The marriage rut.
The honeymoon phase has ended…it may have ended years ago for you or you’ve just started to see the change, either way that beautiful exciting time in your life has come and gone. Your now spending your time with each other in less exciting ways. The day has ended and your spending your night sitting by your husband watching television while he scrolls through his phone. Does this sound familiar to you? It does to me. Now we all know that the love is still there, in fact it may be even stronger than ever. Granted it’s not that beautiful romantic fairy tale life we all dreamed it would be when we were just that young girl with the brand new diamond ring on her finger cutting pictures out of wedding magazines.This is real life and real life doesn’t come draped in beautiful pink silk with a rose petal trail where all our wildest dreams come true. Nope, life tends to be more of a cobble stone path with large boulders to climb only intervened with a flower bed every once and a while. This thing called life can be hard. It can wear you out. No wonder once the hype runs down we tend to spend our evenings with blank stares at a screen. What if I were to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way all the time. Yes, you can pull yourself out of the rut that you have found yourself in, it does not have to be a permanent destination for you. Now I’m not saying that you have to call it quits on sitting back and doing nothing now and then. What I’m saying is that your marriage can be more! You can get excited and feel that spark again, and I’ll tell you how.
The golden rule of reconnecting.
Every day we take time out to catch up with the world. We connect with those on social media sites. We check the news to catch up with what’s going on in our country and the world. We catch up with our favorite TV shows. We catch up with the lives of celebrities. We spend multiple hours a day reconnecting with the world around us. Now think are we spending some of that time reconnecting with our husband? I admit I do have a hard time remembering to take time out of my day for that most important person to me. It is hard on such stressful days to remember him, some days you really just don’t want to do anything that takes effort, and that’s understandable. Some days you may be stretched so thin that you just want to avoid talking to others in an attempt to avoid losing your cool. I do this a lot, when my patience is thin it’s easy to think it’s better to just not talk to anyone. How then can you make sure to reconnect with your husbands when life at times gets the better of you? You follow the golden rule. Set aside one day a week for date night. That’s right, it’s time to start having a weekly date night. Now I know what you might be thinking, “I don’t have time for a weekly date!”. I’m here to tell you that you do! Date’s can be creative, they don’t have to last for any certain amount of time, they don’t have to cost money, they don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home. Have young kids and can’t leave the house? Have an at home date. Paid all the bills and have no extra spending money? Have a no cost date. Now you might be thinking “I don’t have time to plan creative dates” or “I’m not creative enough”. Well then you’ve come to the right place.
