Questions That Her Parents May Ask

Question 1. About the seriousness of intent. This question is inevitable, and you will have to answer it. If the wedding with a girl is not near, you shouldn't swear to her parents in loyalty and endless love for their daughter. In life, everything can change, and then it turns out that these were empty words. It is important to have a respectful, caring, reverent attitude to your girlfriend. This will be quite enough for such a visit, but some parents may rush to the question of marriage from the get-go, so keep this in mind.

Question 2. About family, children. The question about children is inevitable. In any case, it is worth answering it according to your own feelings. The answer should be honest and polite. If there are no children in the near future, it is not necessary to declare that you don’t plan them at all. You just need to focus on the fact that everything is ahead of you two, it is too early to think about children, and now you should focus on your career/education.

Question 3. About future plans. The question of plans for the near and long-term future can be answered directly. Everyone has their own plans and dreams, and you can voice them. Don’t lie about your plans, it is a risk that isn’t worth it.

Question 4. About yourself. What is your hobby? Where do you study? What kind of person are you? What do you like/dislike? etc. There are lots of variations of the same question. When answering, you can talk about your hobbies, interests, positive traits of character. The main thing is not to praise yourself too hard and not to look like a narcissist. You can objectively tell them about your successes, achievements.

Question 5. About your family. You should talk about the family, parents, who they are, etc. No need to delve into family relationships, give all the nuances of the family life and all the struggles that you’ve been through.
