My husband, Eric, and I went to an escape room for a date. We had one hour to solve a series of puzzles and riddles that followed a theme. We had to work together to be successful. So often, he and I have the same goals in life—to raise godly children and have a happy family — but we don’t directly work together to reach them. In order to provide for us, Eric works, and I do the bulk of the child care and housework. As a result, we each play an important role.
Going to the escape room reminded me that we’re a really good team and that our strengths and weaknesses complement each other. The date was fun rather than romantic, but at the end of it, I felt closer to my husband and more grateful to have him as my life partner.
Take the challenge
Go on a date that involves teamwork. Sometime during or after your date, discuss these questions with your spouse:
- When do we work best as a team?
- As we share responsibilities, what do I do that you appreciate the most?
- What task would you like us to work on together more often?
