Jobs, Children and Marriage: 10 Ways to Keep Love Alive

During the early years of marriage, couples focus on building a nest, settling into careers and having children.

It is too easy, after the knot is tied, to focus less on the relationship and more on the job or the children which is why the divorce rate is so high for this time in a couple‘s life.  It is not that spouses love each other less, it is more because they find themselves drawn in other directions and away from each other.

Things can erode before anyone recognizes what happens.  Neither spouse is usually the “bad one”.  The distancing usually just happens as life evolves.

As couples grow apart by failing to nurture the marriage, they open themselves up for one or both to become unhappy and lonely.  Problems don’t get resolved, fun dissipates and opportunities for affairs or enjoying the single life with friends and colleagues can become more interesting than what is happening at home.

Put away techology and focus on each other to protect your relationship.

We have 10 ways to keep the love alive and make your marriage a priority.

1.  Have a technology free-zone.
Cell phones, face book, video games … all are distractions for intimacy and have their own inherent problems.  Designate a period of time each day to put the technology away and enjoy each other and the relationship.

Tip of the Week

Why is it that people get married?

……Because we need a witness to our lives. 

 There are a billion people on the planet.  What does one life really mean?

 But in a marriage, you are promising to care about everything ….

The good things, the bad things, the terrible things … the  mundane  things.

                All of it …

    All of the time … Every day.

 You are saying … “Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. 

Your life will not go unwitnessed … because I will be your witness.”

 From the movie, “Shall We Dance”
