Feel like sometimes you struggle to get a straight answer? Want to gain complete clarity over your relationship, where it stands and where your partner’s head is at? Then here’s 100 essential yes or no questions for couples (that you really should ask!) 

Does this sound a little bit scary?! Then don’t worry – it’s really not. It’s simply about having open, honest conversations. Because remember –

Even if you get an answer you don’t like, or which isn’t ideal – that doesn’t mean it’s THE END!

In fact, it’s a good thing if you can recognise any potential issues before they become big issues… This gives you an opportunity to work through them, understand each other better, and improve things.

So go into these couples yes or no questions with the right mindset, and use them to their fullest potential…

How To Use Yes or No Questions For Couples

How to use these yes or no questions for couples now then? Well it’s simple:

  1. Ask these yes or no questions, in the style of a game! Share this blog post with your partner so they’re “in on it” and don’t just feel like you’re randomly asking “silly” questions for no reason. (Say you “stumbled across this article”, if you have to 😉 but remember – it will be good for your relationship!)
  2. You then work your way through the questions, one by one. You will both answer each question, but simply take it in turns, alternating who answers each one first… Or, if you prefer, you can write your yes or no answers down and reveal them at the same time!
  3. Now just because these are yes or no questions, that doesn’t mean you can’t ever discuss the answers in more depth! The only rule is – the answer comes first. You both then decide if you want / need to discuss it any further!

Sounds good? Alright then. Let’s move onto the “juicy stuff!”…

100 Yes or No Questions For Couples (You Really Should Ask!)

So, without further ado, let’s get stuck straight in.

Here’s 100 essential yes or no questions for couples (that you really should ask!)

WARNING: Some of these questions may feel pretty confronting, but it’s good to open the conversation up.

Yes or No Questions For Couples

1) Are you happy in this relationship?

2) Have you ever been happier with someone else? (In a past relationship?)

(This is certainly a tough relationship question, but sometimes it’s the tough ones that you need to ask. And with yes or no questions – at least you finally get a straight answer!)

3) Do I make you feel as loved as you want / need to feel?

4) Do you love me as much as you know that you should?

(If he doesn’t love you anymore, or doesn’t quite feel the same way – now’s his time to say… As hard as that is to do!)

5) Is there anything you think we NEED to change in our relationship, in order for us to last long-term?

6) Are there things that you really WANT to change, in our relationship?

BONUS: If yes – have you tried to work on them with me yet?

7) Do you think you met me at the right time, when you were looking for the right things?

8) Do you trust me?

(This is one of the most-asked yes or no questions for couples, as it’s something that is so commonly dodged! Get straight to the point… “Do you trust me or not?!”)

9) Do you think that you have ever given me a reason NOT to trust you?

(This includes things that I may or may not be aware of, and you should also weigh up whether they were “bad” enough to break trust, plus whether the trust was fully re-built after that.)

Let’s Keep Them Coming…

10) Do you think that I trust you?

11) Do you think that I have ever given you a reason NOT to trust me? 

12) When it comes to being faithful – do you think we share the same standards and values?

13) Can you see a life-long future with me?

14) Do you feel like I’m “the one” for you?

(This is a very big question – if answered honestly – and it’s very different to whether they can simply see a future with you. With this, there can be no “if’s” or “but’s”, so it’s a pretty big deal!)

15) Do you feel like you really know me, and understand me?

16) Do you ever feel misunderstood by me?

17) Would you say we are truly compatible?

18) Do you think we want the same things in life?

19) … And do you think we want these same things, at the same time?!

(This can be broken down into further yes or no relationship questions, based on the specific things that you know you want. For example…)
