With my parents' 28th wedding anniversary coming up, I thought it would be appropriate to ask the next set of questions on dating/marriage. There are a lot more questions this time, but these are fun and easy to answer. :)
1. Let's say that you're living under your parents' roof, and you've met someone you really want to date. Do you have to ask your parents' permission?
2. Same premise, except this time, do you have to ask your potential boyfriend/girlfriend's PARENTS if you can date their son/daughter? Does your potential boyfriend/girlfriend have to ask for your parents' permission?
3. When you go/went on dates, do/did you have a chaperone?
4. Would cohabitation before marriage even be an option for you and your partner? (Well, without your parents/other family members exploding from rage).
5. You and your partner have just eaten a lovely dinner. Who pays for it? Or who had to cook it?
6. Does your ideal partner have to get along with your family (your parents, specifically)?
7. As a teenager, did you have a dating age restriction? (For example, some parents don't allow their daughters to date until 16.)
8. Is there a limit to how far apart in age you are from your partner?
9. Is there a certain age (or range) in which your family expect you to be married?
10. Let's say you and your partner are getting married. Do the two of you (and your families) only pay for certain things, or is it an even split?
11. Is divorce an option for you (without being shunned by the family)?
There! If you could, please answer these questions so that I may write a post about cultural differences in dating and marriage! As always, I'll be getting outside sources to answer these questions as well. I already have responses from the previous set of questions, so I'll be trying to write that post soon.
As a side note, I just wanted to ask you all to please keep my boyfriend, Joseph Whiting, in your thoughts and/or prayers. He had a heart attack on Thursday, the 5th of November, and will be in the hospital until further notice. I'd really appreciate it!
