Are your Love Maps up to Date?

Can you remember back to when you and your fiancé first started dating and getting to know each other? Did you ask each other many questions because you truly wanted to learn about their life, and it meant a lot when they knew the smallest thing about you?

It may feel like you know everything there is to know about your fiancé, because you are in the middle of planning your wedding together. But what sometimes happens during the wedding planning process, and even as time goes on, is that people slowly start to change. What you used to like when you were first dating, you may no longer like. Don’t worry, this is totally normal! People naturally change, and as a couple, it’s important to stay up to date with your fiancé/partner.

When couples don’t update each other on their “Love Map,” it is likely for both to end up feeling lost or disconnected. Just think about the last time you had to update your smart phone. You probably don’t because it updated automatically. But if you don’t update your phone, then we would be lost when getting to a new destination or not know if there was a recent road closure. 

Why you should update your “Love Maps”?

  • To feel close and connected to your fiancé
  • It maintains and promotes trust and reliability in your relationship
  • You won’t fall into the trap of feeling “I don’t know who my fiancé is?” Or “If I don’t know this about them, what else am I missing?”
  • Promotes communication and emotional intimacy 

So how can you stay up to date on your “Love Maps”?

Here are some questions for you to ask yourselves and see if you know the right answers. Think of it as the Newlywed game, where you both right down the correct answer for yourself, and then you write down what your think your fiancé would write down for themselves.

If you would like the full version of this activity, simply click here and you will receive this fun activity in your inbox for you both to complete on your next date night in!
