So, you’ve been with your partner a while now, maybe you’re even married, and you’re pretty sure you’ve discussed it all. You probably know more than you ever wanted to know about your partner. When you think you’ve heard it all, you find that there are those random moments where you learn something you’ve never knew about them and it sparks a deeper connection than ever before.
I hope you all can come away with a few new fun ideas for fresh, new conversations with your partner. There’s a smattering of light and quirky with some others that go deep. Sometimes we just need some ideas for new questions to learn a ton more about the love of your life.
