Why is it when you fall in love dating comes easy, but once you’re married dating your spouse often takes a back seat to everything else and the relationship goes stale?
Relationships require a full-time commitment from both parties in order to make it successful and that’s why First Things First, (FTF) is an award winning not-for-profit organization dedicated to strengthening families created an online resource which is supported by a broad cross-section of community organizations, groups and individuals.
FTF accomplishes its mission through meaningful media messaging and skill building classes.
• Couples who manage to devote time specifically to one another at least once a week are markedly more likely to enjoy high-quality relationships and lower divorce rates, compared to couples who do not devote as much couple time to one another.
• Only 30% of divorces are due to infidelity, addiction or abuse, 70% of divorces are due to couples feeling disconnected.
Don’t you wish you could go back in time or at least relive some of the sweet moments from early on in your relationship? Hubby and I try to make time for each other every day, even if it’s at the end of the day. We enjoy each others company, affection and closeness— even after 23 years. It’s an amazing feeling and helps re-spark the fire so it doesn’t burn out.
We don’t get out alone much but when we do we still act like young lovers in love. That’s what helps us stay connected, not to mention keep our sanity. haha! Yes, he still opens the door for me when I get in the car or enter a place of business. He also pulls the seat out for me when we go to dinner and helps me with my coat in the cooler months.
We also STILL hold hands! It’s a simple act of love that keeps you connected and feeling young again.
Date your spouse? Why not? Just because you made it official doesn’t mean the romance needs to stop. It’s what brought you two together in the first place and commitment is what keeps it alive.
So what did you think of the video? Sweet, huh? I sure think so!
