Before taking the plunge
You think you have found the right person to marry. You have both known each other for a considerable length of time. You are fairly confident you know all you need to about your partner and you are sure you are in love.
Here are a few questions worth asking yourselves before taking the final plunge. If you are meant for each other the answers won't end your relationships but they should help you prepare for a lifetime of marriage together.
Pastors and marriage counsellors might also find these questions very helpful for pre-marriage counselling.
The important thing to remember is that there are no right or wrong answers to these questions. Answering them honesty with each other will only help in building a strong foundation for your marriage.
Each person should give the other an honest answer to these questions.
