Looking for relationship check in questions? This is one of the most important relationship questions lists we have.
When was the last time you checked in with your partner?
We don’t mean to say hello, or ask how their day was in passing. We mean when was the last time that you really checked in?
When was the last time you took some quality time to understand the ins and outs of how your partner is feeling at work? Or at home? Or in your relationship?
If you’re like most couples, it’s probably been a while. Life is busy and we understand that.
But if you want to keep your relationship moving in a forward direction, it’s important that you take the time to communicate your feelings and understand your partner’s feelings.
That’s why we’ve generated a list of check-in questions that you can use with your partner.
To make things simple, we’ll separate them into things that you can ask each day, each week, and each month to improve your relationship, your communication, and your connection to one another.
Let’s get started:
Daily Questions to Ask Your Partner
Daily questions might not be as intense as weekly or monthly questions, but it’s important that you check in with your partner each and every day to find out how they are doing.
Everyday stresses can quickly add up, and if you know that your partner is going through them then you can better be there to support them.
Here is a list of questions that you can ask your partner at the end of each day, either during dinner or before bed.

Weekly Relationship Check In Questions
We don’t always have time at the end of each day to sit down and have a full conversation.
Some couples don’t even see each other every night. That’s okay.
But it’s still important to make time for your relationship.
You should do your best to make time to talk at least once a week. When you do, here are some weekly questions to ask your spouse:
- Is there anything that went really well in our relationship this week?
- Is there anything that went poorly in our relationship this week?
- Is there anything in our relationship you would like to see more of?
- Is there anything in our relationship that is bothering you?

Deep Questions to Ask Your Partner Monthly
It’s important to have regular conversations with your partner to keep the communication flowing and keep the connection alive. That’s what daily and weekly questions are for. But sometimes we need to go even deeper.
Once a month, set aside time for you and your partner to really dive deep into your lives and your relationship. It’s only once you know how each other truly feels that you can grow.
Here are some questions you and your partner should be talking about each month:
- Are you happy in our relationship?
- What can we work on next month to improve our relationship?
- Did we communicate well this month?
- How do we feel about our parenting this month?
- Is there anything we need to work on or change as parents?
- How can we support each other to make the necessary changes?
- Are we happy with the way that we divide our roles and responsibilities?
- How often are we having sex? Are we happy with that?
- How can we make our intimate life even better?
- How is our emotional intimacy? Do we need to work on our friendship?
- Do you consider our relationship to be a “safe place”?
- Are there any wounds in our relationship that we need to work on healing?
- What was your favorite moment this month? How can we make sure we do more of that?
- Do you feel like our relationship is well balanced?
- Do you think we have a healthy relationship?
- Are you happy with the way we have been handling arguments?
- Did we live up to our financial goals last month?
- How can we make sure we live up to our financial goals next month?
- What’s the next step in our relationship?
- What do I do that makes you feel loved?
- What do I do that makes you feel alone?
- What’s it like to be you right now?
- Is there anything you hope never changes about our relationship?
- Do you feel like there’s anything missing in our relationship?
- What goals can we set for ourselves next month?
Taking the time to sit down and answer these questions could be the difference between a failing and thriving relationship.
The key, of course, is to make sure you listen and follow through on any changes that need to be made. If you can do that, we’re confident that your relationship will thrive!
