The Rule of 3 exercise comes from authors and relationship experts Gay and Katie Hendricks. It’s a series of four questions to be answered with your partner. Each person answers all four questions fully (in a journal), and then you share the answers with each other. This exercise requires a bit of vulnerability. It will ask you to recognize where you could be contributing to some of the conflicts or issues within your relationship.
