Top Twelve Questions To Ask Before Marriage
5. What family traditions are important to you and how much time do you see us spending with relatives?
Discussing family traditions and talking about what is important to you and listening to your partner's preferences and traditions can help you come up with a creative way for you both to keep those traditions that matter most and to develop new traditions to suit your marriage.
Loving and accepting your partner's relatives is a must. However it is also important that you create healthy boundaries as a couple. Each of you is responsible to set boundaries with your own family and insure that your partner is treated with respect by your relatives. You should decide as a couple how much time you will spend with extended family and it is important that you not allow your family to interfere in your marriage.
