Marriage Moments will include questions and/or exercises to start conversations. They will provide an an opportunity to know yourself and your partner better. Check in with your LifeMate to see if this is a good time for them to answer these questions. If it is not a convenient time schedule a later time that would work for both of you. When you are the listener, show up with an interested and curious attitude. Be careful not to interrupt. After one of you has answered the questions, turn the tables and give the other partner their chance.
Have fun getting to know each other better!
This is a self-evaluation exercise that we hope you can share with your lover at another time.
- What distracts me most often from being in the moment with my spouse?
- Do I pretend that everything is fine when it isn’t? Is there anything I need to talk to my mate about so that I am not blocking our love flow?
- How do I receive compliments and affirmations from my mate? In what specific ways can I grow into being a gracious receiver of my spouse’s words?
- Do I have an active curiosity about my mate? Have I learned anything about my mate in the last month that caused me to see him/her in a new way?
