"How to save a relationship in 45 minutes" (or just get a good laugh)
About a week ago, I stumbled onto this article (http://familyshare.com/marriage/how-to-save-a-relationship-in-45-minutes) describing research that claims a set of questions can help you and your partner "save your relationship." As a counselor, I can't deny that communication, especially in-depth discussions, can strengthen your bond as a couple. Still, I was skeptical.
I made my husband run through the whole 45-minute set with me. Since we're already close, we didn't learn much new about each other. In fact, we could easily guess the other person's answer to most of the questions.
This seems like a cool exercise for new couples, or more established couples who have drifted apart. If you're already close, it can still be fun, though. By the "ask for advice questions, my husband and I were getting juvenile-silly, but a shared laugh is never time wasted.#love news fopp
