Back in January I suggested that you and your bride suggest to each other three things to change or improve during the next year. The three were to include one that was small/easy, one of medium difficulty, and one that would take some real effort.
If you set goals with your bride, this is your nine-month check in. Have you accomplished the goal you choose to work on first? If not, are you getting close? The year is running out!
If you have accomplished what you choose, see if you can do another before the end of the year. If you’ve done two, go for the hat trick (three)!
What about your bride? Do you see any movement, any hint of improvement, on any of the three things you suggested to her? If so, compliment and thank her! If you see no change, and you think she was honestly interested in trying, a nine-month check in for both of you is a good way of reminding each other of the goals so you can each renew your efforts. Start by asking her if she has seen improvement in the things she suggested to you, and follow up by discussing the things you suggested for her..
If you tried this: I’d love to get feedback from you – good, bad, whatever.
