I am a lover of questions so I had to take up the challenge (but I can’t just limit myself to oldy-weds, so these are for anytime-weds).
Ask these questions of your sweetie.
♥ What is your favorite memory of us?
♥ What one achievement are you most proud of?
♥ What would be the perfect vacation?
♥ What one small thing can I do to make your life better/easier?
♥ What would you like to save for?
♥ What are you currently struggling with?
♥ How can I pray for you?
♥ Is there someone who needs help that we could help?
♥ Where do we need to cut back or simplify?
♥ What’s been on your mind a lot lately?
♥ What personal or couple dreams have died? (Do we need to revive them or find new ones?)
OK, so that was 11 questions (I snuck one in there). I did mention I love questions.
Ask the occasional question over dinner or spend the afternoon in a private place going through them. Listen and learn.
