HML #005 – Are You a Safe Spouse?


Episode # 5 – Are you a Safe Spouse?

Welcome to Healthy Married Life, a podcast dedicated to learning, growing and maintaining a Healthy Married Life so that you can take your relationship to the next level.

In this episode we want you to ask yourself (and your spouse) Are You a Safe Spouse?

In our last episode (Five Healthy Ways to Plan for the Busy Holiday Season) we discussed making sure that you left breathing room in your schedule to have what we call Couch time.  This is the time where you just sit on the Couch and talk with your spouse.  Ideally it would be something that is spontaneous and not something that is forced.

The subject came up because we had previously found couch time in the day and realized that it had been months since our last chance to have couch time.  During the episode, we asked the question of why we don’t do it more.  What is holding us back?    In trying to answer this question over the course of the past couple weeks, we realized that for some couples, it might be that one or both do not feel “safe” talking to their spouse, so they hesitate to have couch time.

That was part of the reason we decided to ask the following question in this episode:   Are you a Safe Spouse?
