    75 Questions you Should ask Before you Get Married

    questions to ask If you and your partner have decided to get married then you will no doubt assume that you know each other inside and out but this can sometimes usually not be the case. 

    Even for those couples who have been together for years before they decide to walk down the aisle there may still be issues that you didn’t discuss. 

    Whether your marriage is successful in the long term could depend on the issues that you haven’t talked about so even though you are busy making your wedding plans and thinking about your future together, it is crucial that you set aside some time before you actually get married and ask yourself and your partner these questions.

    Bride Speech Advice

    brides-speech Following the rules of etiquette the speeches on any wedding day are generally made by the groom, the best man and the father of the bride. 

    These speeches have been a long standing tradition at most weddings but over the years it has become a modern twist for the blushing bride to give a speech.

    For a bride to give a speech at her wedding it could be for a number of reasons.  It may be that her father is no longer there and she feels it only right that she says a few words in his absence or it might just be that in front of her family and friends she wants to thank them for coming to witness her commitment to her partner.

    Stag Weekend Deep Sea Fishing

    deap sea fishingYou've heard the stories about a man catching a fish and how it was "this big" and with deep sea fishing, this does not have to be an over exaggeration at all, you actually might catch something that is "this big" and you will have the photographs to prove it.

    You've all seen the programs on the television showing celebrities fishing for large fish or sharks and the strength they need to reel them in. 

    You get drawn into their excitement and feelings of disappointment should the catch get away and if you have watched these shows and thought to yourself, I could do that, then this is definitely the activity for you.
