This is the time of year when we often make an effort to start anew. Whether with our health, our business, or our relationships, the beginning of a new year reminds us that we humans get a do-over!
When it comes to your marriage or relationship, this is a perfect time to reassess your strengths and weaknesses as a couple, a team. What areas in your relationship need shoring up a bit and what areas are running pretty darn well?
I recommend you formalize this process by setting aside a couple of hours to sit with your mate and look at key areas in your relationship. Use a scale from 1 to 10 to help you get a sense of how well these areas are running. A 10 means an area is running flawlessly and a 1 means the area is not running at all. Here are the nine areas to assess:
- Practical Life (household maintenance)
- Physical Affection (nonsexual touching)
