Building a Partnership for Life

This is a summary of a session Becky and I taught last weekend.

Dennis
Building a Partnership for Life – Faithfulness is much more than physical. Be faithful with your time, with your affection, your thoughts, unconditional love, and faithful in your prayers with your spouse and for your spouse.

Becky
Build a relationship list.
Who is my number one?
Who do I spend the most time with?
Who is my primary emotional confidant?
Who do I text most often?
Who do I call most often?
Who gets my emails?
Who lights up my fantasy life?

Dennis
Build a solid constellation of good, healthy friendships.
I drew a diagram and we identified the kind of friends we need.
Be deliberate about forging friendships with strong couples.
Put yourself in an encouraging place. Places like Woodland where marriage is valued.

Becky
Attend a marriage enrichment retreat annually.
Some couples budget for marriage enrichment every year.
Read good books about marriage. We gave them a list. I’ll attach that later this week.
Encouragement is the key to accountability.

Dennis:
Dream together!
Without a vision marriages perish.
Share your hopes and dreams with one another.
You might be surprised what you learn.
