Sharing Life Together

Each of you think about your daily patterns and answer these questions. Then share your answers with each other.

1.  John Gottman in Principles for Making Marriage Work defines a “Love Map” as all of the relevant information about our partner’s life that allows us to be intimately familiar with his or her world. What can I do to better understand my partner’s “Love Map”?

2. What current behaviors are preventing me from sharing in my partner’s life experiences?

3. What am I willing to do with this new understanding that will allow me to share more fully in my partner’s life experiences?
