Make Time for Your Significant Other

*Disclaimer: this is just my opinion. Follow my advice at your own risk. πŸ˜‰

My very 1st blog post ever on “Miriam Knows…”was Keys to a Successful Relationship/Marriage.πŸ’‘ I want to elaborate on one very important bullet point on that post: “Have a date night every now and then.” The reason I think this statement is important is because a lot of times we get busy with life, work, school, the kids, etc. and our significant other falls into the background. I’m sure that’s the last thing anyone wants.

In order to make a relationship work, you have to put time and work into it. Yes, the bills need to get paid πŸ’΅. Yes, the house needs to be cleaned 🏑. Yes, the kids need help with their homework πŸ“’. At the end of the day, when everything is said and done, you still have to make time for your partner. They may be feeling lonely πŸ˜” or even neglected because life’s events are always getting in the way. Now, I’m no love guru πŸ€“ or anything but here’s a tiny list of things you can do to make it work:

Find Ways to Reconnect

  • What was it that caught your eye about your significant other in the first place? Reminiscing about that with your partner will definitely get the conversation flowing.
  • How about trying to recreate your 1st date? I know my 1st date with my husband was so simple, stress-free,and so much fun. I wouldn’t mind repeating it in the future. Doing something like this will bring back the feelings you had in the beginning of the relationship. What better feeling is there than that?
  • Just talking about your day or future plans right before bed with your spouse will help alleviate some stress and you’re both paying attention to each other. Small talk is healthy in a relationship.

    These are just some of the things that can be done to better your relationship with your partner. There’s so much that can be done, just don’t give up on it until you’ve given it your all. What else would you add to the list?

    2. I’ve been so stressed and tired lately that I’ve been falling asleep every time we try to watch TV together in the evenings. On Monday, though, we met for lunch at our old house (we’re still moving out odds and ends). It was kinda fun to sit in the middle of the dining room floor with no furniture and no distractions and just chat and eat our tacos together!

      1. That sounds so romantic! Looks like a scene from a movie. I’m glad you were able to enjoy it. As I was writing this post, I found that I could make a little time for my husband too. We have an 12 month old baby who for some reason still isn’t sleeping through the night so we’re both always so exhausted. We talked about it and have plans for next week!
