One of the most important things we can do to support lifelong loving relationships is continue to learn about one another. When we start out in relationships we are fascinated. We stay up all night talking. We can’t wait to learn more about each other.
Over time we stop being curious. We start thinking we know everything about our partner. Which is impossible- every one of us grows every single day.
But when we stop being curious and start making assumptions about the people in our lives we start running into problems. We stop letting our spouse or sweetheart surprise us and things get a little blah. It’s not uncommon to end up in a conversation rut in a long term partnership.
