One of the most important things you can do for your marriage is to constantly work to cultivate deeper passion, intimacy, and connection with your partner. Relationship assessments are tools you can use to get to know one another better and strengthen your love.
Wondering what assessments can do for your relationship? Take a look at some of the major benefits you and your partner will get from diving deeper into your own personalities, and your dynamic as a couple.
1. Explore how each of you engages in conflict.
Each person has a different fight style, and it’s likely that you and your spouse do, too. That’s why it’s so important to understand how each of you fight and engage in conflict. A relationship assessment can help you unpack the nuances of how you fight, and help you understand one another better.
Getting deeper, objective insight into your fight styles will help you uncover triggers and “hot topics”. It will then help you learn how to navigate one another’s triggers and leverage conflict to strengthen your relationship, rather than break it down. And ultimately, this could lead the two of you to experiencing less conflict and more harmony in your marriage.
2. Reveal how you both relate to money.
Money is the number one point of conflict in most relationships. A relationship assessment can give you a valuable understanding of your relationship with money, and how that works for or against the two of you.
When you have a better understanding of how you both relate to money, you can shake off the financial friction and start creating more shared dreams for the future.
3. Get clarity on your communication styles.
Communication is the key to the best relationships, but failing to understand one another’s communication styles is a fast-track to unresolved conflict. An assessment can help you and your spouse begin having deeper, more meaningful conversations that will lead you to a more profound connection.
4. Reach a deeper understanding of your individual personalities.
Understanding your own personality, as well as your spouse’s, is a critical bit of knowledge everyone needs. When you know yourself and are secure in who you are as a human being, you’re more likely to build healthy relationships.
Likewise, when you and your spouse know one another well, you’re more likely to build a harmonious marriage. Understanding your dynamics as a couple will help you make better decisions, both together and for one another.
5. Deepen your intimacy.
A universal desire among married couples is to cultivate deeper intimacy. Passion, pleasure, and fulfillment are paramount to an incredible marriage, and you want to make those qualities last a lifetime. A relationship assessment can help you to unlock deeper intimacy, which leads to better sex and greater happiness.
