64 Questions to Ask Your Partner About Daily Life and Lifestyles

3:24:00 PM

We plan extensively for our wedding day, but more than that we need to plan for the day-to-day.  Marriage is the daily grind, the merging of lifestyles... the rollercoaster of real life.  It's time to talk about household duties, individual roles and responsibilities, and the meaning of leisure and relaxation for your partner.  I guarantee you won't see eye to eye on every question, so it's important to cover these now to avoid resentments later.  I've pulled together the top questions on "Daily Life and Lifestyles" from the book, "1001 Questions to Ask Before You Get Married" by Monica Mendez Leahy.  Have fun with these!
