Go down the list and check-mark any area where you think you do not understand your spouse ─ OR where you think your spouse doesn’t understand you. These may be areas where you and your mate have difficulty communicating with each other.

Then choose the one area where you have the strongest feelings and write fully in loving detail, describing your FEELINGS in that one area. Focus on your feelings, not on the issue. If you exhaust your feelings in that area, and still have time, go on to one more area where you have strong feelings.
