“Communication must be HOT…Honest, Open and Two Way.” —Dan Oswald

Do the two of you have time each week when you can connect with your thoughts and feelings? 

We spent many years of our marriage, probably the first ten years with little to no emotional intimacy.

We could talk about anything while we were dating and then after the ring and the wedding… crickets.

It was easier to avoid confrontation.

It was easier to stuff things inside.

Why share your feeling to deal with deflection, tears and the silent treatment.

Your emotional intimacy has become repetitive as you talk about the kids, groceries and sport schedules.

You now look across the table at your spouse and wonder, what do we have in common?

Why can’t we talk to each other?

Why do we have to get in a fight over everything?

The answer is that there is flat spot on your emotional wheel.

If you have a flat tire on your car, you have to stop and take action. If you keep driving on a flat wheel you will destroy the tire and eventually ruin the alignment.

The same thing is true of your marriage.

If your emotional intimacy is running flat you are throwing the alignment of your marriage out of whack.

It’s time to take action.

In this week’s show Tony and Alisa talk about taking the emotional intimacy in your marriage through honest, open and two way listening to the next level.
