You might think that you know your partner pretty well, but how sure are you really?
The person you met, whenever that was, has changed!
Every conversation and experience you each have, every programme you watch, everything you read and every course or seminar you attend changes something in you.
As a couple counsellor I often encourage people to set aside one evening a fortnight (at the very least!) to spend quality time together. That means the children (if you have any) are sent to their room with a tray of goodies, or if possible you can arrange a babysitter.
If you're staying in, switch off the TV and doorbell, and put your mobiles on silent and leave them in a different room!
Ask open-ended questions to prevent "yes" and "no" answers
Your own fun couples quiz
Below is a list of fun and punchy relationship quizzes for you.
They all have fun relationship questions to help you have a good old natter and a laugh whilst closely cuddled up on the sofa, out at dinner, or maybe even out on a picnic.
Don't argue about the answers, though - each one of you is entitled to your opinion and you can't change your partner, however vigorously you argue your point!
However, at the same time, you'll form your own judgements about your partner's answers. Are you really compatible, even if you're having fun right now?

As an aside - the questions could also be used to make your own free relationship compatibility test if that's something you'd like to do.

A couples quiz with some more serious questions
Quizzing each other about more serious stuff
Well... the following questions are a little more serious, so decide beforehand whether or not this is the right time to ask them. I wouldn't want you to slip into too serious a conversation if it doesn't suit the occasion!
1. How would you go about redesigning your life by making meaningful changes if you earned half of what you do now?
2. What's your worst fear?
3. What's the most tragic event you've ever witnessed? (Be very careful with this one - if you suspect that your partner is still very affected by something then do time it right and be very gentle).
4. What's the most difficult goodbye you have ever had? (The same applies here as for question 3).
