Relationship Minute: Build a Better Friendship First

Are you friends with your partner?

Dr. John Gottman says that long-term romantic committed relationships are rooted in deep friendship. Being friends with your partner is the foundation that supports your ability to make good repairs, have great sex, and stay in a positive perspective.

Building a strong friendship requires taking steps towards connecting with each other. Try new activities together, ask open-ended questions, and listen to each other’s stories. 

You and your partner are like your own team. You’ve got each other’s backs, and your friendship has the power to make your love last a lifetime.  Make time to invest in your friendship today.
