    OK what about husbands that don't care about religious stuff? Like mine, I do pray and believe but he is far from it and if I ever mention it he will get really upset. All this reconnection exercise involve the religious aspect and it makes me feel like I have no chance in rebuild our relationship :(

    1. Dear Anonymous,

      Yes, some of these prompt questions refer to a life of faith in the Lord. You can always alter them to your liking.

      It should give you hope... any re-connecting and communicating is setting the foundation for rebuilding a marriage.

      I would suggest praying for him daily. Don't lose hope! God can change any hardened heart.

      Love, Traci Michele

    2. My husband is the same way. My church just began a study with the book Power of a Praying wife by Stormiest OMartian. It's spoken highly of, you should check it out.

      When you talk about spiritual things, he might see it as pressure to be a certain way even if that is far from your intention. try backing off and not speaking about spiritual things for now until you build a closer relationship in other areas and hopefully he will grow in confidence that you accept and love him for who he is now. Then he might feel more open about his spirituality and able to discuss these things.

      This happened years earlier in my own marraige. It worked for me, and though he still isnt the daily scripture reader I was previously hoping for, I am now more able to see my husbands spiritual strengths.

    I wish I was able to do this with my husband. But sadly he passed away just 15 days ago. I plan to make a scrapbook about my husband and our life and think I can use some of your questions as inspiration for some of my pages. Thank you for the ideas. By the way what really got my attention was your name. You see my name is Traci Michelle also last name being Jones though. Thank you!

    1. Wow Traci...my heart goes out to you:( I was just looking through this post thinking if I should maybe do this with my husband. It's just so easy to think you have forever but we never know what the future has in store. I will pray for you and for your heartache. And I will spend some time getting to know my husband better in honor of your own lost love. I love the idea of your memory book too! What a great way to spend some time with his legacy and works in your life!

  14. I just wanted to let you know that I shared this on the Wild Ruffle FB page today - I think it's such a great list! I'm going on a trip with my husband in a couple of days, and really looking forward to chatting about some of these questions during our time away!:)

    Oh my gosh Traci Jones, I am so terribly sorry for the loss of your husband! I'm sure he was a blessing and a wonderful man. Keep those precious memories alive and remember them each passing day. I don't know you at all, yet I hurt for you. I couldn't (can't) imagine a day without my husband in my life. I worry about the possibilities daily as he makes his one hour drive to work and back home. Ever since 9/11, we realized we need to make the most of each passing day.

  16. My husband and I are moving in 2 weeks and will have a 5 hour drive to our new home. This will be a perfect activity to do with him as we start our new adventure!

  17. I love this idea! My husband and I are moving in 2 weeks and with a 5 hour drive to our new home this will give us something great and productive to do! I especially love this because a few of them talk about the future and we have so much to look forward too!

  18. I am going to put these questions into my "Notes" app on my phone. Whenever we are riding in the truck for any length of time I'll be able to ask my hubby some of these questions. Too often we go some where and not say a word for the entire drive. We aren't mad at each other, we just don't have anything to talk about and I hate that. We've been married for almost 31 years. These are such good questions! Thank you!

  21. I can't just thank you for these sweet words, they give me a lot of new ideas ( may be evil ones ) :)

    I like the idea, but I'm sorry my husband would hate these questions. He would think most of them are a waste of time and the answers would be forced. These is a girl's idea of fun, not a guys.

    Wonderful questions, thank you Traci. I have sent them to my wife-to-be with my answers, and eagerly await her emailed reply. We have been going through lists of questions by email, until we can be together permanently, and get married. It is good to know more about your partner, and having exhausted her question lists, these we will enjoy together now.

    It always depends on the couple, I've done something like this where we each write up questions that we want to ask the other then take turns picking them out of the pile. This is a very good list though, I'll have to do it again

    Eh, this list is ok but I already know almost all of this stuff about my hub. I also don't really like the religious ones as we are in no way religious. It's a nice idea for couples who need to reconnect though.

    Did you just meet your husband? I read these questions out to my wife, and we laughed our butts off.

    We did think, however, that if you would like to reduce courtship to a job interview, this would be a great start.

    If you don't have children YET? Some couples are OK with not having children at all.

    I just read these to my husband and we cracked up. We genuinely know all this stuff about each other already because we talk to one another all the time. I always figured this was the type of conversation that is normal for a relationship. I guess if you needed time to reconnect or are just getting to know one another this would be good, but I don't know if I'd call it fun...at least not our type of fun.

    I think this sounds like a fun idea, whether you know all of the answers about your husband or not it's still fun to talk about. Like what attracted you to each other, I know what it was that attracted my husband to me and vice versa, but it's always fun to bring it up and hear it again. This seems like a pretty fun way to do it, although my husband might think it's silly it's worth a try!! Thanks!!☺
