Me and my gal go to lotsa meetings together. We both enjoy strong recovery...(for me) meetings are no longer a place to air out personal problems.
I go to meetings today strictly for fellowship and to hear the newcomer as well as getting into the Big Book.
That said, there are no awkward "oops" moments...moments where we compromise one another's space. So for us, all meetings are couples' meetings. We sit together and each of us has our own circle of friends as well as common friends. I love hearing her ESH and am proud of how she walks this program in all of her affairs.
We each also attend separate meetings. There is no 'her' program and no 'my' program. She has her life I have mine and we work THE program at times individually and at times together. We are constantly discussing the 12 steps, God and the MIRACLES we encounter within the fellowship.
I, personally am not the type (nor is she) to buddy up with other couples in recovery- I, we just don't see the point. I can just see how in a group setting this could have a negative impact on our relationship.
I take my personal relationship issues to a select few trusted men and my Mother and God.
Long answer, but it's a very important issue.
