Make a “wish list” of 3 things you desire in your relationship with your spouse.
Take turns sharing your “I wish” statements with your partner and describe how
you would feel if your wish came true.
Talk to your spouse about what affection was like in your family growing up (verbal and non-verbal).
Think about how your father and mother may have shown affection differently.
Discuss ways your family could express more affection for one another.
On a scale of 1-10, rate how much affection you feel you have in your marriage right now. Talk about what you would like it to be if you and your spouse could agree on how to gently and patiently bring about change.
Consider discussing your sexual past with your spouse in a way that is open and honest.
Think of something (hobby, sport, recreational activity) you would like to pursue together.
Talk about one of your favorite dates. What was it about that date that made it so memorable? Is this something you could do again?
