The responsibilities of life have couples questioning how they ever fell in love with their spouse when they never seem to have time to see each other.
It’s easy to get distracted by the kids, career, or other life commitments.
That’s why it’s important to prioritize the needs of your marriage and allow the other factors to fit in where they fall. Here are my suggestions for helping you fall in love with your spouse if you feel the need to rekindle a lost flame.
1 You have to be intentional about being consistent. If you don’t make the time and become intentional about the kind of future your marriage experience will be then there is no hope for you to obtain it.
Set the vision and communicate your desire to be intentionally consistent with the future you both want for the union. At minimum, bi-weekly dates should be the norm. No excuses!
2 Put in the effort. Don’t always let what’s convenient work for your marriage. Conivence is nice, but it’s also lazy and lacks conveying much thought or consideration for the love of your union.
Go the extra mile at least twice a month to keep the passion alive in your relationship. Avoid complacency and getting comfortable to the point you’re taking the blessings you have for granted or as expected.
3 Keep it fun and sexy. Get creative. You want your partner to be hot and ready for you in the bedroom 4 nights a week? How are you going to set the atmosphere to cultivate that? You want your partner to spend more quality time or help out around the house with acts of service?
How can you incorporate fun, team-building synergy instead of nagging or complaining about what’s wrong all the time?
4 Get away from it all. Sometimes you just need a break to step away from the routine of everyday life so you can get a bird’s eye view and re-evaluate if your marriage is even heading in the right direction.
What are the areas that either of you is not happy in or feel needs improvement? How can your team work together to inspire more of the things you do want? Use the time away to enjoy each other, reconnect, and come back stronger!
