STEP 2: NEW INFORMATION
Offer your spouse new information, that you might not ordinarily have taken the time to share with them.
By the way, the postman left this package at the door today.
I got an e-mail from Bob yesterday that I thought you’d like to know about.
We got a note from Bobby’s school and he’s doing great.
The police finally arrested the serial killer that lives next door.
It’s amazing how just a small piece of new shared information can begin to create a new level of rapport and intimacy between the two of you. When you take the time to share, especially the small things [which are BIG], the intimacy of the communication is actually what brings the two of you closer together. This type of verbal intercourse is what the top 5% of happy and healthy couples do regularly. The “10 Golden Minutes” stays this easy all the way through the process!
