Congratulations! You will soon be married to your life-partner… and his/her parents, siblings, family traditions and expectations!
Whether your fiancé maintains a close relationship with his/her family or not, you will soon find that their influence remains a part of who your fiancé is (and will be as your spouse). The same concept applies to you and the role your family will play in your married life.
Areas of Discussion
- Which traditions were important to you throughout your upbringing that you wish to continue on with the family you create with your spouse?
- Do you and your fiancé share the same faith? How will your religious beliefs be honored as a married couple?
- How do each of you define the “ideal” family size? When do you foresee raising children?
- Define the roles of husband/wife, man/woman as they relate to your involvement and interaction with one another.
