All relationships need regular attention and enrichment. The Shared Values LIMRI addresses the most significant areas that influence the quality of a relationship.

You will be bringing a valuable resource and gift into your relationship by choosing the Shared Values LIMRI. Many couples struggle in their relationships due to unspoken “non-negotiable” values. A non-negotiable value includes things like: I will never have alcohol in my home, I will never acquire debt, or I will never have a relative live with us.
These types of non-negotiable values are not always motivated by self-centered behaviors. Many of these non-negotiable stances are often formed by circumstances in a person’s family of origin that were negatively influenced by alcohol, debt or a relative living in their home.
The shared values inventory will help couples identifies some of these unspoken values and discover ways of developing shared values that are not motivated by unhealthy behaviors or circumstances from someone’s past. A couple that can identify these types of non-negotiable values will be able to guard their relationships from controlling behaviors.
The good news is not all non-negotiable values are unhealthy. Couples must discuss what their values are and how they can honor and support each other’s values.
