10 Questions for Oldyweds About Romance

You’re most likely familiar with the Newlywed Game. It’s where couples married under a year are asked questions separately to see how well they know each other.

Paul Byerly has challenged Christian Marriage Bloggers to post 10 questions about any topic near and dear to them to help “mature” couples see how much they have learned in that area.

Challenge accepted!

Here are the questions we want to pose to all couples who have been married 25+ years in regard to romance…

  1. What would you say it looks like to be romantic?
  2. What is your favorite romantic memory from the early years?
  3. What are you currently doing to pursue each other romantically?
  4. What are you doing to give away the experience and lessons you’ve learned in your years of marriage?
  5. What is one thing you’d like to do this year that would add to your romantic memories list?
  6. What song best describes your marriage from your perspective?
  7. What hobby would you like to pursue in retirement?
  8. What do you know now that you wish you knew when you were younger in regards to romance in your relationship?
  9. If you could do anything over what would it be and why?
  10. What have you found is vital to keeping the romance alive in your marriage?

BONUS: Share your answers to these questions with a couple who has been married under five years. Or post them as a comment to this post. Let’s learn from each other.

  2. I like this challenge, Debi. I’ve been on vacation, so I might’ve missed Paul’s challenge. I’ll have to take your questions and share my answers with some newly married couples or even do a post on them. Thanks for the ideas!
