This is definitely the way to see what sort of stuff your significant other is about. And I am not joking in saying that it could surely make or break your relationship.
Moving house is also another hard one.
Who ever thought that marriage/coupledom isn't work has another thing coming to them.
Of course you never know how you or your significant is going to handle any of those situations until you are actually involved in it but it helps if you have taken little test challenges in the earlier years of your relationship.
My mother sent me this link from eHarmony recently which to me nails it on the head. Ok I don't know why my Mother is getting email from eHarmony but haven't asked either LOL
It is titled "6 Situations When the "Real You" Emerges" such as Driving/road trips, getting sick how you deal with it and how your significant other deals with it.
Recently this was on my mind when I unexpectantly spent 5 days in the hospital. My hubbie, who like most hubbies, can get under my skin sometimes.
But in a situation like this he is genius! Perfect, perfect for me!
He stays calm and collected, he does the research for what is wrong and he piles me with love and treats. He gave up sleep for those days to ensure that I slept :D. It is times like these that reminds us why we we chose each other LOL.
Sometimes pressure puts things out of proportion but honestly you may be surprised that you like the shape that it takes when the pressure is off.
have you ever been in a situation that made you think that yup your significant other was a keeper?
