I hope that my top 20 questions for couples will help to inspire some important dialogue between you and your loved one. I'm sure you can think of some more "get to know" questions, and even some fun questions for couples. I suggest open-ended questions rather than "yes' or 'no' questions, because they stimulate more in-depth discussion. Putting forth some effort to better understand each other now will have long term rewards for both of you.
