The Road Trip
A long road trip with your loved one may sound great, but these trips have the ability to put a strain on even the strongest of relationships. You are stuck in a confined space waiting to get to where you are going. Can you navigate to your destination? What happens if you get lost? What music will you listen to? Little things can build up and really start to become annoying. This is going to test your conflict resolution skills, ability to share quiet, and how tolerant you are of each other.
You don’t have to agree on everything but if your relationship is going to last then you need to have shared values and compatible viewpoints. To complete this relationship test each of you will need to write down 10 questions to ask the other. The questions should be about morality, (do you agree with spanking children if they misbehave?), values (is cheating on your partner once grounds to end the relationship?), and your future (would you live in another state or country?). When you have each written down 10 questions, take turns to as each other a question. It’s important to answer honestly and you will both know each other much better by the end of the test. This will test honesty, adaptability, and your knowledge of your partner.
