  If not, could thisinterfere with your marriage later on?
·        Do you have a deep and abiding love, trust, and respect for each other?
