Questions you should ask before you get married!

Rather than 10 to 15 questions, I think it is important to cover the important categories of questions. Below are the categories that I think are critical.

General categories of questions

   Out of all of the categories in the book “Lies at the Altar”, I have picked 9 areas that I think are very important to cover, and I recommend going through all of the categories in the book (Chapter 9, Eyes Wide Open - 276 Questions to ask before you marry)\
