Looking for ways to better understand your spouse (or partner) and the people you care about?
Or would you like to get a quick but accurate sense of someone’s character on the first date?
It’s when people are pushed against the wall that you get to see who they really are.
But since you can’t really do that on a date without getting arrested or punched, why not try this collection of the best Would You Rather questions for couples instead?
So much safer — and still educational!
For each of these Would You Rathers (which are meant to be difficult), you’ll present one of the following choices:
- Two horrific or embarrassing experiences (that you’d probably never live down)
- Two experiences you would love but have to choose between
- Two sacrifices that would rip you in half (but only figuratively).
So, let the fun begin!
