Relationships are living, fluid, organic things. They are forever moving, changing and evolving with the situations and obstacles that we are faced with in our day to day life. Add job stress, children, chores and bills and it can be come stained, disconnected or in some case diminished. It wasn’t until I met my husband and learned what a real relationship was. It wasn’t about pleasing the person you are with and giving up yourself, your soul and identity, but rather it is a partnership where there is love, respect and understanding, give and take, but most of all communication.
Communication isn’t always easy. It can cause hurt, joy, pain, but it is essential to making a relationship last. For example, it may hurt to tell a loved one that their spending habits are causing you debt, but it is healthier and will lead to a solution rather than remaining quiet and internalizing hurt, angry feelings. As a couple grows and matures, communication can be neglected or taken for granted. Romantic dinners for two become conversations about TO-DO lists and their children’s lives. This Valentine’s Day open up the lines of communication with your significant other in a fun and romantic way with: One Minute Romance for Couples by Grace Fox.
A romance that lasts begins with good communication. By do you sometimes wonder what to talk about? Would you like to go deeper but need some help knowing how to start? Whether you’re just getting to know each other or have been married for decades this pocket-size trove of short, open-ended questions is sure to spark fun and meaningful conversations that will help you connect on a new levels.
With both DH and I working, we use up our best babysitters (aka the Grandparents) very fast! As a result, we don’t want to impose on their days off. When anniversaries, boring Saturday nights or days like Valentine’s come around, we tend to have Romantic dinners in our kitchen after the kids go to bed. We treat ourselves with seafood, a bottle of wine for myself and a beer for Dh and indulge in a little bit of together time. This past weekend, we decided to spice it up and try Grace’s new book. After being together for 15 years and married 10, you would think we know all there is to know about one another, but One Minute Romance for Couples by Grace Fox took us to a deep level of understanding, communication and love. Sure I know his favourite food and favourite colour, but do I know things like “What legacy do you want to leave behind as couple?” or “Recall our wedding day. What was the highlight for you?”. These simple questions began a conversation, laughter and a feeling of love the drew us closer on a new level.
This Valentine’s Day, forget your normal dinner and movie, instead grab a bottle of wine (or beer), a few candles and One Minute Romance for Couples by Grace Fox, and see where communications takes your relationship.
