Looking for entertaining hypothetical questions for couples? Funny scenario questions for couples? Or perhaps you want to use relationship hypothetical questions to put your partner “to the test”?! Whatever it is – here’s 101 epic hypothetical questions for couples, in each category, filling you with ideas for your next date night!

Our Guide To Hypothetical Questions For Couples

Now, our hypothetical questions for couples are based specifically around love and relationships.

Some of them are “just for fun”, but some of them can actually be pretty important or insightful… Possibly even verging into the tough relationship questions, you know you need to ask, but don’t know how to! (Eek!)

For this reason, we recommend turning these couples hypothetical questions into a date night question game, or to ask as a series of questions on the nights when you want to pass a little time … But make your partner aware that this is part of a game.

That way, your partner knows WHY you’re asking them! (As opposed to thinking that you’re making up all of these crazy scenarios in your head, at complete random!)

If you’re feeling nervous, and want to make it more light-hearted, turn it into a couples drinking game, even, instead!

I mean, this isn’t going to be one of the most romantic games for couples, but it is entertaining, insightful and fun… So it’s well worth getting stuck into! (Trust me!)

So, What Are Some Good Hypothetical Questions For Couples?

Now, you can think of all the “weird and wonderful” hypothetical questions at complete random… But the best hypothetical questions for couples relate to the two of you, or your relationship.

That’s why hypothetical relationship scenarios are so popular and tied in so closely here too. It makes them relevant and therefore more interesting, you see…

We’re about to run through our favourite hypothetical questions for couples, but you should also use this article to come up with your own too!

You could even use them to become one of the how well do you know me questions, if you’d like to play the ULTIMATE how well do you know me quiz game!

How this works? You create the hypothetical scenarios and GUESS what your partner will answer, based on how well you think you know them.

How about that for a free home date night game idea, then?!

Basically – your options are pretty endless for it. The most important thing is that you’re opening up the conversation and HAVING FUN!

101 (EPIC!) Hypothetical Questions For Couples

So, without further ado, let’s get stuck in, shall we? Here’s 101 hypothetical questions for couples, to get you started…

Relationship Hypothetical Questions

Let’s start it off, with our classic, and most popular, relationship hypothetical questions. 

These are hypothetical relationship scenarios that “test” what your partner would do in a particular situation, that would relate to, or affect, the two of you! 

So we’ve got things like…

1) If you could look into the future and see what happens in our relationship, would you look and find out?!

2) Are there any mistakes you’ve made in our relationship, that you WOULD change if you COULD?! And what do you think would have been different if you hadn’t of made them?!

(Remember, it’s important to not hold onto resentment in a relationship, so using hypothetical questions like these, can help to open up the conversation about it… to start to release it!)

3) If you could stop my face and body from aging, would you go for it? Or would you rather watch me grow old with you?

4) If you had $500 to spend on something special for me, what would you buy?

5) If you had to try to plan my DREAM date (without asking me what I wanted!), what would you do?!

(You may like to do this both with a budget and without a budget! And yes, you can take these ideas and use them as a romantic gesture for your partner in the future, from here!)

6) If we, jointly, won the lottery, do you think we’d argue about what to spend our money on?! What would you want to do with the money and what do you think I’d want to do with it?!

7) If your favourite celebrity confessed his / her love for you, would you dump me to date them? Be honest!

8) If we could feature on one TV show, which TV show would you put us on? And why?

12) If I secretly had a double life / secret identity, do you think you’d be able to find out?

13) What would you do if only ONE of us could cook for the rest of our lives – would you rather it be you or me?!

14) If you had to choose either MARRIAGE or a CAREER, which would you choose?! And why?

(FUN FACT: Studies show more single women value a career over marriage, but how true will this ring for you?!)

15) If we had to have a long distance relationship for 5 years, living in different countries (but then – after that, we can spend the rest of our lives together!), do you think you could do it?!

16) If you could teleport us anywhere in the world (or universe), for an entire day, where would you take me?! Where would we go?! And what would we do in each place?! Similarly…
