With so many things threatening to wedge themselves between a husband and wife, here are some ideas that may help a couple find opportunities to grow closer together.
1. Wake up togetherThis may not be possible for everyone, but if you sleep-in while your spouse sneaks out the door, try to get up a little earlier and have breakfast together and pack his or her lunch. Don’t say goodbye without a kiss. It’s an excellent way for a couple to start the day. This small act of service will go a long way.
2. When it comes to bedtime, set a routine and stick to it
This is particularly beneficial if you have children. Put the children to bed an hour or two before you go to bed and spend time together as a couple. Play a board game, talk about the day, set goals, dream together. Plan your next vacation, read a book, exercise together or watch your favorite TV show. There are endless possibilities when you make sure to schedule “together time” each day. At the end of the night, try to go to bed at the same time so you can spend a few minutes cuddling before you fall to sleep.
