Conversation Starters For Marriage

Let’s talk for a minute here. We all know that communication in any relationship is key and in a marriage, it is extremely important. A strong marriage requires couples to be able to speak freely and openly about any topic, but especially about difficult topics that directly affect their relationship.

Conversations for a Stronger Relationship

So how do you do that? How do you make that happen? To help you tackle those tough conversations that impact your marriage, we have created conversation starters for couples specifically designed for those topics of intimacy, finances, family, and more!

When my spouse and I were engaged, we had to date long distance for a while, and it was tough. As we look back on that time, it was one of our most crucial bonding moments because of how much we talked. Talking on the phone or Facetime was all we could do, so we made the most of it!

Great for All Couples

As a new couple, we found books with questions for married couples and we devoured them in our conversations. We talked about everything from family to expectations to fears. Sometimes we would breeze through questions and other times, one question turned into a lengthy discussion. Having questions on hand really helped to spark the conversation and help us ease into conversations that might have otherwise been uncomfortable.

To give YOU that same strengthening experience, we have gathered hundreds (yes, hundreds) of questions for you and your spouse to conquer – all in one printable kit! The Conversation Starters Kit includes printables for creating your own unique carrying case for your cards, plus the 250 question prompts in the following categories:

  1. Intimacy – conversation starters to help with what could otherwise be an awkward topic to discuss.
  2. Finances – no one likes talking about it, but we all HAVE to! Use these conversation starters to help smooth out the process for both of you.
  3. Quality Time – learn more about your spouse on a deeper level than just casual conversation. These conversation starters will do just that!
  4. Romance – get on the same page romantically with these conversation starters!
  5. Family – like they say, it’s not about thinking alike. It’s about thinking TOGETHER! And that’s what these conversation starters are all about.

Note: This storage idea is completely optional. Your cards can easily be used on their own, or you could even use a hole punch and attach an index card/book ring to keep them together. You can’t go wrong either way!
