Communication is a key element of our relationship. We had some problems early on because James really didn’t know how to articulate himself in a healthy and affirming manner to Miel. Now, we meet nearly every Saturday morning to keep things moving forward.
Usually what we do is lounge around in our pjs and drink coffee (yummy!) while we’re talking. Most of the time we discuss finances, but we usually address a whole range of things. For example, a couple of weeks ago, we talked about starting this blog. Also, we’ve chatted about managing our wedding, defined savings goals, reallocated our budgets – pretty much anything that needs discussing.
Sometimes James still doesn’t know how to articulate himself, but at least we DINKS have found a time where we’re both free to keep our communication open.
Here is where we have our meetings (usually its a LOT more messy)!
