Kickstart Your Out-Of-Gas Relationship By Valentine's Day

Kickstart Your Out-Of-Gas Relationship By Valentine's Day
A six-week Couples Challenge guaranteed to spark some changes!

ASK NOT WHAT YOUR PARTNER CAN DO FOR YOU, BUT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR PARTNER

Too often both partners are all about, ME, ME, ME. During this week you are forced to step out of your needs and into your partner’s. The happiest couples give without the need to get back.

These gestures needn’t be expensive. For example, you know your partner loves coffee in the morning so you bring it to him in bed. Or he sets the DVR for your favorite program.

At the end of the week each unveils a special Valentine's surprise.

Since this is the final meeting of this adventure, share what this experience has been like for the two of you… and brainstorm how to keep growing as a couple rather than slide back into same old/same old.
