Every relationship has pluses and minuses.
Whether you have been dating for a few months or married for many years, your relationship will evolve over time. When each partner evolves, this requires the relationship to experience a revision as well as reach new heights. This can definitely can be a great thing for growth or it can cause you and your partner to encounter an impasse.
If you are currently experiencing a gridlock, it doesn’t necessarily mean its a bad thing. It means you and your partner will need to either put in the extra effort to form a new alignment or decide if you are truly compatible with each other. And sometimes, partners outgrow each other if they aren’t willing to evolve together. Just like you probably have outgrown old friendships or even past careers. So if you are feeling confused or hesitant about whether you should stay with your partner or go, then asking yourself these relationship questions below will help you gain clarity.
Begin by going through the list of questions on your own and answer each question honestly according to your relationship values and needs. This will help you identify your strengths and weakness and how it applies to your current relationship. We recommend printing the list or writing down the number to each question while placing a T for true or F for false.
