eIt’s amazing how little couples truly know about each other before getting married. It’s possible that fewer couples would get divorced (or even get married in the first place) if they actually knew each other well enough before they got married. The best way to get to know someone is with questions and honest answers. 1000 Questions For Couples is a great way to get to know your partner. Whether you’ve been dating 5 months or married for 500 months, you must absolutely know your partners’ answers to these questions.
1000 Questions For Couples is perhaps the most comprehensive, detailed version of “20 questions” out there. These aren’t simple questions either, like “Who was your first kiss?” Instead, these questions are really going to help you and your partner understand each other on the deepest level imaginable. Whether you’re talking about religion, children or finances, this guide will show you the right questions to ask so you can be sure you’re getting the best, most honest answer out of your partner that you can.

1000 questions is a very long list of questions, so don’t try to tackle this all at once. If you’re thinking you can sit down with your partner and run through these questions over a few glasses of wine, you’ll be very disappointed. Not only are there literally a thousand questions contained in this guide, many of them are going to open the door to bigger, longer conversations. It will take you a long time to work through these questions with your partner, but getting to know your partner on this deep a level is absolutely well worth it.

The Full 1000 Questions For Couples Review
Michael Webb, author of 1000 Questions For Couples, doesn’t play around. He delves right into the nitty-gritty of the book, starting with a list – a long list - of questions right off the bat. The pages aren’t divided up very well, so it might be a bit difficult to sort through the ones you want to ask first. Of course, you can always go in order from top to bottom, because none of them are pointless or useless. Each one will get you and your partner thinking, and quite possibly start a great conversation between you two that will end up connecting you to each other even more.
Very few of Michael’s questions require simple “yes” or “no” answers. If they are, there are follow-up questions to ask that will delve into the “why’s” or “how’s.” Don’t plan on inundating your partner with a lot of these at first, because they’re very invasive and required detailed answers. A few of them down the line and your partner may feel like they’re being grilled in a criminal investigation. Read through the book once first, to get an idea of what types of questions are contained within the guide as well as to get a feel for which ones are best asked when.
As the book goes on, they get more and more loaded. However, they will provide you with a lot of insight into you partner’s true feelings and vice versa. You’d be surprised at how well you can get to know someone through just a few questions!
For example, some of what Michael suggests you ask your partner are:
“If you suddenly became blind, how would your idea of the perfect mate change?”
“There are many types of love. Can you name some and tell how they are different?”
“What skill do you wish you had but haven’t learned yet?”
“If you were given $50,000 to throw a party for all of your friends, what sort of party would you put together?”
Of course, many of the questions are best saved when you’ve at least been on a few dates with your partner or know you are heading into a more serious, committed type relationship. Topics like who would pay for the wedding, how many children would be had and what religion the children will be raised as are all ones you want to avoid if you’re still in the newer stages of the relationship. Use your discretion when asking your partner these things and be ready to answer the same question yourself!
Michael includes two excellent companion guides with the download of 1000 Questions For Couples. You’ll find these guides handy throughout the course of your relationships!
