Are you in a relationship that isn’t going quite as you imagined? Do you feel frustrated and confused and unsure if your partner is the right person for you? Well do I have the solution for you! This concrete calendar based activity will let you know the answers. What you do is you take a calendar and on every day you’re happy with your relationship you leave the square on the calendar blank. On the days when you have a fight with your partner or you’re unhappy with your partner you put an X. At the end of two or three months take a look at your calendar. If half the squares have X’s on them, it’s time to go. If less than a third of the squares have X’s on them it’s a relationship that’s worth keeping. If between one half and one third of the squares have an X on them you may be able to salvage this relationship but you’ll likely need to see a marriage therapist or a relationship therapist to help with communication and figuring out what’s happening that’s causing the relationship stress and friction.
