Saturday, my fiance and I had a "date night," which always consists on dinner, a movie and a nightcap at Barnes and Noble for coffee and browsing (and, almost inevitably, buying more books to add to our disorganized and overflowing library).
While we were sipping our drinks, we came across a section with a few wedding books on it, including two little notebooks called "How Well Do You Know Your Bride?" and "How Well Do You Know Your Groom?"
We bought them.
When we got home, we got to work individually filling out our corresponding 100-question "quiz," but decided to wait until the morning to start the scoring process.
The way it works is each question is worth 10 points, but partial credit is allowed. The rules are nonspecific. And my fiance is quite competitive.
For the most part, this was a cute and fun activity, just to give one another an idea of how much you really know about the person you're about to marry in terms of his/her childhood and areas where he/she excels and about their family...you get the picture.
But, as I said, my fiance is competitive. So when I answered a question differently than what he had answered, it was like being in a courtroom. "But this is why you should answer this way...can I get at least 5 points for that?"
In the end, I didn't really care if he got more points (thereby knowing me better than I know him), so I'd usually just let him have whatever points he wanted and continued to remind him that it wasn't a competition.
I imagine I did a lot of eye rolling.
But it was fun and I think we learned a few things about one another.
For $12 we got a few hours' worth of entertainment. Which is cheaper than going to the movies!
