Check Points!


2007 ARCHIVE

Anyone that spends any amount of time around us finds out that we are a bit OFF and silly together. Because we were best friends before we ever thought of marriage, and still are, every now and then, we act more like brother and sister than husband and wife. Sometimes, the line can get blurry. That means that when we are too playful with one another there are plenty of opportunities for offences and hurt feelings.

One way we have sought to remain friends, as well as, keep our marriage relationship intimate is to periodically have ‘Check Points’. This is when we share offences that have occurred and seek to reconcile our differences. These ‘Check Points’ happen as often and sporadically as necessary to keep us harmoniously connected. They are tough encounters, especially when we each believe that our behavior is acceptable. For the good of our relationship, however, and respect for the other’s concerns, we adjust and try to accommodate the other person.

‘Check Points’ don’t only apply to marriage. We believe they are necessary for any relationship where the people involved are continually growing. Every now and then, it’s important to regroup. To find out where each person is in the relationship and how their dreams, aspirations and expectations are changing.

Make time for ‘Check Points’ in your relatonships. See if there are any adjustments that need to be made to assure that you continue to grow together and not apart.
