The Hard Questions: 100 Essential Questions To Ask Before You Say “I Do”

Author: Susan Piver
Thought-provoking questions that challenge and inspire couples to build a lasting, intimate relationship.When Susan Piver’s husband, Duncan, proposed, her first impulse was to break up with him. “How does one enter into marriage knowing that almost half of all couples these days get divorced?” she thought in a panic. “Suppose he wants to live somewhere I hate? What if I wish we had ten times more money than he wishes for, or he wants to spend more time with his family than I do?”One by one, she and Duncan answered these questions and many more, alternately delighted, appalled, infuriated, and mystified by the other’s responses. In exploring each area of uncertainty, Piver learned something about her husband-to-be, herself, and their relationship. Focusing on key areas of married life, such as home, money, work, sex, community and friends, family, and spirituality, her list of questions became the basis for this book. The Hard Questions should be required reading for engaged couples, newlyweds, and those in long-term relationships. It is a simple yet profound tool that will challenge and inspire couples to gain a deeper understanding of each other and build a lasting, intimate relationship. “This book of hard questions and exercises for couples is innovative and exciting.” –Andrew Weil, M.D.”Susan Piver is a deeply intuitive and innovative thinker. She has both tenderness and acuity regarding what concerns us. I could not recommend her more highly.” –Julia Cameron
