Even though spirituality is a personal journey, your relationship can be strengthened when you celebrate shared perspectives and respect differences.
Sharing beliefs with each other and discussing your preferences for practicing and expressing spirituality can strengthen this area of your relationship.
Be cautious, though, as spirituality is ever-changing and there may be times when you and your partner are at different points in your understanding and expression of your spiritual journeys.
Your spiritual journey can be a key area for reflection and discussion with your partner.
- How does your relationship honour your spirituality?
- What values and beliefs from your spirituality do you carry into your relationship?
- What spiritual practices or expressions influence your relationship?
- How does spirituality guide your relationship in times of struggle?
- Is spirituality the foundation of your relationship? If yes, discuss how spirituality supports other topic areas in your relationship. If no, discuss what you consider to be the foundation.
- How does this align with your shared values and beliefs?
If you and your partner ever feel overwhelmed by your results or the ensuing discussion, we encourage you to seek out professional support. Call us.
