Making Time for your Spouse
Men and women are a great mix aren’t we? We fall in love and want to be together every possible chance and then later we notice our differing interests take us apart. Being together often takes a compromise.
Here’s some ways I enjoy time with my spouse:
- If he’s doing a project, like working on the boat, I grab a book and just hang out by him.
- He loves the news more than I do, yet, we’ve made it a habit to record it on DVR and watch it together when we both get home. It always stirs up interesting conversation.
- Even if I’m not interested in the sports he prefers, I make it a point to watch the last quarter of a game or the last 20 laps of Nascar. I’m learning to enjoy them too!
- The best way we connect is by praying together regularly. We’re more vulnerable that way and it helps us feel supported by each other throughout the day.
Making my husband a priority and intentionally spending time with him nourishes our marriage. These little, daily actions make a difference. He’s SO worth it!
