No, not the one to get the temple recommend either. The one that seems to happen on first dates. The one that determines your date's FSP (future spouse potential). And lest either gender get upset, this is a mistake of both.
I have to give my cousin props. She went on one of these dates and hated every minute of it. Then, when the guy asked her out for a second date, she turned him down. He asked her why, and she responded "I'm just not ready to marry you. I'm glad my answers on your quiz last week were the right ones, but I don't want you to think that makes me the right one." Harsh? Yeah. But it opened up a discussion about what he should do next time he asked a girl out. And the guy thanked her at the end of the conversation.
The marriage interview functions a lot like a job interview.
"Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
How many children do you want?
Do you dye your hair?
How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
How close are you to graduating?
Do you feel okay about working outside the home after we...I mean...you have kids?"
Girls, you tend to ask these questions as well.
"How much money do you make as an (insert profession here)?
Do you pick your socks up off the floor?
Do you buy the newest gaming system right when it comes out?
Do you attend church on Superbowl Sunday?
How do you feel about watching TV at all on Sundays?"
Now, most of these questions are innocent, although, I would hold off talking about your children until you're a bit closer to being engaged. However, when fired off with little discussion between answers, the date is awkward. The party being interrogated gets scared, just like my cousin.
I once went out with a guy who insisted I answer the hair dyeing question. He told me that he wouldn't consider even dating someone who wasn't a natural red head. He thought he was narrowing down the playing field. I suppose he was right. No girl would go out with him after that got around. Doesn't get more narrow than that.
Girls talk to each other. Guys talk to each other. They will tell other people if they were quizzed on their FSP. Don't think of it as gossiping; think of it as helping a friend avoid an uncomfortable situation.
I hope all of you can find an EC as wonderful as mine!
