I’m on a mission to help couples thrive during their engagement and learn how to build an emotionally fulfilling marriage. That’s why I’m busy creating a new format Couple Visioning Box™ with couple dates and tools and playful items. It will suit engaged couples, as well as newly married couples who want to cultivate a healthier emotional bond.
Here’s why I believe the Couple Visioning Box™ is so relevant in these times.
The original intent of engagement was to focus on getting to know each other at a deeper level and building the foundation for a lasting relationship.
Sadly, today we live in a society that treats engagement and the lead up to the wedding as though the Bride and Groom are the stars of a fairy tale. It’s become a time of what I call ‘romanticized consumption.’ The result is that there is very little, if any, discussion about what happens after the wedding.
If you are a couple who already lives together, you may think you know everything about each other and that there’s nothing to discuss. But I’m willing to bet that you don’t and there is! There can be many things you have never thought to talk about.
Don’t get blindsided. Talking about things, getting clear on your values, hopes and dreams, doesn’t mean that if you disagree you walk away. It just gives you more information about each other. And it increases your ability to cultivate love and harmony after the wedding day is over. Wouldn’t it be nice to start out on strong footing?
