The more you and your spouse can see into each other and discover the uniqueness of each other, the more you will experience intimacy with each other.
This week, I’d like to help you get a peek into each other AND have fun doing it.
Do you remember those provoking essay questions on your college admission applications? I remember answering questions like: If you could interview one person from any time in history, who would it be and what would you ask them?
I went to an Ivy League school and you can bet that the college admissions people knew what they’re doing when they asked their essay questions. They wanted to find out what kind of person was behind those SAT scores and that GPA. And answers to questions like the one above do reveal what’s unique about each of us.
Now I know you and your spouse are not applying for college or for matrimony, but asking AND answering at least one of the questions below this week will reveal to you and your spouse the uniqueness of each other.
Here are some questions to choose from. Your assignment this week is twofold:
1. Ask your spouse one of the questions from the list below.
2. Share with your spouse your answer to one of the questions below.
