I know first hand that “Happily Ever After” doesn’t exist… being divorced and now remarried there are so many aspects of a relationship that force you to find strength and wisdom you never knew you had…
I understand that marriage is not simple.
I understand that a relationship should be a 2-way mutual effort.
I understand that sacrifice, adapting and compromising is must for us both.
But the understanding OF these things and actually being able to achieve them is not easy…
Every couple passes through difficult stages.
How you face them together and how you overcome them is what makes or breaks a couple…
We all know that COMMUNICATION IS A KEY FACTOR TO A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP.
But, honestly, with the rush and routine of our lives… sometimes at the end of the day when you finally get the kids to bed and have a few minutes to yourself … communicating and starting a discussion about your relationship is the last thing you want to do.
So the comfortable silence as you both watch TV, both checking your social media accounts and just having quiet time becomes the new routine. But also becomes how you both slowly slip farther away from each other…
BREAK THE ROUTINE
Reaching a point where you can just sit with your spouse after a long day and just chill is an amazing thing … but not something that should be done every night for the rest of your lives.
Going out, as difficult logistically as it may be to find someone to baby sit is sometimes difficult … but try to do it.
Even better don’t go out with a big group or another couple all the time … GO OUT ON A DATE WITH YOUR SPOUSE.
Don’t wait for a special occasion just try at least once a month to have a DATE NIGHT.
Go back to how it all started…
And if you can go away for the weekend, just the 2 of you, go for it!!!!! Travel and try something new!
DON’T FEEL GUILTY for leaving the kids with relatives… you are reviving and nurturing a healthy relationship which is the core of your family.
Modern living is hard. Work, bills, stress, family issues can break you apart … go back to the place where you as a couple were strong. To the Emotional place where you chose to be a couple …
Never stop falling in love with your spouse all over again… and again … and again …
GOOD LUCK SUPER MOMS!
