There are times when it seems like most of the conversations my wife, Jennifer, and I have are about logistics. “Can you do carpool on Thursday?” “Can we eat dinner at 5:15 today so we can get to soccer practice on time?” “Can we get someone to fix that flaky electrical outlet?”

Open communication with your partner is very essential for a healthy relationship and this is where most failed relationship lacks. Sometimes, a person gets too comfortable with his partner that he forgets to ask how she truly feels inside.
Great Post.Thank You……….
Very thought provoking. I have a cousin who has a “state of the union” meeting (a weekend getaway) with each other to discuss items just like this. I’ve always thought it was a brilliant idea.
The only things I might add to the end of a few of them are “what are we going to do about it?” That way there is a real road-map of how to work toward something better/different.
Great point Gretchen. It’s good to talk, but talk with no action won’t move you forward.
