I have been dating my boyfriend Derek for over 3 years now, and we talk about marriage often. We know that we both date for the purpose of seeking a lifetime partner, and that our relationship is not to be taken lightly. I was sent six questions in my email by my lovely mentor who I have known since middle school. I thought it was great advice, so I want to share with all of you here in this forum. Six questions to ask before getting married: 1. Do I honestly like this person? 2. Do I want my kids to grow up to be like this person? 3. Does this person bring out the best in me? 4. Do the people who love me the most think we’re a good match? 5. Does this person strengthen my faith and my principles? 6. Can I stay committed to this person no matter what?
