Get to Know Your Spouse Questionnaire – Deployment Idea 4#

Note: I may earn money or products from the companies, products, or links mentioned in this post.

Finding ideas to get through this deployment has been fairly easy. I came up with this idea to get to know your spouse awhile back and have not had the opportunity to write about it yet. I am very excited about sharing this and I hope you will enjoy reading about it and using the questions to learn more about your spouse.

Get to Know Your Spouse

During deployments and sometimes just during life, we stop learning or gathering information about our spouse. We get busy and think that once we are married we don’t need to do these things anymore. However, I feel that a good marriage is one where you are consistently learning about and getting to know your spouse. Look at this quote:

“When a man is trying to win the heart of a woman, he studies her. He learns her likes, dislikes, habits and hobbies. But after he wins her heart and marries her, he often stops learning about her. If the amount he studied her before marriage was equal to a high school degree, he should continue to learn about her until he gains a college degree, a master’s degree and ultimately a doctorate degree. It is a lifelong journey that draws his heart ever closer to hers.” Fireproof (the movie)

Get to Know Your Spouse Even Better!

Get to Know Your Spouse Questionaire

During deployment, it’s often hard to do these things. Communication is sparse, and there aren’t long periods of time where you can just “chat.” I was thinking about this one day and came up with an idea: a printable list of questions to ask during date night or any night to help get to know your spouse even better!

So here is what I did: I created a printable sheet of 20 questions (copied from The Love Dare by Stephen and Alex Kendrick) and three pages worth of questions with plenty of room for you to write.

Deployed spouse? Here’s what you do:

1. Print 2 copies of the questionnaire (a total of 6 pages).

2. Fill out one copy with your answers.

3. Stick both copies (your finished one, and the blank one) in an envelope with an addressed and already-stamped envelope and mail it to your spouse. You could attach these to an email as well, but it’s much more romantic and fun to send it in the mail!

4. Your spouse will get your answers, read them, and then fill out their own copy and send it back to you in the self-addressed envelope you already provided.

It’s very easy, and you saved them time and money by having the envelope all ready to go. All they need to do is fill it out and send it back!

Spouse at home? You can play along too!

1. Print 2 copies of the questionnaire (a total of 6 pages).

2. Sit down with your spouse and fill them out together OR bring them with you on a date and take turns asking and answering.

This is perfect for an upcoming Valentine’s Day date! Use it to get to know your spouse and then save the questionnaire somewhere safe so you can take time to remember and look back at what your spouse said.
