    Why?

    Do you have any religious, ethical or cultural reasons why you think people of different races should not marry?

    How often do you pray?

    Why do you pray?

    Do you have any superstitions?

    What are they?

    The Bible emphatically states that eternal life only comes through belief in Jesus Christ and his sacrifice. If you are a Christian, how do you feel about living with someone who does not have the same hope of eternal life?

    What if they worshipped some other god than Jesus Christ?

    If you and your mate had significantly different religious beliefs, what would you teach your children about God?

    Would you want your mate to teach your children things that contradict your beliefs?

    Do you believe most people who convert to their mate’s religion do so out of keeping peace in the family or because they sincerely understand and believe the tenets of their mate's faith?

    To what extend do you think God expects us to follow and obey religious leaders?

    Does your religion have a policy on contraception?

    What is it?

    If you don't go to church at all or very often, do you think that might change when you have children?

    Why wait until then?

    Can you think of anything that might make you want to stop attending church?

    Do you think God created rules and instructions (a religion) to help men keep close to him?

    Or do you think man just made up those rules?

    How many hours a week do you typically devote to your religious practices (e.g. going to church, prayer meetings, bible study, etc.)?

    Do you believe that the Satan of the Bible actually exists?

    If so, what is he doing?

    Why is he evil?

    Which religions do you think are the most harmful and destructive?

    Some people say they are "spiritual" but not "religious".

    What does that mean to you?

    If you pray, what do you give thanks for and what do you ask for?

    Do you fear God? Why or why not?

    Do you believe that God does anything that does not make sense?

    Can you always apply human logic to analyze religion?

    If we currently attend the same church but years from now I lost interest and stopped attending, how do you think that might affect our marriage?

    Why do you think the Bible states that Christians should meet regularly with other believers and worship Him?

    Do you think you could kill a person if they were threatening the life of your loved ones?

    Would you be able to marry someone who formerly was in a gay relationship or had a few homosexual experiences prior to dating you?

    Is there anyone you would be willing to die for?

    Do you vote regularly?

    Do you vote straight Republican, Democrat or other party?

    Or do you analyze each candidate and vote for who you think is most qualified regardless of party affiliation?

    Are you currently involved in any criminal activities right now?

    Would you steal a car for $200,000 if you would be certain that you would not be caught?

    What about for $1,000,000?

    How would you feel if one of your friends said he or she was gay?
