Couple Challenge: Conversation Starter


As a married couple, you are part of a team. A good team can communicate well. They have united goals and work towards a common end. Each person on the team contributes to their fair share of the responsibilities. Team members support one another, just as ligaments support and join together our bodies. They understand and accept the uniqueness of each other. They recognize the skills and strengths each person brings to a team, as well as the weaknesses, and they work together to build up the weaknesses. A good team has a strong leader. A good team knows how to both work and have fun. They know when to get down to business and when they need to rest. Which of these areas shows your marriage is a good team? Which are lacking or not present? What can you do to be a better team?
