You may think you know everything about your significant other.
But despite your wealth of knowledge, there’s still a chance you haven’t asked the right questions to uncover certain key issues quite yet.
When you’re getting engaged to someone, there are certain things you need to know about them, partially to assess your compatibility and partially because communication, openness and trust are the foundations of a healthy relationship.
Here are five of those things you must know:
1. How your significant other feels about children.
This isn’t talk you should leave until after you tie the knot. Before getting in too deep, you should know how you each feel about children. Discover whether your partner wants them. Find out how many your partner wants and when. Ask about their partner’s views on parenting and gender roles.
Can either of you imagine taking a break from a high-powered career in order to focus more on caregiving? How do you each see your roles as mom and dad?
