Intellectual intimacy involves creating an environment where each spouse feels safe and free to share their individual opinions without worrying about potential conflicts.
Examples of how you can build intellectual intimacy with your spouse include:
- Engaging in conversations where you and your spouse have differing perspectives and showing mutual respect when differences arise.
- Approaching discussions with a curious perspective, aiming to learn from each other rather than engaging in debates.
- Discussing movies and TV series after watching them together, asking each other questions such as, "What was your favorite and least favorite part?" and "If you were the writer, what would you have done differently?"
