100 Questions To Ask Your Spouse

In Advice and Encouragement, Marriage, Relationships by Debra Fileta

It’s not uncommon to hear married couples, who are on the brink of divorce around the 20-year mark, say that they don’t know each other anymore. Despite spending two decades together, they feel like they are strangers. The reason is that over time, people change, grow, and evolve. The person you are twenty years after marriage is not the same person you were on your wedding day. The key to a successful marriage is to stay emotionally connected with your spouse so that you can experience the changes with them.

Emotional connection is the way that you remain “in the know”. It’s an opportunity to get to know them on a regular basis. It’s a learning process that never stops. because change and growth never stop. If you only hold onto the person, they were 20 years ago, you miss the person that they are today. And that’s a grave mistake to make in marriage.

To help you strengthen your emotional connection, I have compiled a list of…
