PLAY THE LOVE AND MARRIAGE GAME
(Not R Rated)
With this program, be sure to have participants in advance. Ask staff members if they would be willing to participate with their spouses for this special game show! You will need three couples and one activity member to host. Below are the questions to ask the couples.
The rules are the same as the Newlywed Game:
Have each couple predict what their final score will be. This information will be used if the game ends in a tie.
Send the wives offstage into the “isolation area”.
Ask the husbands three questions about their wives, Example: "What will your wife say is the movie monster that best describes her mother?") Record the husbands' answers on cue cards and place them in their laps.
Bring the wives back on stage and ask them the same questions, revealing the husbands' answers as the wives give theirs. When a couple's answers match, award them five points.
Take the husbands offstage and ask the wives four questions (three, if time is short), recording their answers on cards.
Bring the husbands back and ask them the same questions; for each match, award the couple 10 points, except for the last question, which is worth 25 points.
Award the couple with the highest score a fun prize. ( Perhaps a bottle of wine)
Three couples, one married for one year or under. One couple married in between 5 and 10 years and another couple married over 25 years.
