Getting into arranged marriages can be a little uncomfortable for both men and women. Meeting someone for the first time, getting to know each other, and finding out more about each other’s interests, hobbies, lifestyles, and more can be a tedious process. It may take a while for you to figure out who this person is. Therefore, we decided to help by suggesting 50 questions to ask at your first arranged marriage meeting as they will help you figure out his personality. These questions are not enough though to judge his character, but they will help.

Try to memorize some of the questions (or most of them for better assistance) instead of reading them from your notepad or a piece of paper as this may be a bit awkward. Moreover, feel free to ask other questions that you wholeheartedly feel comfortable asking. Questions like “What’s your favorite color?” “What’s your zodiac sign?” and “How many siblings do you have?” will always be classics.
