Each year the President of the United States gives a State of the Union Address. We should be doing the same thing in our relationship. Do the occasional check in to evaluate the overall health of your relationship. Maybe you have become stagnant in certain area and need to improve in communication, getting on the same page in any number of topics (finances, parenting, sex, in-laws). Maybe you have noticed you are slipping back into your comfort zone and are taking each other for granted. This is a great time to discuss where you are, but most importantly to talk about where you want to be and come up with a plan to get there. Maybe you can take a class on a certain topic, talk to a couples counselor or a marriage mentor. The purpose of this conversation is to make your relationship intentional.
