Hard Questions

Faux

We've all got to ask ourselves some hard questions these days. Do I stay or do I move on?
This article from Business Week provides some tips on how to approach this question.

On a separate note, one of my coworkers shared with me the saga of how his ex-fiancee broke up with him via a letter last year and how he's now demanding the engagement ring back from her via a letter. It amazes me how fast things can get nasty between two people who were supposed to spend the rest of their lives together happily ever after.

I think before you marry anyone, you need to conduct some serious due diligence. One of the questions you should ask a guy before you say yes is - Do you put the toilet seat down after going to the toilet. If yes, then he's well trained. ;-) There were some other questions, but I've forgotten them. Any suggestions for questions to ask that would ensure matrimonial bliss?

Pls. take this comment not personal. It is just a first thought and often the first thoughts are the best because they are unfiltered and most honest. My first thought was: if my girlfriend would stick the "yes/no" question on my answer on "Do you put the toilet seat down after going to the toilet?" I would be 100% sure that she not the right one.

I appreciate your comment. No offense taken. I hope you know it was meant in jest. I am in no way advocating that women walk around with clipboards interviewing their prospective suitors with a checklist of yes or no questions, which reminds me of a funny scene in the German movie "Shoppen". Nonetheless I suspect many women have a mental checklist.

Also, I highly doubt that the toilet seat question would be top of mind anyhow. It's probably ranked as a "nice to have", but not a deal breaker. :-)

I guess a letter is more personal than email.
