120 Newlywed Game Questions to Ask Your New Spouse

Test how well you know your partner
Read time: 5 mins

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 movie to who is more likely to hog up the bathroom in the morning. 

The Newlywed Game is usually played at engagement parties, bachelorette parties, bridal showers, and wedding parties 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 this party game. 

Asking your partner Newlywed Game questions not only teaches you new things about one another but also reveals how much you know about each other. From your first kiss to your favorite color, knowing the small details about your partner shows how much you care — and might reveal who is the better listener! 

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!
