Creativity is another key aspect of Teri and my relationship. We create positive ruts, as in a Groundhog Day that continues to evolve. Having been in a marriage for 24 years, I am aware of how ruts can take hold and suck some of the life out of a relationship. For this reason Teri and I continually give our ruts twists from time to time to keep them engaging. Among other things, we've introduced to the relationship such concepts as 4:44, family meetings, gifts for no reason, nightly walks, weekly cards just because, monthly flowers and more. This repertoire continues to evolve. The true test, of course, will be to see where our Groundhog Day is 10 or 20 years from now. Because of our combined creativity, though, and Teri's propensity for improvisation, I have great faith that what we come up with will be special indeed.
