Your Relationship Vision and Artificial Intelligence

As a Couples Counsellor I often recommend couples create their relationship vision document. It's a nice exercise. It helps us get intentional. It brings us into our hearts. It helps us dream.


It's a roadmap. What's important to us? What are our values, individually and as a couple? What are we creating together? What is our commitment?


I see it done as a sticky note on the bathroom mirror, an artistic project, or an 18 pages Google document.


I see couples newly in love working on it together, and I see couples who've been together for 25 years, became empty nesters, and now are trying to figure out what does it mean to be in a relationship - that vision is very different from when they first started dating.


It's nice to create one. It's nice to review it yearly. What changed for us? What's important now? What did we learn in the last year, and based on this, what do we want to do differently now? What is a priority? What do we want to commit to this year?


What is something we long for? What are our heart's desires? What do we want to give? What do we want to receive?


It's vulnerable and beautiful to share it with a partner.


It might sounds like something like this:


"We're in this together for the long haul, embracing adventures, growth, laughter, and healing. Our vision is a love that's honest, and true —a journey where we both thrive, individually and together, creating a story that's uniquely ours."


What else could we include in this document? What's important? If you google, you'll get a whole bunch of ideas. I asked ChatGPT. Turned out, it can help! While way too formal for my liking, it's surprisingly thorough and thoughtful. I thought I'd share.
