I love questions.
So I created a little gift for y’all. It’s a year’s worth of questions for couples.
It’s a pdf. You can “right click” on the above link and save to your computer or just click on the link and it will open in your browser.
Print it out, cut the questions into strips and put them all into a container (I used an almond container from Costco). Pull out a question a day to spark conversation between you and your spouse.
If a question does not apply to you or your spouse, just reframe the question so that it does. Change the “what” or the “who.”
I encourage you to create your own rules. Many of these questions are better answered if there is no limit on time, money, etc. This gives more room for options and imagination (I’d love to have advice from Florence Nightingale and live in Italy!).
When the answer revolves around people, you may want to give the option of adding “in addition to” or “other than my spouse.” And, honestly, I think it’s OK to change questions, add questions, give information not asked for, and so on.
The idea behind the questions is to give you and your spouse a starting place for conversation and learning more about each other.
Please remember to speak the truth in love and listen well.
