150 Newlywed Game Questions

By on August 23, 2016

Being a newlywed can be a really exciting thing in a person’s life. They have someone they know better than anyone else in the world by their side for the rest of their life. While they may know their spouse the best, you may not know them at all.

This game is particularly useful during bachelorette parties or even at a rehearsal dinner. You may think someone knows everything about their spouse, but playing this game can prove to be difficult for some couples!

It’s always a good time getting to know more about a person’s spouse and learning more about their relationship in general. It’s also really fun getting to stump either of them with some great questions to ask! These are some of the best questions to ask within each category. Try and see if you can stump them!


How to Play

There are a few different ways people play this game, but I’m going to explain the original style that is the most fun. The point of this game is to try and get the newlyweds to hold up the same answer for each question. Whichever person has the most question wrong at the end of the game is the loser!

First, you ask one of them a question like the ones listed below. Then both spouses write down their answer on a whiteboard. If the person who was asked the question matches with the other spouse’s correct answer, they get a point. This is really fun to see how much your spouse remembers and it’s also fun for everyone around to get to know the couple more.


Even though you may have met later in life, getting to know about your spouse as a child is really important. Therefore, before you get married you should know all about their upbringing and all of the important stuff that shaped them into the person that you feel madly in love with. Allowing your family and friends get to know a little bit about their childhood is also good fun, too.
