When my husband and I were engaged, we lived 4 hours apart. Being away from my fiancee was torturous, but looking back it was one of our greatest blessings. Being away from each other forced us to talk and communicate on a whole different level. Rather than snuggle and watch a movie, we would chat on the phone. These long hours (and it was hours) of talking led to important conversations about the marriage we hoped to have and our expectations in marriage.
During our engagement we purchased a book called 300 Questions LDS Couples Should Ask Before Marriage and used these questions to foster lengthy and sometimes unexpected discussions. Our question-based conversations were vital in establishing strong communication skills early in our marriage. It gave us opportunities to share our feelings openly and even talk about some of those uncomfortable topics in a safe way.

  1. These are great questions! Here’s a true story: After 5 years of marriage I elbowed my hubs, winked and eye, and asked him when we should start thinking about kids. He looked at me dead in the eyes and answered matter of factly: “I don’t want kids.” Oh, yeah… we forgot to talk about that! Anyway, 11 years and one beautiful baby girl later, I think we better go through these, huh? Just to avoid any further surprises! 😉 Love your site, Divas!

  2. Very essential question list which everyone should think before their marriage. Every bachelor should read this blog so that they can manage their married life smoothly and without any complication in mind.

  3. This website is the best website that I have found in my entire life! The ideas are fresh and it is all very interesting. You guys really rock my world now. Thank you so much Dating Divas!

  4. This is an outstanding list of questions! My husband and I actually did end up discussing many of these before we got married. I think that they are good issues for married couples to revisit periodically throughout their married lives. After nearly 42 years together, you’d think we would run out of questions or new things to discover, but that simply is not the case. Keeping those lines of communication open and honest is vital. Plus a very good sense of humor 🙂
