Dating questions about how well you know your mate
To test the strength of your relationship, we have devised 10 pertinent questions.
Note down your answers and ask your other half to guess your responses Where did you propose to her?
You could decide to target two questions a week and both of you write down your answers to them on paper or email them to each other.
Or simply share the answers verbally with each other, which has the added advantage of being able to laugh together at the responses you get.
Now, think back to the conversations you had when you first met. You probably talked about your most significant memories, your dreams and goals, and maybe when you lost your virginity.
You lost track of time and leaned in a little closer.
Has the spiritual temperature of our relationship been rising or falling through the years? Who enjoys sacrificing and serving more, you or me? What would be your reservations regarding his character? Do you sense that your gifts and talents threaten me as a leader? When you have a strong gift in a certain area, do I honor you by allowing your opinions to dominate my decision making in that area? Do I allow for your weaknesses, as I do my own, and lovingly make up for them with my strengths, or do I generally judge you for them? Do you feel free to confront sin in my life, or am I so offended when you do that youd rather not bother?
Who is inconvenienced more often in our relationship, you or me? Who is the chief servant in our family, the best example of servanthood? Lets say our pastor said to you, I want to nominate your husband as deacon (or elder). Or do you feel that youre carrying the heaviest load of responsibility regarding our marriage and family? Do I make room to allow your personal gifts and your ministries to blossom?
