5 Questions to Ask Before Marriage

On Behalf of | Dec 9, 2016 | Family Law

At Ami L. DiLorenzo, P.A., a common reason why our clients’ marriages end in divorce is that they simply weren’t ready or were completely unprepared to take that leap of faith. When you plan to spend the rest of your life with another person, it is imperative to completely get to know him or her before you tie the knot.

The following are five common questions our Ocala divorce attorney believes you should ask your special someone before getting married:

  1. Do you want to have kids? Children can be the ultimate goal for some married people, while it may be the worst fear for others. Discussing children before you agree to get married to each other can prevent a significant argument in the future.
  2. Were you married before? People who were previously married might be obligated to pay for spousal or child support, which could affect your finances. If your future spouse has kids from a previous marriage, you may wish to discuss the relationship he or she would like you to have with them.
  3. How do you manage your finances? Understanding your significant other’s spending habits before you get married can save you financial heartache down the road. While there is nothing wrong with keeping your finances separate, it is imperative to discuss who is responsible for paying the mortgage and bills, especially if one partner makes a lot less than the other.
  4. How does religion impact your life? Faith can be the most important thing to someone and the insignificant to another. Discuss what role religion plays in your fiancé’s life and the expectations of both partners.
  5. What are your sexual desires? While discussing sexual preferences and fantasies might be embarrassing, a dialogue about each partner’s specific sexual needs could prevent future frustrations and anger.
