# For this assignment, I want you to think through several common areas where individuals bring in expectations to a relationship. I have listed several areas below and there may be others that are not listed.

Specific assignment details:

  • There are six main expectation areas outlined below and under each expectation area is a set of bullet points with additional follow up questions to get you thinking further about your potential expectations for this specific area.
  • You are to select FOUR of these expectation areas to write about (although you can write about all six if you want to).
  • You can write out your expectations in a similar bulleted outline format but you still need to use complete sentences with appropriate college level grammar and mechanics.
  • You do not have to address each follow up bullet point question but you can, and you can discuss other things not listed in the bullet points.

Expectation areas:

1) Personal goals and expectations

  • what are your goals regarding education, career, where you want to live, how many children you want to have, etc?
  • what expectations do you have for your spouse in these areas (education/career)?
