Intimidating questions ask
I haven't made it down the aisle quite yet (that's another article for another day) but as a wedding planner, I get to talk to many newly engaged couples.
One of the first things I like to ask them is how they knew that he or she was the one.
Everyone wants to believe that the trust between partners is unbreakable, but the fact of that matter is that trust is very, very breakable.
From something small, like snooping through texts, to something bigger like infidelity, how will you deal with it?
If you really think about it, could you put your life ethos into words? Likewise, if your spouse's mother needs to either go to a nursing home or move into your home, are you willing to give up time and resources to allow that?
Decide now who can or wants to stay home with kids, who can make a career sacrifice and for how long.
If one of you is religious and the other isn't, you have to learn to truly respect their beliefs and not just secretly think that your partner is way off base.Bonus points if you actually have fun working together.My ex and I couldn't even pick up a paintbrush without getting into World War III, and I eventually realized that you don't want a partner you can't complete tasks with.Next, address the nature of what is being investigated and all issues by explaining that the matter under investigation is serious and the company has a commitment/obligation to investigate the claim.Let them know that no conclusion will be made until all of the facts have been gathered and analyzed.
