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!
1. What did you learn about doing chores in your home growing up?
2. When you each have alone time with your little ones, what do you most enjoy doing with them?
3. Women, ask your husband if there are ways that they feel micromanaged by you when they help at home? Just listen. Try not to get defensive.
4. Men, ask your wife if she feels as if you contribute and help at home? Just listen. Try not to get defensive.
