105. How is your relationship with your immediate family?

This Question is definitely a must ask question. Like it or not, his/her family will eventually become part of your family. And once married you will see your in-laws frequently, so your relationship with them will most definitely affect these visits and their frequency.

You’ll fail to make a strong new family of your own if your partner is not into families themselves. Questions to ask are:


  • Are you close to your family?
  • Are you or have you ever been alienated from your family?
  • Do you have a difficult time setting limits with family?
  • How important is it that you and your partner be on good terms with each other’s families?
  • Do people in your family carry long-term grudges?
  • How much influence do your parents still have over your decisions?
  • How many siblings do you have?
  • Are you close to your siblings?
  • How often do you meet? When do you meet?
  • How often do you meet your parents?
  • Describe your relationship with your extended family.
  • Is there any family member that you have fallen out with? if so who and why?
  • How do you feel about living close to either one of your families?
