It’s amazing how we can be married and still find there is much we don’t know about each other. Some might say it’s because we’ve lost the art of conversation. Others might say it’s because we don’t allow it to continue after we marry —we allow everyday living to separate and distance us instead.
It is important to keep the lines of communication and conversation open so you grow together rather than apart. It creates oneness.
We started this back in March of 2013. We have many more people reading the blog these days, so we thought we explain our intention. Every Friday – we’ll post a question that is designed to spark conversation with your spouse. It might be serious. It might be silly. Use it to start a conversation. Be intentional. Look, find, figure out, MAKE the time to converse and connect with each other in meaningful ways.
Keep in mind that these questions are not meant to cause division between you but rather to help you to better understand and know each other. If the conversation starts to go in a negative direction, stop and start again. If you need to revisit a particular question at another time to bridge your differences, then set a time to do so. But aim to do it in a way that is respectful of each other’s character and feelings.
