Let’s play 20 questions

Steppin' Out with AprilApril E. ClarkGlenwood Springs, CO Colorado

Some people talk to a minister or a marriage counselor before taking the plunge.But author Susan Piver, on Oprah.com, has dished out her share of premarital advice that might make the difference between a match made in heaven and a duo destined for divorce.Piver offers 20 questions to ask future husbands or wives before exchanging those holy vows.One such question is, “How much money do we earn together? Now? In one year? In five years? Ten? Who is responsible for which portion? Now? In one year? Five? Ten?”

Let’s hope two reporters don’t marry each other. Yikes.Another is, “Are we satisfied with the frequency of our lovemaking? How do we cope when our desire levels are unmatched? A little? A lot? For a night? A week? A month? A year? More?”Um, try never. Ok, it’s not that bad. Well, for some maybe.And don’t forget to ask, “Does one of us have an individual spiritual practice? Is the practice and the time devoted to it acceptable to the other? Does each partner understand and respect the other’s choices?”

I wonder if that includes psychic readings and channelings.

It’s happening in Rifle to boot: Garfield County Fair, all weekend long, Garfield County Fairgrounds. Information: http://www.garfieldcountyfair.comThis is why I’d kick it up here: The Scrambler, the ferris wheel, elephant ears and cotton candy. Kids love ’em all. But being a kid at heart myself, they sound great to me, too. It’s been years since I’ve been to a fair. As an Indiana girl, the county fair is as familiar as a pair of cowboy boots. Oh, who am I kidding? I’m more likely to wear a pair of flip flops. I hope I don’t lose them on the swings, like I did when I was a kid. Maybe I’ll wear Chacos instead.

It’s happening in Glenwood Springs to boot: Glenwood Defiance vs. Breckenridge Blue Goose, 1 p.m., Glenwood Park, south Glenwood Springs. Information: http://www.glenwoodrugby.comThis is why I’d kick it up here: Here’s the last chance to see rugby, Glenwood Defiance-style. The squad’s last match of the season is Saturday, and spectators are always welcome and treated like family. The match will be a great experience for anyone who has never seen rugby live and in person, or rugby fanatics who can’t get enough of the ruck. For newbies, feel free to ask plenty of questions. Go green.
