Is it a deal breaker if your partner doesn’t share the same hobbies and passions?

00:00 / 00:27:07

We are as passionate about our hobbies and sports as we are about our relationships. For some this borders on obsession and infatuation. It may turn out to be as important as religious beliefs or whether or not to vaccinate our children. But what happens if your intimate partner doesn’t feel the same way about your passions and hobbies?

Should they never show up to your events or feel forced to do something that doesn’t interest them just to support you? Do you expect them to be there for most of your shows, games, conferences or performances? It’s an unusually large topic.

This episode explores whether or not expectations and sacrifices can be toxic to your relationship and offers some thoughts on what healthy communication looks like.
