If a relationship is to thrive and keep growing, we must have regular time together.
At the very least, plan to spend 1-2 hours alone together each week; to rekindle romance, to have fun, to talk together about your feelings (e.g., your hopes, fears, worries, excitements.)
We call this marriage time.
Marriage time should have all the connotations of a “date” together.
The benefits of marriage time
- keeps the fun and romance alive in our relationship
- deepens our understanding and appreciation of each other
- ensures we communicate regularly on a meaningful level
