70 Newlywed Game Questions to Ask Your New Spouse

Test how well you know your partner

If you’re looking for something fun to do on your next date night, why not take inspiration from the iconic ‘60s TV game show and ask each other some Newlywed Game questions? 

How to play the Newlywed Game

The game has a simple premise: quiz a newly (or soon-to-be) married couple about how well they know each other and their relationship — from their favorite snacks to who is more likely to hog up the bathroom in the morning. 

The Newlywed Game is usually played at engagement parties, bachelorette parties, and wedding receptions but that doesn’t mean you can’t play it on any given Tuesday. And you don’t really have to be married in order to play it. 

Asking your partner Newlywed Game questions not only teach you new things about one another but also reveal how much you know about each other.

Write down the answer to each question on a piece of paper (or the Notes app on your phone, if you don’t have pen and paper to hand). Then, take turns revealing the answers to each other and see how well you guessed each other’s answers.
