With a substantial percentage of marriages ending in divorce, entrepreneur Zainab Osazin devised a clever solution: a simple yet effective relationship card game to encourage committed couples to tackle the tough topics before embarking on the next stage in their relationships. Launched Oct. 1, 2021, A Game For Couples consists of 108 playing cards with questions covering numerous topics that help couples discuss their beliefs, lifestyles, values, and expectations. This unique, necessary couples questions game is now available for sale online.

“Although I want to believe that ‘love conquers all,’ it’s simply a half-truth,” said Osazin. “Love is just one of the many factors that lead to a healthy and stable long-lasting relationship. Making a major life decision with someone just because you love them is like picking up a dangerous habit because you love how it makes you feel. We hope that A Game For Couples can be one of many tools people use to start having the important conversations that determine relationship success.”

A Game For Couples includes five topic categories: finances, health, family, intimacy & relationships, and ethics & values. Questions encourage couples to discuss their personal beliefs on monogamy, approach to joint or separate bank accounts, positions on cultural or societal issues, and much more. The game can be completed in one sitting or over several days, weeks, or months. Its intended audience includes serious couples who are considering making major life decisions together.

Osazin conceptualized A Game For Couples during a winter vacation in Ghana when her seven-year-old sister asked why she hadn’t married her boyfriend yet. Upon self-reflection, Osazin realized that she—like many people—was apprehensive about asking the hard questions that would determine if she and her boyfriend were aligned on important issues. Wondering why couples weren’t more transparent with each other, Osazin decided that there had to be an easier way to tackle these questions. A few months later, she created A Game For Couples.
