The Not-ly Wed Game



We needed a laugh and I needed a blog post. So today, we’re playing the not-ly wed game. It’s like the Newlywed Game but we’re not wed. Get it? Really it’s a “how well do we know each other” game or a “here are some funny answers to some awkward questions” game. Enjoy.

How Well Do We Know Each Other

How long have you been dating?

The Not-ly Weds Game

Correct all around. Yup yup, official for two and a half years.

What movie character would Nadine leave N for?

The Not-ly Weds Game - Fictional Character

Duh, he’s the chosen one. Please note the wall behind us. Sure, for a “movie character” this would be correct, but fictional character, it’d be Dr. Who. I couldn’t resist the wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff.

What is N’s most irritating habit?

The Not-ly Weds Game - N Worst Habit

Oh the throat clearing. You have no idea. On the bright side, I can find him in any store because I can hear him coming from aisles away. I also thought he might say picking at his beard, which is also pretty annoying.

First Kiss…

The Not-ly Weds Game - First Kiss

Our love story is so classy. Moving on.

How many button downs are in N’s closet?

The Not-ly Weds Game - Button Downs

Actual number: 72. 72! And that does not include the ones in the laundry. Out. Of. Control.

Describe Nadine on a bad day. (His comment on this..”is this a trap? this feels like a trap.”)

The Not-ly Weds Game - Nadine on a Bad Day

He’s too respectful to call me bitchy, but we both knew he was thinking it. The word difficult when used like this makes me think of this scene from When Harry Met Sally  (skip to 1:42).

Sally: “I’m difficult.”

Harry: “You’re challenging.”

Sally: “I’m too structured. I’m completely closed off.”

Harry: “But in a good way.”

Favorite movie of all time. Got a little sidetracked there. Back to the important questions…

Who does Archie like better?

The Not-ly Weds Game - Who Does Archie Like Better

Whoever has food is the correct answer. But he does worship N. Why? I’m home way more often! I should be his favorite.

Who is the better driver?

The Not-ly Weds Game - Better Driver

I can’t even begin to tell you how much this is definitely ME. It’s ME. Just trust me on that one.

Name of the other persons best friend.

The Not-ly Weds Game - Bestie

Correct and correct. Impressed that he spelled Kaylin right.

Where are most of your partners clothes from?

The Not-ly Wed Game - Most Clothes

I would have said Target or Goodwill for me but H&M is a solid answer. 10 points to Gryffindor! Kohl’s is definitely to blame for most of the 73 button downs.

Who is the better “catch”?

The Not-ly Weds Game - Better Catch

It’s him. Mushy.

Dedicate a song to the other person.

The Not-ly Weds Game - Song Dedication

If this isn’t a perfect picture of the difference between men and women, then I don’t know what is. But it’s weird that we both picked songs with the word “lucky” in them. Listen to “The Luckiest”. It’s the sweetest song.

This made us laugh. And we really needed that.

YOU MIGHT LIKE:
  • haha!! Awesome! My grandparents’ 50th anniversary party is tomorrow night and I was in charge of the “program”. I am definitely making them play a version of the “newlywed” game.
    For the record, though, if my husband and I got asked who was the better catch, he would write “Rachel” and I would write “me”. We totally agree on that one. 😛

  • This is SO awesome!! I want to try this with my husband sometime. 🙂

  • This is so adorable! You two are too cute.

  • haha this is so cute!! what a great and fun idea.

  • I love this! So sweet and cute. My husband definitely would’ve listed himself as the better catch. Jackass. Also, I wanted to walk down the aisle to The Luckiest. Love that song.

  • The luckiest IS the sweetest song! Too funny you both picked songs with lucky in them though! This is such a fun/cute idea!

  • What an adorable idea! You two (plus Archie makes three) are the cutest. Oh, and The Luckiest is THE sweetest song ever. Love!

  • Derrick and I sometimes play a game like this too! Only we don’t get a laugh out of it, we just get super competitive and argue about what the “real” answers are. (Sometimes, he almost gets me convinced that what I thought my favorite movie was, isn’t actually true.) God help everyone if we were to get on a real game show! I guess that’s why they usually show respectably functional and cute couples like you guys. 😛

  • This was so sweet. Definitely made me giggle and shed a happy tear. You two are adorable.

  • This is a super cute game 🙂 Glad you two were both able to get a good laugh out of it! I can’t believe he owns 72 button downs.. WOW.

