Marriage Compatibility Test
Pre Marriage Questions
I believe that every couple should take a marriage compatibility test before tying the knot. I mean really dig down and ask the tough questions.
Are you compatible at all or are you so much in love that you believe that love will conquer all?
When in love, we tend to think that our relationships are perfect and that destiny is knocking
on our door and that everything will turn out all right. We think that our differences are cute
and are not important enough to take real notice of.
We are floating in a wonderful love-bubble that has very little to do with reality. The sad thing
is that we are so much in love that we really think that this love is reality and will continue for
ever and ever. Aren't we supposed to live happily ever after?
I think love is the most wonderful emotion we are capable of feeling, but making a life long decision
needs to involve more that our feelings of love. It needs a good dose of reality and honesty and objectivity.
How will you know if you are compatible with your partner? Have you sat down and looked at
your personal core values?
Do you know who you are and what you want from life?
Pre marriage questions to ask
People are afraid to ask the tough questions before marriage, afraid to take a marriage compatibility test, because they are afraid of
what it may reveal about their relationship.
That is the point.
Isn't it better to find out now, before you get married, rather than later? Take responsibility for what will be the biggest decision of your life.
If you think you are mature enough to be getting married then you must be asking these questions of yourself and your partner.
Take a marriage compatibility test. Or talk to a marriage counselor and get some pre marriage counseling.
I believe couples planning a long term relationship, or already immersed in one, should answer these questions separately, in writing,
and then discuss their answers together. Try to understand your partner's point of view, and think of ways you can meet in the middle.
Here are just a few of the marriage compatibility test questions you should be asking:
- Do you need your partner to make you happy and fulfill you?
- Besides love, what is your main reason for marrying your partner?
