Fair or Foul

Exploring New Avenues

Relationships

Couples often find there is an imbalance in their daily lives, but they seldom know how to deal with it. One of them might overtake the other in many categories, and leveling their playing field can become an issue between them. Rather than trying to best a partner’s skill set, exploring new avenues could be a good way to solve the problem. A couple with no knowledge of a particular subject could take a class together, and they could begin it with the understanding it is not a competition. Helping each other learn the material could be a good way for them to realize they both contribute to their relationship.

History is often an ignored subject, so taking a class on local historical figures might be a good way for a couple to begin sharing their lives on an equal basis. Neither of them might know anything about the local heroes of the past if they just moved into an area, so their lack of knowledge could be an asset. Being able to share information together could be a new way for them to connect, and it could leave the issue of equality far behind them.

Two people often began their relationship by doing things together, so finding a class where neither of them has a particular skill might be a good way to help their relationship bloom again. If they are interested in learning how to make floral bouquets, a class offered by a local shop could get them out of the house and into a new environment.

There are many ways couples can find to compare and argue about their lives, so they need to figure out areas where they can work together for a successful relationship. Building a future together is not about one contributing more than the other, and exploring new avenues where their of them has ever been could be a good way for them to realize it.
