Discussion on: What is the worst question you have ever been asked in a job interview?

I only ever applied to two internship positions until now, but my very first one was a sort of group interview where we had to introduce ourselves following a predefined presentation.

At some point it involved pretty personal stuff like health issues, religious affinities and who you live with (to which the HR interviewer frequently asked "Girlfriend/boyfriend? If so do you plan on getting married/live together?"). I don't know how standard those kinds of questions are, but in a room full of people I didn't know, it felt very invasive. I just skipped over that personal questions section and it might be why I never got to the second round of interviews.
