Healthy Relationship Models
Couples can benefit from having a healthy relationship role model in their life together. Think of a couple that demonstrates unconditional love, respect, patience, faithfulness and other qualities that you admire.
If you feel comfortable and this couple is willing to spend some time with you, take the time to ask this couple questions about their relationship skills and strategies. How do they deal with anger and frustration in a respectful way? What advice can they give you about positive communication and healthy sharing? Occasionally a couple may be willing to spend some time mentoring another couple or perhaps discussing a particular relationship book or study together. This is an excellent way to replace harmful or hurtful behaviors learned in our past with new, positive behaviors.
