Hello Nikita

Is this for homework?

Customer: replied 9 years ago.
yes it is one part of it as I am trying to figure out how much emotions plays into relationships and not using critical thinking when couples dive into marriage and then end in calling it quits.
Expert:  Ms Chase replied 9 years ago.
Critical thinking entails asking who, what, when where and why. When a person gets into a relationship, it's important that they ask themselves

who is this person I am getting involved with
why am I getting involved with them
why would i marry them

When deciding which questions to ask, you should first ask yourself what am I looking for? What do I want out of this relationship? Then if you are thinking critically, ask yourself, 'why do i want the things I do?', and 'why am I expecting those things?'


Thinking critically allows us to think with our heads and not just with our hearts, to make sounder decisions based on how things are, not just how we want things to be.

I hope this helps, let me know if you want to talk more
