Amid the busyness and noise of everyday life, a relationship – and particularly the nurturing of it – can get lost. Routines, responsibilities, and the pressing practical demands of the outside world can plaster our to-do list with a constant barrage of urgent-but-not-that-important tasks.

Meanwhile, our fundamental life priorities wait at the bottom, unaddressed.

 

At the centre of this modern-life maelstrom is two people with a connection that was once strong, but slowly fading. We long for the emotional intimacy we once enjoyed with our partner.

 

How do I reconnect with my partner?

 

Reconnecting is not about making big gestures; it's a set of honest talks. It means peeling away the everyday routines and practicalities to rediscover what makes ’us’.

 

So, let's get straight to it. If you want to bring back that spark, here are 24 questions for couples to reconnect and statements to share with each other. They are designed to uncover what is being left unsaid, explore your shared history, and lead you toward a more connected future.
