I had the privilege of being involved in several weddings recently. It was fantastic to be part of that special for a young (now married) couple – one of whom used to be part of the church youth group I led. Here are some questions I have thought of, worth talking together or even with a marriage prep mentor/pastor:
How did you get to this decision to spend the rest of your lives together? What is your ‘journey’ so far?
How do you connect with each other’s families?
Is there any dangerous ‘baggage’ that you are both aware if bringing in the relationship?
What is the quality you most appreciate in each other?
What annoys you in the other person?
Which part of God’s character moves you most?
In which area of serving God do you feel most passionate about?
In your wildest dreams, how would you see yourselves serving God as a couple?
What are your greatest fears regarding your relationship – how are you facing and ‘dealing’ with those fears together?
What ‘fences’ do you have in place to safeguard your marriage?
What tonics do you have in place to ensure that your relationship matures continually?
Who influences you and to whom are you regularly accountable together?
