Today we are going to talk about questions we can ask our spouses that don't involve paying the bills or packing lunches. These questions are going to help us to get to know this partner we have decided to life with. According to our new holiday called Turn Off Your Phones, we have committed to talking face to face with the people around us. We are vowing to turn off our phones, ipads, notebooks, computers, and maybe even your beepers if you are old school. Just you and the person across the table. I threw out some questions for us to ask our children here.
Lets do this.
*Would we consider adoption?
*What things can I do that show I appreciate you?
*What achievement in my life would bring you the most joy?
3. I'm adding a few here of my own. The websites above have some wonderful questions. Some of them are pretty intense, so I also wanted to add some that are just fun conversation starters:
a. If you could start a non-profit, what would it be and whom would it serve?
b. If you could go back to school to study something else, what would it be? Why?
c. If we had 2 days to do anything and money weren't an issue, what would you want to do?
d. Is there a dream or desire you have that you've never told me?
e. What would you like to do to celebrate our next big anniversary?
f. If you could compete in the Olympics, what sport would it be? Why?
g. If you could create an alter-ego on Facebook or Twitter, what kinds of things would you want to talk about?
h. If we could redo our wedding, what would you change?
i. Would you want to be a famous movie star or rock star? Why or why not?
j. If you could invest $1 million in a start up company, what kind of company would it be?
k. Would you rather be rich or healthy?
These are just a few. Take time to sit with your spouse and enjoy an evening together. Skip the questions that are going to start an argument. Save that for Dec. 2nd.
