TALK ABOUT IT
What were your expectations going into marriage as it related to sex? Conflict? Hobbies? Free Time? Division of household responsibilities? Holidays? Birthdays? Take some time to think about expectations and then share those with each other.
Is there a disappointment you’ve recently experienced that we should talk about as it related to expectations?
Do you have any desires about something that would be good for me to know?
Do you like surprises?
THINK ABOUT IT
What expectations did I have going into marriage?
Am I expecting my spouse to read my mind?
Have I allowed the books I read, the television shows I watch, or the movies I watch to fuel unrealistic expectations?
