Social construction of marital reality:

1. How similar are your views on topics that really matter to you (i.e., not similar at all: we would hate each in a week; fairly similar: we could probably peacefully coexist; very similar: we would be blissfully happy for a very long time)

2. Based on your answers to the above, will your marriage "make it" or will you be part of the 38-40% divorce rate? Why or why not?

2. Based on your conversation with your "spouse," what are the three areas that are most important to you in terms of being "happy" in a marriage?
