Before marriage, romance often seems easy. Without kids, financial pressures and annoying habits, keeping the spark alive feels effortless. But after marriage, spouses often stop dating and take one another for granted.
Ladies, be curious about your husband. Ditch the obligatory “How was your day?” and replace it with unique, thought provoking, open-ended questions.
Our wives want to see that we show interest in who they are, their struggles, their dreams, their friends. But we can’t expect them to pour out their heart without our participation.
You might feel a little guilty at the thought of taking a kid-free adventure together, but trust us–it’s healthy for your marriage, for the two of you as individuals, and for your kids, too!
