7 MUST-ASK Questions BEFORE You Get Married

Sometimes people get married, and then a year or two later realize that there are a bunch of things they wish they had known first. Inevitably, someone says “Didn’t you ask those questions before getting married?” I wrote this so you can avoid having that conversation…

As the author of Captain Kirk’s Guide To Women- How To Romance ANY Woman In The Galaxy, people expect me to have a one-sided view on the topic of love,  dating and people getting married, but they are often surprised…

“It’s less about who the other person is, and more about who YOU are.”

I read an article on CNN, on people getting married, and the advice was so practical; mostly about money, self-centered, and in my opinion, utterly UNIMPORTANT.

Here is a list of The 7 MUST-ASK Questions Before You Get Married:

1- Do I want to be a part of this person’s happiness?
2- Do I think my happiness is important to that person?
3- What kind of partner do I want to be?
4- Do I think my partner would like for me to be that kind of partner?
5- Am I a complete person without them? I should be. No one wants to be married to half a person.
6- Do I respect this person’s opinions, and do we disagree on a way that retains happiness?
7- Do I see myself adding to this person’s life in a positive way, and do I feel they do the same for me?

I think these questions (and there are probably more) are FAR more important than “Do we know what percentage of money we will each contribute?” or “Who is responsible for food shopping?”

Sure the question of Money is important, but that’s something that you can figure out together.

Yes, you might want to know whether the person wants kids or not, but you can figure it out together.

Someone has to do the food shopping, but it’s also something that you can figure out together.

-Especially if your priority is to figure things out together!

I guess that’s the main question- what is your priority when it comes to your relationship? Is it that the other person do stuff for you, or is it about WHO you get to be in relation to the other person?

Who are YOU to that person? Are you their hero, their mommy, their stability, their adventure, their clown, their lover- how often do you change roles, and do you enjoy each of them just because the other person brings them out?

So, I would say that it’s way more important to ask YOURSELF these questions before getting married.

If you liked this article, you might enjoy “The Luckiest Guy- How To Propose, Get Married, and Stay In Love… A Short Guide For A Long Life Together“, and for the Sci-Fi Fans, “Captain Kirk’s Guide To Women- How To Romance Any Woman In The Galaxy“, both by John “Bones” Rodriguez.

I know I’m writing this with a little bit of expertise, and maybe I’m a little taken away with myself here, but I’m just speaking my truth at the moment, and I reserve the right to completely change my mind at any time.

Bones Narrates Scooby-Doo!!

So, as an actor, we do whatever we can to perform and entertain, right? Well, one of those things is VOICE-OVER gigs. I’ve done a bunch of them for commercials, for programs on The Discovery Channel, and Comedy Central stuff.

For some crazy reason, this commercial I did for thee SCOOBY-DOO board game is really popular on YouTube, and I gotta say, it’s one of my favorite performances!

I was jumping around doing the voice in the office, and really stretching my voice at the end there. I think that when people see “Bones” they think “Bones” The TV show with David Boreanaz that I have never watched.

Look, as far as I’m concerned, I’m BONES, and I should have my own TV show!


Helping People with Stevens Johnson Syndrome on BLACK FRIDAY?

Today is Black Friday, and the stores are selling, selling, selling. Well today, I felt like I should be helping someone, and I realized that I have stuff to sell, and I could help people along the way…

One of my best books- “Half-Assed Health- How To Look Good Naked -WITHOUT Starving, Suffering, or Surgery” is available today for $4.99, and for every purchase, I’m going to give someone a 10-minute consultation, AND donate a dollar towards the Stevens Johnson Syndrome Foundation.

When you buy HALF ASSED HEALTH, you’ll realize how the Workout industry just churns people and makes money from their misery, making things FAR more complicated than thy need to be, so they can continue to make money on people’s fears.


In my book, I break down the SIMPLEST, EASIEST and FASTEST ways to change your body- and you can read it in ONE sitting.

Many people don’t know this, but when I was little I had Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, and it’s a horrible disease. In me, it was a reaction to Penicillin  and what happens is that your body actually BURNS ITSELF from the inside out. The people have to go to the BURN UNIT, and are treated for relief- there is no cure. Manute Bol died of it, as many people do.
80% of people are left blind in one or both eyes, and it’s pretty traumatizing. I was in the hospital for 2 months, and went to school very late into 1st grade, where all the kids thought I was very dirty (My skin was all different colors).

Anyway, I hope you’ll watch the video, and use $5 of non-shopping to help me make a small difference to some sick people, and get SEXY-LOOKING at the same time!

