Key Questions to Rekindle Your Relationship With Your Partner

Looking to find a fun and creative way to enhance your relationship, but don’t know how? As a couples therapist, I recommend trying the Gottman Card Decks, a relationship app from The Gottman Institute.

This free resource can help you and your partner explore your inner worlds, highlight what is meaningful to your relationship, explore intimacy and sex, and help build healthy skills for your relationship.

To get this free resource, all you have to do is download the app onto your smartphone. Once you download and open the app you will see there are 14 card decks to choose from with over a 1,000 questions, statements, or prompts to use. To get a glimpse of what the card decks can look like here are some examples.

Card decks can look like asking open-ended questions such as, “How do you think we could have more fun in our life?”, date questions such as, “If you could eat only five things for the rest of your life, what would they be?”, sex questions such as,“Is it hard for you to ask for what you want when it comes to touch?”, statements that help show appreciation such as, “Thanks for supporting me when I talked about my [fill in the blank]”, and so much more.

I have used this app with clients before and have had the honor and privilege to see the curiosity, connection, and fun both partners receive from it. To download the free app we have attached the link The app is accessible for Apple, Android, and Google users. Also, to read more about the Gottman Institute please visit-
