What do couples (married, gf-bf) usually talk about to keep the relationship working?
My boyfriend and I are involved in a lot of projects. As a result, we are constantly juggling them all together and bouncing ideas off one another. For example, we are making a documentary, which of course has lots of directions it can go in, and thus we are constantly discussing it. We are also planning a trip. He is planning on throwing a festival this summer, I'm throwing a huge party in a couple of weeks. He's writing screen plays, I'm writing novels. The beauty of it is that not all of our projects involve the other, so we can just use each other as an outside opinion some times.
Ummmm.... I honestly don't know. I've never had that conversation with my husband. Normally, I just adapt to the situation at hand. If he comes home upset, I'm understanding for an hour or two until he starts feeling better and most of the day is forgotten. If we fight, we both lay low to cool off for possibly a few days, then slowly get on each other's good sides again. We've never really talked about it, just acted.
Wouldn't it difficult not to talk about what's wrong? I mean, if something bothers the other person would it be best to share it to the other person?
Of course. When he comes home and something is bothering him, I hear about it for the next two days. But talking about any problems in the relationship? Doesn't happen, except under extreme stress.
Anything and everything. Open and honest communication is the reason that relationships survive. My husband and I are able to talk about anything regarding the relationship which helps iron out issues instead of letting them fester. Luckily, we also have a ton of common interests and beliefs, so we spend a great deal of time discovering and growing together.
