When you’re a parent,especially when you’re the mom, sometimes your marriage can take a back seat. You spend your days making sure you children are taken care of and by the end of the day, you’re wiped. You just want to lay in bed and relax. Sometimes your husband and your marriage, can be forgotten about. So what do we do about that? Well, we need to take action. We need to make it a priority to set time aside every day for our spouse and our marriage. Here are 4 things you can every day to help make a difference in your marriage.
You may be thinking right now “I already talk to my husband.” But I’m talking about actually talking to him. Finding out how is day was, what he struggled with, what you could pray for and share the same with him. This conversation can happen any time during the day. While you’re cooking, having dinner, or after the kids go to sleep. It doesn’t have to be a long drug out conversation. Just a quick way to check-in with your spouse.
Again, this seems like an easy one, but do you do it? Do you find time to pray for your spouse or your marriage? Prayer is such a crucial component in life and when you’re married, prayer is almost the glue to your marriage. Take time throughout your day to pray for your husband and your marriage. Then take it a step further, and pray WITH your husband.
Some nights you may forget, you may be too angry to kiss or it may already be something that you do. But a simple good night kiss, is a great way to end the night. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy or lead anywhere. When you’re ready to turn off the lights and go to sleep, just lean over and give a short & sweet kiss.
I LOVE YOU’s
Why did you get married? Was it because you loved each other? I hope so. So remind yourself and your husband every day, multiple times a day that you love him. Send him a quick text. When you hang up the phone. Before you go bed. Or just because. Remind your husband that you love him by actually saying those three little words.
