Would you rather in-law edition: 50 fun family questions

Would you rather in-law edition is a fun game to play with your spouse and friends – even your in-laws if you dare!

A happy couple sitting on the couch, both holding a cup of coffee, while asking each other these would you rather questions in-law edition

Ah, the in-laws. The stuff of bad jokes and horror stories.

Having been married three times, I am not un-struck by the fact the only mother-in-law I ever got on with was the mother of the husband that was a complete jerk. It’s hard getting the perfect combo. (My father in law is pretty neat though!)

And it’s true that few other relationships have the potential to cause, if not full-on grief, then small and constant irritations in our lives. One could almost say that in-laws are the grains of sand in the oyster shell of your relationship.

But why not make a pearl from these grains of sand? You can change the conversation with your spouse from a complaint about your mother in-law’s constant critiques into how you fold your tea-towels into a fun game that enhances your couple connection.

If you’re nodding your head, I bring to you, Would you rather in-law edition.

Now, would you rather is a fun and easy game that prompts players to choose between two scenarios. It’s perfect for adding some humor to your couple interactions, or even to play with friends on a double or group date.

(While the questions have been designed for you and your spouse to ask each other, you could get super brave and play it with your parents or your spouse’s parents with some small tweaks to the questions).
