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

00:00 / 00:27:07

We are as passionate about our hobbies and activities as we are about our relationships. For some this borders on obsession and infatuation, while for others it’s as important as religious beliefs and whether or not to vaccinate our children. But what happens if your intimate partner doesn’t feel the same way?

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

This episode explores how whether or not expectations and sacrifices can be toxic to your relationship. But to conclude, we’ll also offer some thoughts on what healthy hobby communication looks like.
