Open Ended Questions for Married Couples

Found this here and thought it was worth repeating:

Paul David Tripp gives a list of open-ended questions for marriage counseling, or perhaps even for us to evaluate and see our own relationships with new eyes:

  • What things did you see in this person that made you want to marry him?
  • What were your goals for your marriage when you were engaged?
  • What things in your marriage make you sad?
  • what things in your marriage make you happy?
  • If you could press a button and change your marriage, how would it change?
  • In what ways do you think God is honored by your marriage?
  • How would you characterize your communication with your husband?
  • Describe how you and your husband arrive at decisions.
