Relationship 101: Mission and Marriage
{Monrovia Marriage Therapist}

Welcome to the 8th lesson in Relationship 101: Cultivating Mission in Your Relationship!

Relationship 101 an educational resource I created for my Engagement and Marital Therapy clients. You can learn more about Couples Therapy and schedule your appointment here.

Today we’re talking about cultivating a sense of Mission in your relationship!

Take a moment to ask yourselves:

  • What are we working towards?
  • What values do we share in our relationship?
  • How does our relationship impact the world?


Creating a sense of Mission in marriage provides meaning and direction – which is vitally important to long-term relationships.

Without a Mission, couples may feel disconnected, discouraged, or have difficulty making decisions.

Mission and values are interconnected – a Mission Statement is  simply the commitment to enact a shared value. Why go to the trouble of identifying a Mission in your marriage?

Because a Mission can focus and motivate us!

If I say, “We value hospitality towards my neighbors,” I’ve made a nice, reflective statement. However, if I say, “Our mission in marriage is to show love to our local community,” I’m ready to act!

A particular Mission helps couples to make decisions that line up with their values. How should we spend our money and time? How should we invest in relationships? Think about your Mission!

Here are some tips as you develop your Mission Statement with your partner:

  • Use plural pronouns:  ‘we/us/our’. You’re a team!
  • Include others in your mission! Check out the last blog and vlog on Marriage and Community.
  • Think BIG! Don’t limit your impact!

Enjoy today’s vlog for this week’s Relationship 101 challenge!

What’s the Mission in your relationship? I’d love to know your thoughts in the Comments! Or, as always, feel free to send me an email or schedule a therapy session.

Hope to connect with you soon!

    Oh, boy, do I ever agree! No business has any special right to exist. If they serve the customer (and their suppliers) well, they will thrive. If not, if they fail to adapt to a changing marketplace, that's just the free market system at work.ReplyCancel

    Wie schon oben erwähnt werden die Preise für Photovoltaikanlagen wohl weiter fallen, kein Grund zur Sorge für Phioovoltaik-Neuetnsteiger – es ist noch nicht verloren. Es lassen sich auch mit der neuen Einspeisevergütung für Photovoltaikanlagen noch ausreichend hohe Erträge erzielen.ReplyCancel
