You fall in love and spend hours with each other. Life speedily appears to be like heaven has manifested on earth. Soon after, you and your companion decide to get married. Then you have children.
Now the two of you do not spend quality time with each other, for the children have become first priority. However, that is not the way a marriage should function.
Put your spouse first
Many couples found pleasure in spending time together before their children came into the world. A man would buy flowers for his girlfriend, and a woman would dress in the best outfit to go on a date with her boyfriend. No one was able to come in between them, except for the children, but this should not be the case.
Rent a movie
Couples who have children must spend time together if they want their relationships to last for a lifetime. If there are no babysitters available, these couples could rent a movie every other night, put the children to bed early, pop some popcorn, and watch a movie together.
Instead of assuming intimacy will occur naturally in the marriage, couples need to be realistic. If both parents work, most likely these parents will be exhausted once they get home.
This is why busy parents have to set up a schedule for when they will have sex. “Sounds a bit unspontaneous –and it is. But it’s often the only practical way to make sure you keep your intimate relationship on your to-do list.”
For the husbands
Don’t forget to buy your wives flowers or other affordable gifts. The same way you pursued your wives before you were married is the same way you must give them attention in the marriage.
For the wives
If you keenly listened to your husbands before marriage, be sure to pay attention to them in marriage. Furthermore, if you took pride in your appearance before the marriage, do your best to look presentable after the marriage.
Clearly, parents need to nurture each other just like they cherish their children. The young ones will eventually grow up, fall in love, and move on with their lives. Then the parents will be left to either continue blossoming in love or to wither to the roots.
Therefore, parents should strengthen their relationship with each other. Children are needy, and yes parents will rush to meet their needs. However, marriages need to be nurtured as well.
