How Well Do You Know Your Husband? 135+ Questions You Need To Ask Him!

How well do you know your husband? This is a question that every woman needs to ask and one I want you to think about as you read this post.

Kelly and I have been married for just over 20 years, and I love continuing to get to know him more and more every day. Even after all these years, I still learn new things about him.

He is my best friend, and yet there is still so much I do not know about him.

The more we get to know these men we call our husbands, the more we can show up for and support them. And the more we get to know them, the more they, in turn, spend the time to get to know us! It’s a win-win. Strong marriages are built on emotional and physical intimacy.

It is important to remember to allow honesty. These questions may have tough answers that you may not want to hear. But I firmly believe that the way to make things better is to ask important questions and provide space for candor and openness in all responses. All judgments need to be left at the door on this one. Let feeling be expressed freely. Fight the urge to defend or minimize your partner’s feelings or opinions. They are being HONEST, and you have to respect that. You may learn a lot by really listening to how your spouse feels.

Good Luck + Much Love,
