25 Questions to Get to Know Your Spouse
We all think we know our spouse better than anyone, right? I mean, we live with them. We are around them every day. But, if you stop to think about how much you really talk to your spouse, it's not a lot. Get to know your spouse today using the great (fun!) questions in this post! Print the questions here.
Sure, you talk every day. What's for dinner, who's picking up the kids from soccer practice, did you line up the dog sitter for vacation, don't forget to pick up milk on your way home.
But, when was the last time you really talked to your spouse?
Why It's Important
Communication and intimacy are so important in a strong marriage. Opening up and being vulnerable is one of the best ways to show someone you trust them.
If you are willing to share embarrassing things or your biggest hopes with someone without fear of ridicule, that shows a lot of trust. Psychology Today says that getting to know your partner, especially the parts you may not like or agree with, are great ways to build a lasting relationship. Women's Health lists confiding in each other as one of their top 10 ways to build trust in your relationship.
In the spirit of getting to know each other, I decided to write up 25 questions that can be used to get to know your spouse better. These can be used on date nights, during dinner (if you don't have kids!), before bed, or during pillow talk.
This is supposed to be fun, people! Have fun with it, and most importantly, NO JUDGING! Judgement to zaps the intimacy factor. My suggestion would be to print out the questions, get a mason jar, and put them in. Then, whenever you want, pull out a question and you both answer it. You can also make up your own questions and put them in the jar!
