Before I got married, I was raised to choose wisely when looking for my future husband. In essence, this is the person I'm spending the rest of my life with...so of course I figured I should find a respectable, preferably good looking, Christian man. Well I found that...and more...and with some strings attached. I mean, let's be honest (married ladies)...there's just some things about your hubby that you had NO IDEA about until that first night as official roommates for life!
So here's my list of things I wish I would have asked about my hubby prior to marrying him. In no way would these have been make-it or break-it situations...but I strongly feel I needed to be more prepared...mentally. :)
Future Hubby Questionnaire
1) What's your stance on insects? Are you a killer, catch and release, or run screaming?
This was a huge transition for me. The first time this scorpion/centipede looking insect walked across our living room floor, Matt jumped up and ran out of the room. I screamed (while perched on top of the couch) for him to return and do his duty. With that, he came back...grabbed one of the decorative throw pillows and proceeded to slam that bug to kingdom come! It was in pieces. My pillow was defiled...and He almost lost his voice. Now I realize I must train my son.
2) So you're great at basketball...but how do you correlate that to your ability to get clothes into the clothes hamper?
I don't understand this. I go out of my way to make an amazingly organized clothes hamper dresser...color coded!! And yet every night there's at least one article of clothing that didn't make the foul shot.
3) Exactly how much do you like chocolate? Not a fan, it's alright, just as dessert, or I'm in an addiction help-group?
I was blindsided. I knew Matt loved chocolate...but this was bad. The one day we didn't have any chocolate in the house and he resorted to cocoa powder...
4) What are your favorite tv shows?
I'll admit, when we were dating I was a tv junkie. I had a slew of shows that I religiously watched throughout the week. When we got married I got a DVR and my life was complete! ...until Matt figured out how to use the DVR (or maybe it was that he couldn't figure it out) and my shows got deleted...and replaced with numerous hillbilly reality shows!
...these are just a few. Again, I wouldn't have decided against marrying Matt for these. :) We actually joke about this stuff all the time! I feel like God put him in my life to shake up my rigidness...and boy is he!
What kind of things do you wish you knew before you got married? I'd love to hear!!
