You know something. Marriage is tough. It is so easy to get caught up in the busyness of life, raising two kids. By the time we go to bed, we are done don’t want to talk to each other or anything else. Now, I don’t profess to be an expert in marriage and I am the first to admit that it is work, but here are a few tips to make time for each other and to keep the flame going:
Put down the phone! Yes that is hard to do. We have a rule at our house that the phone, tablets, electronics go out of sight when we sit down for dinner. That way we can speak to each other and our kids.
Date night at home! After the kids are in bed, make some time to reconnect. Play a board game, have a picnic in the living room, or even just Nexflix and chill. The point is to do something together without the phone.
Date night out. Once per month, make some time to get out of the house with each other! bonus if you can do it more than 1 time per month
Go to bed at the same time. This is something that an old lady told me to do when I first got married. It gives you time to connect with each other before drifting off to sleep.
Any other ideas?
