1001 Questions to Ask Before You Get Married

The relationship expert from the Ladies’ Home Journal, the Wall Street Journal, and Lifetime Television shows how to prevent marriage problems before they start

There’s nothing wrong with starter jobs and starter homes, but starter marriages? Relationship expert Monica Mendez Leahy is on a mission to help readers make their marriage last. Her 1,001 Questions to Ask Before You Get Married offers a reality check for couples on the marriage path, helping them realize how much they have yet to discover about their partner’s nature, thought processes, lifestyle, and marital expectations.

Engaged couples learn to discuss issues deeper than “chicken or fish” and to broach subjects that are often ignored before the nuptials yet essential for the foundation of an intimate, long-lasting relationship. Posed in a variety of fun formats, including multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, and hypotheticals, these questions include topics such as:

“Does your partner feel that you’re too attached to your parents?” “Is there such a thing as innocent flirting?” “Is it OK to cheat on your taxes?” And more

  1. A must-have book and fun to read, too Hmmm… A person who has been successfully married for a long time and has known her husband for 10 years before tying the knot, supposedly picks up this book, realizes it doesn’t offer her anything, and then gives it a negative review? Hello. Talk about a complete disconnect, and a wholly unfair review. 

  2. Why do I carry this book in my bridal salon? This is the only marriage preparation book I carry in my bridal boutique because of its common sense, secular and all-inclusive content. The book’s questions, tips and advice can benefit any type of relationship-professional, personal as well as matrimonial. I have gotten good feedback from my customers. Many brides have told me that the questions in the book can be turned into a fun wedding shower game. 

  3. Parents should give this book to their kids. Gave this to my daughter and her fiancee to prepare them for the most important decision they’ll ever make. They laughed at first, but can’t stop talking about how much fun it is to ask all the questions. The sections about finances and in-laws are particularly good. I am recommending this book to all my friends who have kids of marrying age.
