29. How much time do you want to spend with friends?

Friendships are very healthy for a marriage, you don’t want to be stuck in each others’ face all the time, as the old saying goes, distance makes the hearts fonder… fondness varies with distance.

This question will enable you both to have a healthy discussion about the friendships you have currently and how they are going to affect your relationship.

It is, however, important to realize that you will have to have much different priorities now that you are getting into married life and the tricky part will be to maintain the balance.

It is also important to acknowledge that someone new has a right to your time and it is important that you give them sufficient attention to be able to have a successful marriage.

Some questions that can be discussed are:

  • How many nights per week do you spend with friends?
  • What activities do you do with friends?
  • How many of them are in relationships? Could you go on double dates?
  • Would they be comfortable to tag you along?
  • Ask yourself, would you be ok if your spouses’ friends tagged along with you too.
