One of the things Paul and I have noticed as we talk to couples is the total busyness of everyone and the lack of time couples make for each other.
From my perspective it’s about being aware of your values/goals and learning to say no to most activities outside of that. If you want to have time with your spouse (and you have to spend time together to have a relationship), then you have to guard some time just for him.
I know, I know. Easier said than done, but if you don’t do it, then there’s the huge possibility of drift in your relationship. If you want to build a strong marriage, examine your time use and be intentional about making time for each other.
Even if it’s just 15 minutes in the evening, a once a week coffee date, or a once a month date. These things keep you connected and on the same page.
Where can you make time for your man and what do you need to say no to to make that happen?
All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. J.R.R. Tolkien
