We went searching for a "Couples Record Book" to bring us closer together, and what we found was an arsenal of questions bound to start a war.
Forget questions about your first date, first kiss, maybe even first "fight..."
These particular pages were littered with questions like:
-"How old is the youngest person you've slept with?"
-"Do you sometimes wish you'd had more time being single?"
-"If you could change one thing about your partner, what would it be and why?"
Maybe I'm simply not "open-minded" enough to have this sort of discussion with my significant other...
Or maybe I just know how to avoid tension, anger, and jealousy.
While this book hoped to promote discussion, all those questions seemed to do were promote discomfort, discontent, and dishonesty.
But is there ever a right time to stop sharing?
Or does skipping that chapter just prove you're not ready for the book of love?
