Concerned that your partner might not be “marriage” material due to his dark past? Do you want to avoid yet another year of engagement trying to prove to yourself that he's “the one”? Well look no further! With just 20 questions, you will come close to resolving all these uncertainties (plus, be a little surprised at the answer) and increase your chances of marital success. We have all heard similar complaints from our newly divorced girlfriends: - I thought I knew everything about him before we got married - I thought I asked him all the right questions - I wish I would have known he used to [you fill in the blank] This guide will not only help you settle all of those unknowns, but touch upon some issues you probably never considered before. As you explore this guide, you will take your potential “Mr. Right” through a series of questions in which you will score him on a scale of 1-10. You will then add up the scores of these questions and utilize a rating scale in order to predict your marital success. Each question touches upon subjects and issues that many women are too embarassed or complacent to tackle but must consider before settling down, such as the following: - Child Abuse (In 1999, an estimated 3,244,000 children were reported to Child Protective Services (“CPS”) agencies as alleged victims of child maltreatment.) - Domestic Violence (1 out of 5 of U.S. women will be beaten by a partner at least once in their lives.) - Alcoholism (Nearly 17.6 million adults in the United States are alcoholics or have had problems with alcoholism.) * * * * * Questions This Guide Will Help You Resolve: - Am I marrying Mr. Right? - How do I know if my gut instinct, which is telling me not to marry this man, is correct? - Does my partner have any secrets he is hiding from me? - How do I know if my marriage will last? - Am I doomed to divorce if I marry my partner? - How do I find out my partner's secrets in a short period?