The Ralph Kramden of the Internet

I’m watching an old episode of The Honeymooners, and I feel like I’m watching myself on the screen; let me know if this sounds familiar to you…

Ralph (Jackie Gleason)  is nervous and wringing his hands because there’s a big package that was just delivered. He’s scared that his wife Alice was going to be mad because it was expensive, and he’s right when she learns he bought a piano. They need a refrigerator, but he bought a piano because:

“Don’t you know that there’s no better way to make money than having a hit song?”
“Yes there is- selling pianos to idiots who think they can write hit songs!”

I dunno about you, but that’s pretty much been my career in online marketing and making money at home!

This is where I’m supposed to tell you that I’m super-rich now, and the only way to do it like I did is to buy whatever it is I’m selling now.

But the truth is that I’m working on another thing that I think is a great idea, and looks good. I have been through a whole bunch of stuff, and I’m excited about the results that I see are possible.

If you want to stop “Ralph Kramdening”, take a look at this.

Life of Pi Review- BEFORE I’ve even seen it.

Life Of Pi- Alternate Movie Review“I’m so excited to see the Live-Action CALVIN and HOBBES movie… but why does it all take place on a boat?”- a super-clever friend wrote on facebook.

I just thought you’d appreciate that.

I’m going to do a bunch of other movie reviews. Here’s the thing, I’ve read the LIFE OF PI book- and all I’m going to talk about is the end, so if you haven’t read it- SPOILER-ALERT like a mutha f*cka…

When the book starts, we are told that the story “Will make us belive in God”, so I was kinda excited to hear some spiritually moving ordeal that would do that.

So I spent the whole time reading Life Of Pi  going through these well-written adventures, being excited and enjoying the narrative, wanting to know how the boy was going to get out of this predicament.  The orangutan, the tiger, the deaths, the island- all of that cool, and I was along for the ride.

Then the END happened…


At the end, I was reading on the train when I found out that it was ALL IN HIS HEAD.

What? It ends up that the orangutan was his mom, and that HE was the TIGER, who killed the other traveler, and who ATE the orangutan… WHAT?

Well, as I talk to people, it seems that I am not the only person who interpreted the end this way, but not everyone did either.

Either way, I regretted reading LIFE OF PI, and there is no way I’m seeing the movie! ARGH!!!

Best of all-


I can tell you all of this because I have been making money online for a few years- when I first started actually making money- instead of throwing it away on stuff I never used, my life totally changed:

I paid off my credit card in FULL

I took my girlfriend out on a DATE- and now she’s my WIFE!

I went out and bought NEW clothes

I even opened a SAVINGS ACCOUNT (what the hell is THAT?)
What will YOU do when you FINALLY start making money?

How will that FEEL? Are you SURE you’re ready? I thought I was ready, but I didn’t know what to do with the money when I made it. I had never had that kind of success before, so it scared me. I was nervous when we went on vacation- even though I had paid for it- in CASH- Before we went!

Did you get that? I paid for the vacation BEFORE we went. Who does that? And while I was away, I kept checking my account, and it was bigger every time.

Online Video Money Machine will show you how, step for step, to use the system to create the income YOU want. It doesn’t matter how many people use it, it doesn’t matter if you know computers or not.

I applaud you for reading this far.

If you have, then I know you are READY to make a change. Just like me, when you apply this system, you WILL create the income you’ve dreamt of:

  • Buy your family a home
  • Buy a vacation like I did- and pay for it CASH
  • I bought a 50″ Plasma TV and a HOME THEATER SYSTEM instead of my old junker!
  • Pay off your Credit Cards
  • Finally Pay back your Friends and Family

Look, I don’t want to beat a dead horse, but this is the #1 way for people who are just getting online to create a fast, easy income, that you can grow as you learn more. If you’re already an internet marketer, then you probably already know the power of what I have been talking about.

“The Luckiest Guy?” or BALLS?

So, when a guy gets married, it’s polite to call him “lucky“.

“Oh, she’s great- you’re a LUCKY guy!” people say. And whereas I’m sure it’s true sometimes, why is it that we say that? It’s not much of a compliment to the woman, now is it? “Oh, well- you got that girl, who OBVIOUSLY is an idiot, otherwise she wouldn’t have picked YOU!”

That’s an insult to both of them, isn’t it?

Like, he’s LUCKY that she had NO OTHER OPTIONS to choose from?

Well, I got news for you, and on behalf of all of us guys who were “lucky” enough to find some great women-


So maybe we were “lucky” enough that we HAD THE BALLS to ask out our women, court them, romance them, and eventually marry them. Maybe we were “lucky” enough not to let the opportunity pass us by, and instead put our hearts on the line and commit despite the fact that NO man actually wants to do that (yeah, I said it).

