When you know, you know, right? Well, maybe. While gut instincts are all well and good (and often scarily accurate), here are 5 things to make sure you cover before you get a Lady Engaged. Because who wants to take chances with the rest of his life?
1. Her Past Life.
Like it or not, it helped shape who you both are at this very moment. You don’t need her to provide every exhaustive detail, but you should have a general road-map for how she got to the present. Please Ask About Her Pasts and know what she’s been through, Some Ladies had a very bad past that you cant condone if told.
2. Ask About Her worst qualities.
Love involves elevating the best traits, and accepting the worst ones.
3. Any previous spouses and/or children.
This should come up in No. 1, but I’m not taking any chances. Nobody likes a surprise ex.
4. Her friends!
I’m a believer that meeting the friends can be even more important than meeting the family, because friends are the people that your better half chooses to spend time around. If you haven’t met your Lady’s inner circle, then the relationship isn’t that serious — and certainly not serious enough for an engagement.
5. Know Her Career Goals.
What do you each want to accomplish in life — and how will it affect your relationship with each other? Knowing what you each want to achieve and supporting those dreams is a critical foundation for any couple.
6. How She Feel About Faith. Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, Mormon, Scientologist, Wiccan, agnostic, atheist — it’s not the belief system that matters but what it means to your wife-to-be (and your future life as a family).
