Summer time and the living is easy!

August 6, 2013

We hope you are able to take advantage of some time off together and in that slower pace, perhaps you have time for a longer  conversation with your partner…..

Start with these questions to get to know your partner a little better, no matter how long you’ve been together:

  1.  What things do you look forward to each day?
  2. What experiences do you look forward to sharing together in the next 2-3 years?
  3. When do you wish you were better at saying “no”?
  4. Are there specific times when you wish you could say no more easily to me?

These questions come from Ellyn Bader and Pete Pearson, long time couples’ therapists and keynote speakers at the 2012 Imago conference in Vancouver.
