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!
Use your listening skills as you listen to your mate’s answers to these questions.
- What aspects of my uniqueness do you value? Be specific.
- What separate activities and friends do you enjoy? How do these benefit your individual life and how then do you see that enriching our connection?
- What gives you the greatest pleasure in your separateness?
