I've been seeing a lot of blog posts floating around out there with titles like "50 questions to ask your spouse on a date night". Or sometimes television and movies are used as the prime way of spending time together. I certainly love my shows and I love cuddling with my hubby, but I've learned how important it is to stay connected, and while it's ok to have TV and cuddle time, that's NOT going to cut it if that's all you do. Almost all have the purpose of helping you get to know each other better, but also to give you something to talk about when your mind is drawing a blank. I like these Fun and Random questions because they're not your typical questions you'll see in other posts, like "what is your favorite food, favorite hobby, biggest dreams" or sometimes the questions get really deep so that you can really dig into your relationship and what is happening there. In fact, I may make a future post about my favorites from those lists. ;)Research has found that people are happier when they have more fun in their lives. The other half of each couple stays in the room, and answers questions about their mate/date. The host/hostess tailors some planned questions to the group and to certain couples.(The odd person, or the host, can be the one to stop the music).Turn some music on, and begin the game by selecting 2 people to dance with each other (fast or slow). What would be the best thing about not having a sense of smell?
If you could project yourself into the past, were would you go?
What is the best sports stadium/arena you have been to? What would you refuse to do for one million dollars? If you were home on a rainy Sunday afternoon, what movie would you want to see on television? What historical figure would you most like to have a discussion with? If you could close one fast food chain, due to disgusting food, what would you pick?
If you went to a psychiatrist, what would he/she say you suffer from? If you could be on the cover of any magazine, what would you choose?
Sometimes all I can think to talk about is stuff about the kids or the schedule for the week, etc.
But this post is to give you some questions that are a little more fun and crazy, AND yet most of them will still help you get to know your spouse a little better. Studies have also shown that the most happily married couples are happy because they have a lot of fun together." -from 5 Tips To Increase The Fun In Your Marriage-I found these from a board game we have.
