Today is the second day of an Odyssey cruise. We have had two days to listen to our couple tell us their individual stories; where it hurts; what is not working; how they have tried. It usually takes a couple of days to determine what are the problems or stumbling blocks for each couple. Now we need to come up with a path to a better, more robust and happier relationship.
Tomorrow we will deliniate the trouble spots and develop exercises for each. Then we will have our couple practice while we watch and coach. Soon they will be doing these exercises with each other back home. But tomorrow we will be on the boat sailing from Beaufort to New Bern–about an eight hour trip–and they will use this time to learn and practice.
