The Sound Relationship House (Part 5 of 5)

John and Julie Gottman’s Relationship House

The final step is developing together, developing a world together, and making each other’s dreams come true.

If your partner dreams of owning a Model T Ford, say ‘Yes’ when they want to buy one. If your partner has always wanted to learn Chinese, say ‘yes’ when they want to go to night school with you.

It’s good to have a couples language that’s just for you. “Remember that time when…”(we went on holidays to Canberra, we snorkelled with sharks, we walked 2km in 40 degree Celcius heat) is a wonderful tool to stroke your partners good feelings.

My husband had always wanted a moon watch, and that was my wedding present to him. His first anniversary present to me was a painting that I really loved. We do what we can to make each others dreams come true.
