Marriage is so exciting at first. It's a new chapter in your life, and that honeymoon phase is pure bliss. However, as the excitement slows down and you two start settling into this new life of yours, you might feel a little disconnect between you and your love. Maybe you two aren't communicating as thoroughly as you used to, or you don't spend as much time together as you once did.
Luckily, there's a way to fix all that. Here's how you can reconnect with your spouse on four different levels:
1. Write your sweetheart a love letter
Tell them what you love about them and what made you fall in love with them in the first place. Talk about what you hope to do together 40 years from now.
2. Pay attention to their good qualities
Let them know what a good husband/wife they are by telling your darling about some of their best characteristics.
2. Share the insights you've gained through your personal study
Talk together about what you've learned and felt while you studied your religious texts, so you can each be a part of each other's spiritual progression.
3. Go to church together
You two can worship together and bond through the experiences you share. Even if you two practice different faiths, this is a great way to experience first-hand something your sweetheart has faith in.
Marriage takes work, but that doesn't mean it can't be enjoyable. True love is worth the effort, and if you try reconnecting with each other by practicing these 12 things, you two will find great joy in your relationship.
