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!
Discuss these questions with your partner. Perhaps it will lead to a more complete understanding of each other’s perspective.
1. Have you ever sought out counseling? Was it a growth producing experience or not? Explain.
2. Do you have fears about going to therapy? If so, please help me understand.
3. When do think that counseling might be useful for us. If we went what would you be looking for in a counselor? Would their training matter to you and if so, why?