  • This is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. gah I just love you and N!

  • You guys are THE cutest – I was smiling all the way through 🙂

  • Doctor Who. <3 We may have to share depending on which Doctor you prefer. 😛

    Also, "The Luckiest" is one of my all time favorite songs. It's beautiful.

  • i LOVE this!! Hilarious!

  • Hahah I love your song picks. Seriously the perfect depiction of the male brain haha

  • hahahah love this! My bf’s parents and their friends (other couples) played this a few weekends ago and I watched. So fun!

  • I LOVE this idea!!!! So cute!!!

  • I LOVE this! I may have to do something similar. I love the looks you give each other, you can see how much love and fun there is between you two.

  • This is so sweet! You too are so cute together..and great idea for a post!

  • oh this is so sweet! the luckiest is one of our favorite songs

  • lol this was awesome!
    great idea 🙂

  • What a fun game to play. The last one is the best. True Men vs. Woman but totally cute they both had Lucky in them.

  • Hahaha, love this! My boyfriend and I actually did it a while back when we were on our Game Show Network kick and loved it.

  • I LOVE this idea!!! So cute. I want to do it!

  • AWWWW how adorable! I love that idea 🙂 You guys are so cute!

  • Well done, guys! We actually played the newlywed game with a few couples and the ones who had known each other the shortest amount of time (us) won, and the couples who had been together the longest completely lost. It was pretty awesome!

  • Super cute idea! I love that Archie got in on some of the fun too!!

  • What a super cute and creative post! I think you and N are so adorable together and this post just reconfirmed how sweet your relationship is. But 72 button downs? That’s more shirts than I have clothes. Also, Monja and I used to live with my (now ex-) boyfriend in Japan and even though my boyfriend was always working, I swear Monja liked him more. What’s the deal!

  • This is completely adorable and hilarious. I love you guys!

  • This definitely made me laugh and it was fun to get to a little more insight into your lives/relationship! Loving your love! xoxo

  • This is way too cute! Love the pictures. I need to do this with my fiance. Great idea for a blog post, I really enjoyed this!

  • This is the cutest post ever! I love it! You two are so cute, love your answers and the candid photos.

  • This was so sweet! Love it!

  • This is so cute!!!

  • This post IS hilarious and I can tell how much fun you two had making it! It would take a lot of convincing to get my boyfriend to do a post like this on the blog!Loved reading it and hope your week is getting better <3

  • This was super cute! Love the wand on your wall 🙂

  • Love this! You guys are so cute together and know each other so well:) I want to try this with my hubby and see how we do:)

  • Elizabeth

    So fun! We danced to “The Luckiest” at our wedding reception! We love Ben Folds!

  • What a fun game, so glad you guys are super compatible!

  • This looked like fun! The Luckiest really is the sweetest song ever.

  • Kym

    This was too funny Nadine! And the “Is this a trap?” line is totally something TJ would say. I’m a little too guilty of asking him questions that are complete set ups lol!!!

  • Lix

    Oh my god, this is adorable. Such cute pictures!

  • This is so cute!

  • Too cute! And funny. Also… 72 button-downs?!?!!?! That’s insane!

  • Such a great idea! I was looking for something like this to do for Valentine’s Day with the hubby.

  • Oh goodness this was awesome! I liked the mushy one 🙂 And I’m totally a better driver than my husband. Those men just don’t get it.

  • 71 IS my favorite number…but wow that’s a crazy number of button downs. At least he dresses nice! Who normally feeds Archie? If N does, that’s why he is favorite 😉

  • This is awesome. Y’all are too cute!!

  • I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS IDEA! You two are so cute and I love reading all the answers you came up with. I hope you don’t mind if I recreate this and do a post of my own!!

  • This was the absolute cutest thing ever! So fun! I may need to do this with my boyfriend, even though we’re not married haha. I love that last answer!

  • This is so cute and a fun way to get to know you!

    (And When Harry Met Sally is one of my very favorite movies, too!)

  • HAHA! Nadine, this is hysterical. The last one has me in complete stitches. Awesome idea!

  • that is so fun!!! i am totally going to do this with my husband! We have been married now for 9 days!!

  • This is so so good! (Clicked through from your twitter today.) Mind if I use your idea over on my blog?? You guys are adorable!

    • I’d love for you to do your own version! If you’d leave a link somewhere to my version, that would be great. Can’t wait to read it.!
