"...reflect issues in which the couple have been particularly interested in their lives to date"
"In their lives to date"
I've never really thought about life as "to date". For me, "life" encompasses even time that hasn't happened; which may be the reason why I'm so rigid. But I like 'to date". It allows for, and almost expects change. It assumes that we are a work in progress.
I am a work in progress.
This is what I feel "to date".
