When was the last time you and your spouse had a deep conversation? A deep conversation that did not cut any corners can sometimes be difficult to finish. It’s best that in every relationship that there is room for transparency. Think about how much even a 30-minute, distraction-free, emotional block-busting session once per week can do for your relationship.

You can conduct a truth session with your partner in the comfort of the bed you both share. For real! I want to challenge you to give it just one go and see what comes of it. If you don't like the outcome of the session you never have to do it again. Of course, you already know this. Now, this exercise could be the one thing you need to take your relationship from being on life support to making serious progress.

How can I best support you when you can not find the words to speak?

Emotional triggers hit differently when you start feeling vulnerable from a variety of different situations.
Your partner may feel easily attacked when say something about their behavior as of lately. Maybe your partner tends to get aggressive when you complain or argue about certain emotionally charged topics like sex, finances, or the in-laws. Plus, maybe something could happen on the job that makes them feel inadequate or embarrassed.
It does not matter what the issue could be. There are many ways to make your partner feel loved, cared for, and respected.
Has there been any argument that we have had recently that has left you with mixed feelings?
There is a saying that goes, “Saying no hurts for a moment, but saying yes hurts for months.” Being assertive and direct with our desires can be uncomfortable. However, if we fail to be honest with our partners then low-lying anxiety can spark by not being true to ourselves.
It can be easy to brush off the difficult moments from the past week. It takes strength and dignity to get this across to your partner with good intentions. Keeping the pathway clear to be open and honest with your inner thoughts and feelings is key in any relationship.

How do you feel about our current sex life?
Having sex with your partner has a huge impact on many relationships. Sex is also ranked as the most common topic that couples cite as the most stressful part of their relationships that they don't discuss often. A poor sex life on purpose can lead your relationship towards a nasty break-up.
Have a heart to heart conversation with your partner about their level of satisfaction with your recent sex life. Also ask them if there's anything they would like more of, less of.  
Feel free to even go deeper and ask them about incorporating different sex toys, positions, or edibles that you may be curious about. Have patience with this topic of conversation. This conversation also may be better suited for those who have been in a relationship for a longer period.
When you come in from work is there anything that I can do to make you feel better?
If your partner is out of work, then you can switch this question up. You can ask them instead, “Is there anything I can do to help you along the way of your job search?”
They might want to have a little distance or communication as possible when they come home from work and need time to settle down. Or they may just head off to play their Xbox or PlayStation to get their mind off their day.
Perhaps they may be the type to give you the right amount of physical affection as is their way of warming up to you. Whatever they need, all it takes is one simple question for you to better understand your partner and to go deeper in your relationship.
Are there any ways that you think I can better support you in life?
What’s a meaningful relationship if you are with someone who does not support you? This question will spark something for your partner and even you if you take turns answering it.
Your partner may appreciate you for making him lunch or work setting out his work clothes the night before. Or your partner may want a little bit more encouragement throughout the day in text messages or phone calls.
Whatever the favor is they ask of you; you aren't obligated to comply. Just by asking the question and letting them voice their honest thoughts will help you to both be more engaging in your relationship.
The takeaway
I'm not suggesting that you strive to become co-dependently obsessed with solving all your partner's troubles. Every topic needs to be stressed in a conversation. Pick a choose any of these questions that you believe that you’re partner will be comfortable with answering.
Keep in mind that there are things tend to get swept under the rug in intimate relationships. The questions outlined above give you a lavage that can be used to lift the rug, sweep away the accumulated harden emotions, and continue with great lives as a strongly connected couple.
