The best way to avoid a awkward marriage-interview interview is to keep your questions civil.
That’s why the top advice to avoid interview-prep material comes from the folks at The Daily Meal.
The website provides a wealth of tips for making an interview less awkward, whether that’s to make sure a potential spouse is in your good graces, or just to make your own.
Here are the top things you can do when preparing for a potential marriage interview, according to the advice on the site.1.
Make sure you’ve heard the questions, even if you don’t agree with them.
If you have no idea what the interviewer is asking you, you can ask your partner what you like most about each other.
That can help get your question off your chest and get them to open up a bit.2.
Think of your potential partner as your audience.
If they don’t know who you are, don’t worry about it.
If your potential spouse does, you have to be ready to open with your real personality.3.
Don’t be afraid to share your feelings and experience.
If the interviewer asks about your experiences in the church, your response should be the first thing they ask.
If that’s not an option, be prepared to give some of your stories and experiences as well.4.
Don´t be shy about expressing your feelings.
Make it a point to express what you feel is right in front of the interviewer.
It could be a little more personal, or you could be doing it to be an example to the interviewer and their potential spouse.5.
Don`t be afraid of giving the interviewer the benefit of the doubt.
It might seem like an awkward approach, but it`s important to be honest and upfront with the interviewer so that they can understand that you feel the same way.6.
Don t forget to say thank you.
Say thanks, and then make a statement of appreciation.
If possible, say it with a smile or a nod.7.
Don, don t forget, say yes.
Don said yes, but also don`t give up on trying to make it work.
If everything seems off, say, �Hey, how about we talk about it later?”
That`s a great way to show that you`re open to talking.8.
If there is no one to talk to, ask to speak to someone.
If it`ll take hours to talk, make sure to do so as soon as possible.9.
Make an effort to communicate in person.
When you see someone, make a point of speaking to them.
Keep in mind that if you can’t do this in person, it might be hard to get them talking to you.10.
Don.t forget to thank them.
Give them something to remember you by.
You can always say thank-you after they`ve had their day with you, or even before they left the room.11.
Try to be friendly and approachable.
If everyone seems a little nervous, try to keep it light and friendly.
If all of your questions are just about what you want to hear, it may be hard for them to accept that you might be interested in hearing more.12.
Be honest about your thoughts and feelings.
It will be easier for them if you tell them your thoughts on a wide variety of subjects, and your feelings on the matter.
If anything seems off or awkward, you should tell them you were trying to understand what you were hearing.13.
Don�t forget the importance of keeping things positive.
If people start to feel a little bad, it’s time to stop talking and just be nice.14.
If anyone is uncomfortable, try talking to them in a friendly way.
If someone starts to say something you don`ts like, just try to find a way to change their perspective.15.

If this seems like it might not be a good idea, just say you�re open and listen to what they say.18.

Keep your answers brief and your questions short.
If necessary, say something along the lines of, �I want to talk about our relationship for a minute.
