Top 5 questions to ask before getting married

Getting ready to tie the knot? Here are the top five things psychologist Dr. Alduan Tartt says you should be asking your sweetie:

1) How should we handle household finances?

2) What are your feelings and timetable for having children (if any) and why?

3) What are your religious beliefs about marriage and worship?

4) How much time do you feel we should spend on dating, spending time together, and talking daily/weekly?

5) How often do you envision us having sex?

HLN's Ryan Smith is getting married in just a few months to his fiancée, Dafina. The couple sat down with Dr. Tartt to make sure they have everything in order before saying, "I do."
