Commuting can really test a marriage.  This course is for couples, young or old, experienced or newlyweds, in trouble or just looking to learn.  It’s been used around the world, normally at a cost, but we’ve made it available to residents of Durham Region completely free of charge.

The best way to enjoy the course is if your spouse watches or listens to the same content as you, so you can discuss the question when you’re back in one place.

Day 6 - Make Time for Each Other - Planning Marriage Time

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

Plan time together

It doesn't happen automatically. Find the best time for you and book it in, just like you would any other social or business appointment.

Write it on your calendars e.g.; Monday evening, "marriage time" or Wednesday lunchtime, "marriage time." If you are very busy, plan marriage time several months in advance.
