Think back to the days when you were first dating your spouse. You might remember blissful walks along cute little trails or darling picnics in the park. You might think of lovely dinner dates where your hair was perfectly done and you were both 10 pounds lighter than you are now.
Whatever you remember, it probably looks a little different than your life looks now. Now you've got a million things to worry about; maybe you have a few kids and it's possible you use dry shampoo more regularly than actual shampoo.
Amidst all the craziness of life, it can be easy to forget to actually love your spouse. This, however, shouldn't happen. Here are 13 ways to strengthen the beautiful love you share:
If you're not on the same page as your spouse, it's easy to grow distant. Keep talking and listening to each other - you might miss out on some pretty important conversations if you don't.
8. Set a regular date night
Date night is the BEST, so make it a priority! Set aside one day where you can have the whole night to yourselves and not talk about anything but your love for each other. Leave your stressful life behind.
There's nothing that brings two people together like praying for each other. Keeping God a part of your relationship will make it amazing.
10. Throw expectations out the window
Every marriage is so different that you really can't expect anything. You should expect to be loved and appreciated, and you should expect having your basic needs met, but other than that you never know what's going to happen.
