Haven't Asked A Whole Lotta Questions?

Well, you should! Wish I had, way back when. Moot point now, but today's NYT says:
Relationship experts report that too many couples fail to ask each other critical questions before marrying.

List of the very crucial questions here. Of course you can ask questions until you turn blue in the face, but the tricky part is getting an honest answer.

It is just me or does "Will there be a television in the bedroom?" seem out of place on that list of serious questions?

I mean, yes, I get it, a TV in the bedroom can be problematic as it can distract some people from more important matters. But it seems to me that in that case the problem isn't the TV itself, it's the person who prefers to stare at the TV instead of talk, fuck, or whatever else.

Which falls somewhere in one of the other serious questiosn.

No, not just you. Struck me as out of synch too. If they're going to include appliances, they should also ask, "Is there a laptop in your bed?"

What the heck are y'all talking about? This is an excellent question. If you don't have a dang TV set in the bedroom, how are you going to watch your porn? Oh, wait, I guess you could watch it on a laptop. But the pictures wouldn't be as big.

Important question:

"You're not a dude, are you?"

Seriously, it's important, and really should be asked. I'll leave it at that.

Asked to whom? About whom?

It's an important pre-relationship question, of course.

Just a little something I learned from personal experience. I was young and naive. Don't judge me.

What's all this "asking" stuff anyway? If it's a good Christian marriage, the wife should "cleave and submit." So, basically, the husband to be should be "telling" and the wife to be should be "agreeing."
