SURVEY SAYS...

Came across a survey with three seemingly repetitive questions. On a scale from 1-7, 1 being extremely dissatisfied, 7 being extremely satisfied:

1) How satisfied are you with your marriage/relationship?

2) How satisfied are you with your relationship with your spouse/partner?

3) How satisfied are you with your partner as a spouse/significant other?

The more I think/obsess/ponder those three questions, the more I like them. What do you think?

Each one seems to go a little deeper than the one before. I would add, "How satisfied are you with yourself as a partner?"

Good one, Deb, let's add it! (And I so give myself a 7.)

I had exactly the same thought as Deb. Definitely need to turn if on ourselves.

These questions scare me.

I don't even want to get started.

I love how they twist your perspective just a little with each one.

And to expand on Deb's thought, I think maybe after asking each of the three about your partner, you ask each of them about yourself in turn, going deeper with each one.

Wanda,

There's a book right there! You're truly blessed, but I know you know that!

Go Mama said...

OK...but what happens when the numbers aren't as high as yours or Wanda's?

Hmm. I'll get back to you in a few years!

Hmmm... I like question three best. The others could be answered without much depth, but the 3rd requires some possibly hard honesty. And if you are thinking of how satisfied you are with your other half as a spouse then it begs the question, how happy are you with yourself as a spouse? I like that question even better. :)

is it okay to say 7?
I'm blessed . I am thankful.

and I agree about turning it around.

Been pondering for days now...it really helps to get a different perspective than lumping them all together.

It also helps to realize that even though you may be unsatisfied with one aspect, another one might be terrific.

I'll tell you after a few more months of therapy and a few more pounds of Newman's Own cookies.

Deb's right.

These questions remind me of premarital counseling.

I'm comfortable with my own answers. But I'd be nervous to open my husband's envelope. I can only hope he'd score us (*me) as high as I'd score him.
