Take a Class Together

How taking classes together as a couple can strengthen your relationship.

By Scott Christian, The Nest

Remember back in high school when you got paired up with a lab partner for science class? Sometimes you got lucky with who you got, sometimes you didn't, but either way you had to learn how to work together. You had to mix each other's strengths and weaknesses in order to get the project done as successfully as possible. Kind of sounds like a relationship, doesn't it?

[post_ads]Most likely you didn't end up living with your lab partner, but it was a great way to figure out how to function as a pair. You learn together, you process together and you ultimately perform together (unless you got the stoner who made you do all the work, in which case, sorry). But what you probably didn't realize at the time was that this method is an amazing way to strengthen a relationship. Which is why you and your spouse or partner should consider taking a class together.

It can be anything, really: art, cooking, rock climbing. The important thing is that it's something you can both learn together. If your partner is a three-­star chef, don't take a cooking class, you'll just end up getting frustrated more than anything. That said, it doesn't matter if it's something you or your partner are a little bit better at. That's where the give ­and ­take of strengths and weaknesses comes into play. Maybe you took a couple of art classes in college and your partner has never touched a brush. What matters is that you're in a class where you can both improve upon your skill set, and where you can help each other pick up any slack.
And most of all, find something where you can have fun. Sometimes the best way to do that is to take a class in something you know you're both terrible at. Maybe you're horrible dancers, so take a salsa class and get ready to have a bunch of funny stories to tell. Really, it's all about connecting with each other in a little microcosm of life: learning, supporting, growing, and, hopefully anyway, laughing. You've found your lab partner for life, may as well take advantage of it to learn some new skills along the way.
