The Walking on Eggshells Questionnaire

o    Do you often feel that if you say anything, it will start an argument?

o    Do you often feel that you are afraid to talk about anything meaningful because your spouse will disagree?

o    Do you often argue about money, how the checking account is managed, who manages it, even where it is kept?

o    Do you often get nervous because you are afraid the kids will hear you arguing?

o    Do you often feel that your spouse will not bother to listen to what you have to say, even if it is important to you?

o    Do you often feel you are walking on eggshells, that if you take the wrong step, an explosion will happen in your relationship?

o    Do you find that you can’t even agree on where to dinner?

o    Do you feel that the attraction is gone, that you are headed in different directions, even though you were once on the same page?

o    Do you have little intimacy or no intimate relationship at all? Do you fight about it instead? Do you sleep in different rooms?

o    Do you feel that you cannot communicate effectively with your spouse, that you are disconnecting, keeping more and more inside?

o    Do you get suspicious about the time your spouse spends away from you, even if you feel angry when you are together?

If you checked 4 or more questions, it is time to get help for your relationship. I understand what you are going through. You don’t have to go through this alone.
