comment Translation for “things you don't agree on”
@xiaohouzi79 In that case you may want to give them your advice in private instead of on the wedding, and the wording won't matter.

comment Why don't all questions have the “ma” 吗 particle at the end?
@xiaohouzi79 I see your point. I admit this answer isn't very explicit, but I still find all three questions answered. The OP already noticed the difference between questions begin with WHAT and yes-no question and had a theory in place to explain, that is, it (ma) is 'only necessary for turning a declarative statement into a yes/no question' and it is 'not used for all questions of the forms who, what, why, etc'. This answer first confirmed that statement, then recapped it in another way, essentially 'yes, ma is required for yes-no questions but not interrogative questions'. What else?

comment Can someone explain the differences between these sentences?
I think this question is too localized and not likely helpful to future visitors...

comment Why don't all questions have the “ma” 吗 particle at the end?
@xiaohouzi79 That was added by you isn't it? My reading of OP's question is to confirm his understanding in his last statement, which is what this answer is positively acknowledging on.
