How well do you know your partner?

One of the more common presenting problems I see when counselling couples, is that they made a commitment to be together, plan their lives and future family together, without ever discussing if they shared common values and beliefs.

It is only when a clash of beliefs occur, such their children’s religious upbringing or even if you both want children, that their lack of knowledge about their partner’s values becomes apparent

Before you commit to someone, shouldn’t you know how they feel about the important things that will be part of your lives together?

Good marriages and partnerships are based on more than just love or lust. They are also based on knowledge and compromise, and to reach compromise, you need to know where your partner stands on the important issues in your life.

Have a look at this short test and if you discover you can’t answer ‘yes’ to most of these questions, you both need to start sharing more information about values, beliefs and family traits and rituals. Enjoy!

Your workshop was great for us and was what we needed to make a fresh start and turn our relationship around.

We'd recommend your workshop to any couple who are in trouble and want to rekindle their love!

Thanks again Carole

Do you still see your partner through ‘rose tinted glasses’?

If the answer is ‘Yes’, then you have a greater chance of staying together.
