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!
Make a list of everything, absolutely everything that you can think of that must be done, sometimes everyday, sometimes on the weekends, and sometimes just occasionally like every birthday and holiday.
Play on your strengths. Retain control over things that are really important to you. If not washing the darks and the whites together, determines your happiness, don’t let it go. Keep the laundry on your side of the list.
Occasional Tasks: Visits and calls to extended family; buying of gifts and cards; travel management; home projects; car maintenance; volunteer for kid’s school, etc.
Administration Tasks: Bills, healthcare appointments, insurance, etc. education (election and evaluation of schools).
Divide and Conquer!
Choose what you will be responsible for!
