Kick boring conversations to the curb with these questions for couples.
I can still remember the first time I went on a date with my ex husband AFTER we had a child.
We had planned and budgeted and saved for this rare and miraculous event.
When the time finally came, we ate dinner and tried to think about what we could talk about other than our baby.
Cue awkward silence.
It was as though we couldn’t escape from the day to day of our lives – even for that one evening we’d anticipated so much!
Fast forward to my current (and forever) marriage, and almost the same issue occurred, except for this time instead of kids, it was work.
And what was worst about this was that we taught at the same school so all our work issues just got dumped into our date!
Two different relationships but the same experience made me wonder what it was about those date nights that were different to date nights when we…. well, when our relationships were a little newer.
It didn’t take me long to come up with the missing ingredient either – and that was curiosity.
See, when we’ve been with someone a long time – married or not – we start to become less curious about our partners.
We think that we know everything there is to know about them.
After all, we’ve seen them sleep. We’ve seen them be violently ill. We’ve seen their you-know-what face.
What else is there?
The answer is – plenty.
And you can find out all of these things, those things that might be hidden or might simply be thought to never be important, by asking the humble question.
And to make things easier and faster for you, you don’t even have to think of these questions yourself!
Instead you can find them all right here, in this collection of questions for couples.
