The (No Longer) Newlyweds Game

The (No Longer) Newlyweds Game (2)

We are officially not newlyweds anymore. Is there a cutesy name for 1 year and 1 day of marriage? I suppose it’s just married now…

If you’re of a certain age you may remember the television show The Newlywed Game, where newlywed couples attempted to guess their spouses’ answer to questions. When they guess right, they get points well, we decided to see how well we really know each other after almost 14 years.

All props to The Mister for this! He wanted to play The Newlyweds Game with me, and he won me over by saying, “hey! It could be a blog post!” so here are our answers!

I hope you’ll do this with  your spouse even if you aren’t newlyweds! You don’t have to use our questions, there’s lots of ideas for questions on the internet, so choose some that you think would be more suited for you and your spouse. Let me know in the comments how you did with your spouse!

  1. Too cute and funny! You guys did pretty good! We played a “not so newlywed” game last Valentine’s Day with other couples–married from 24 to 2 years (we’d been married 4 years), and we got the lowest score of all. Part of that was because my husband forgot our wedding anniversary, haha!

  2. I’m pretty confident I know my wife very well but putting it on a test with a scoreboard might just prove it otherwise. Congrats on your anniversary and many more to come. My wife and I are approaching our first year too so maybe we’ll do this test as well. We are still on our ‘honeymoon stage’ after that we won’t be newlyweds anymore.
