“A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, and always with the same person.”
All marriages, including mine, have ups and downs. The goal is to make the ups get longer and the downs get shorter.
It should be the goal of any married couple to reconnect on a regular basis, especially if you have children in the home. The greatest gift you can give in your relationship with your spouse is the gift of time. We have lots of roles and relationships, but none on earth is more important than the one with your spouse. Lea and I find ourselves being able to reconnect by going out to dinner without the kids, going for a walk and talking about our day or meeting for a cup of coffee.
When I make time to nurture my relationship with Lea … as the old saying goes, we find ourselves falling in love all over again.
“Enjoy the wife you married as a young man! Lovely as an angel, beautiful as a rose— don’t ever quit taking delight in her body. Never take her love for granted!” Proverbs 5:18-19
