I received an email recently from Marriage Today about growing together being a key to a good marriage. I think that the trend of having “date night” can help a couple grow together. Honestly, Michael and I are hermits and don’t do date night nearly as much as we should but we manage.
It takes special attention to keep a couple from growing apart. Just because a couple lives in the same house does not mean that they are growing together and not growing apart.
Shared experiences and goals can help to grow together. It is important to have meaningful conversations and do things together.
There was a time when I was very focused on raising our children and my relationship with Michael was a bit on automatic. I regret that now. I wish we’d have had taken a bit more time for ourselves, as a couple. Thankfully, we have managed to overcome that time of growing apart and started growing together again.
Hop over and read the article on Marriage Today. I hope it will be an encouragement to you and your spouse.
Until next time, God bless,
