These questions can be tough to answer, but they can also be eye-opening and helpful in getting to the root of your marital problems. If you’re willing to work on your marriage, even though playing games, then these questions can help guide you toward a solution.

By setting up some simple rules, such as taking a drink every time your partner does something that annoys you, you can encourage them to open up about their thoughts and feelings. Not only will this help you to better understand your partner, but it can also be a fun way to spend an evening together. So pull out a bottle of wine and see what secrets your partner has been keeping.
