Q+A - How Do I Have A Happy Marriage?
By Hitha Palepu
I don’t have one simple answer to this. But I do have two rituals that have helped my husband and I enjoy almost 10 years of marriage - and a lot of life lived in that decade. Fair Play, by Eve Rodsky: https://bit.ly/3aALiIT Kat Cole + Daley Ervin Marriage Check-In: https://bit.ly/39BtAUi The Questions: 1. …The best (thing, event, moment, memory)? 2. …The worst? 3. …One thing I can do differently (more, less, etc.) to be a more effective/better partner for you? We used to ask for only 1 thing, but a few years in, we wanted to get more specific, so we changed it to 1 thing to stop, 1 to start, and 1 to continue. 4. Your biggest worry? 5. Your biggest point of pride/brag? 6. Your greatest gratitude? 7. Optional share: What is the thing that I/we spent money/time on that provides the most value /least value 8. Goals check in - how can we help each other with goals or interests? Pick 1 or 2 & ask for/offer help 9. Progress check - What is one thing I have improved and/or not improved (from our check-ins or stated commitments and goals) 10. What is an area we want to improve or focus on with family?