Women are EASY for Rich guys- Want to be one?

Maybe we were “lucky” enough that when she was crying we CARED and let her have a shoulder and a manly, soothing, protective hug.

Maybe we were “Lucky” enough to tell our friends “she’s the one” and tell the other women “sorry, I’m taken”.

But that hasn’t been my experience. For me, everytime I’ve found myself with a woman, it took some sort of RISK, I took a CHANCE, and it took BALLS for me to get there.

Saying hello takes BALLS.

Asking for her name when all you want to do is rip off her clothes takes BALLS.

Leaning in for the first kiss takes BALLS.

Saying “I don’t know what the future holds, but dammit, I want to spend it with you, and I’ll do whatever I can to put a smile on your face” TAKES BALLS.

And women like men with BALLS.

So yeah, I know some guys who are ultra-duds and they’re with some hot but so-desperate-I-was-getting-older-and-I-wanted-to-get-married women who were lucky to be in the right place at the right time, but even then- it took BALLS.

So next time you hear someone say that to a guy, just remember that even if he’s a sloppy, slovenly, dumb, ugly, unmotivated, broke loser- at some point, he had some BALLS.


So- do you have what it takes to get LUCKY?

It’s like growing a business– sure, some guys get lucky, but some guys GROW SOME BALLS AND GO FOR IT.

Will You?

P.S- If you’re a guy who “Got Lucky” with his woman, why not pass this around- no one will think yoy’re being arrogant, and if they do- f*ck ‘em! BALLS.

P.P.S- By the way, ALLLLLL of this stands for women too. And for women, it can be even harder, because you’re not expected to “Have Balls” I mean, the metaphor is… BALLS! Maybe we should call them “OVARIES”?

P.P.P.S- here’s my ballsiest moment, when I became a “Lucky Guy” and asked my girlfriend to become my wife:


Getting RICH while playing video games…

So here’s the thing:

I have stuff to do, and I don’t have a boss, but I still need to make money, right? I also need to listen to audios and get my mind right and learn new skills…

But HALO 4 came out.

Fortunately for me, I have now figured out that I can play HALO 4 while listening to the audios I get from THE EMPOWER NETWORK, audios that teach me how to markeet and earn money while I’m playing HALO 4.

So, in essence, I get paid to play video games… sorta!

See, what I’m sayin’  is that it all comes  full circle! I slay suckas on the HALO 4 arena, and I get paid while I slay. Just now I was playing a long game of capture the flag, actually getting my butt kicked by some tweens (i’m assuming), but I wass also listening to audios from Lawrence Tam, Tony Rush, and David wood.

I have been making money online for a while now, but I am just super-glad that now I can make money while I’m playing video games! Ha!

Of course, the truth is that there are little 6 and 7 year-olds that are kickin’ my a$$, but at least they will have to go to school!

Own Your Life?

“Have You Ever Thought About What It Would Be Like To Own Your Life?”

When you subtract out the sleeping time, working time, and things you have to do each and every day of your life, most people don’t have more than one or two hours a day to do what they would like to do; and then- do they have the money to do it?

We have discovered a way a person can learn how to “own their life” by building an business; and we have a system for doing it that is so simple anyone can do it. It doesn’t require selling, and the best part is it won’t take much of your time…


As A Man Thinketh- FREE Audio Book- by James Allen

This is a FREE Audio/Video reading of “As a Man Thinketh” by James Allen. I am Bones Rodriguez, and this book is one my absolute favorite new age books, so I chose to help the world and read it aloud so ANYONE can have it. I read it on Youtube, and am now embedding the video here:

When I first encountered the idea that your life is a result of your thought (positive thinking), it sounded pretty screwy.  However, as the idea really started to grow in my mind, I noticed more and more that people really do see things differently, and therefore, according to their view, life is different.

The book and movie THE SECRET came out, and it was about visualization and all of that, and it made it pretty popular. The idea of “The Law Of Attraction” cam out of this book.

Some people will hear me reading AS A MAN THINKETH by JAMES ALLEN, and will hear some beautiful poetry, and some great tips for life. Other people will hear my wonderful voice, and think they are hearing angels singing :-)

Other people will hear my voice, hate it, and will also hate the book. Those people will probably be pretty miserable in a lot of aspects in their lives, don’tcha think?

I am reading “As a Man Thinketh” not in the most perfect way, but I do my best here. You can feel free to pass this onto anyone you like, I did this just so it could be shared. It is a playlist from YouTube, and anyone looking for As a Man Thinketh by James Allen should really like this!

And if you haven’t read this post, it is something I wrote, that I think is pretty damn motivating too!
