I asked my dh all the important questions. I knew we would get along and enjoy life together and we do.

I would discuss credit scores, debt and if you want children or not :)

I think kids is a big one

 bathroom time??? Really? Who asks someone something like that? Better yet. who doesn't know that info about an SO anyway? There are certain things you observe about someone. There is no need to ASK questions like bathroom time and how often will your parents visit.

I totally agree w/ Chuck there are certain basics (personality and behavioral traits) you need to look evaluate. The rest is just trivial stuff.

While it is important to ask questions it is just as important to watch how the person interacts with people they have known a long time. It is easy to know the right answers, but hard to fake authentic interaction.

 I honestly jumped in to marriage at 20 without any thought to any specific questions. We just learned and grew as we went along.

I agree with Joanie that the more time you spend with somebody and the more you talk and hang out, the more you won't have to ask all these little questions because you will know the anwers.

I've never been married, but my SO has told me way more than I wanted/needed to know...
