Getting to Know You…

Posted on May 2, 2011 by Matt Marooney No Comments


Getting to know you, getting to know all about you.
Getting to like you, getting to hope you like me.
Getting to know you, putting it my way,
But nicely, You are precisely,  My cup of tea.

Getting to know you,
Getting to feel free and easy.
When I am with you,
Getting to know what to say
Haven’t you noticed
Suddenly I’m bright and breezy
Because of all the beautiful and new
Things I’m learning about you
Day by day.

Ah, one of my favorite songs from “The Sound of Music”!

I was thinking this morning about knowing… truly knowing someone you love, and being truly known by them…

It’s one of the greatest longings of every human heart, and ironically, also the thing we resist the most…

Would you say you really know your spouse?  I mean, really, deeply know them?  Do you merely know information about their life, family, etc. or do you truly know WHO they are?  What makes them do, say, or think the way they do? What are their dreams, visions of the future, and deepest hopes?

I’m sure when you were dating your mate (hopefully you still are!), you wanted to know everything you could, and it was fun to find out new things about the person you were falling in love with…

Guess what?  There is more you don’t know about the person you’re “one flesh” with!  They are constantly evolving, thinking, feeling and changing… you can never reach “the end” of a person!

Knowing your spouse, and letting them know you is one of the greatest privileges, and best way to truly strengthen your marriage, protect it from infidelity, build trust, and be more fulfilled and happy!

How do you do this?  Understand their unique personality, and then ask a lot of questions!!

Here are two absolutely essential resources we can’t recommend enough to help you pursue a deeper “knowing” of the one you love!

  3. “1000 Questions for Couples” – By Michael Webb
    I cannot recommend this book enough!! If you go through
    and answer all of these questions with the one you love,
    you will know each other better than 99% of the couples
    on the planet!  I have a copy, and it has been essential
    in my relationship, and has helped us really dig deep
    in understanding each other… This book should be a
    an absolute must for anyone who is dating!!

Using these resources, you will be better equipped to love and be loved, know and be known if you will use them to initiate a deeper pursuit of your loved one’s heart…
