Anniversary questions for couples

Celebrate each year of your life together by asking these anniversary questions for couples.

Of all the days in the calendar year, none is perhaps more meaningful that your anniversary – be it the day you became a couple or the day you got married (in our house we like to mark both!).

The anniversary questions for couples are designed to focus on the year you’ve just had and to also think about the year ahead. They’re a mixture of reflection, fun and seriousness.

Record your questions and answers in a journal that you can reflect on and add to every year (even write your answers in them first before you share them with each other!).
