I compiled this list of questions for myself because I want to have this to refer back to in the future. Just in case someone else comes into my life. Don’t make the same mistake that I made in the past. Take time to know who you are marrying. Ask all of these questions and more. Do not move on until you have the answers that you need. If this has helped you in anyway or you would like to hear my personal story, e-mail me at
