When I had my youngest son, the maternal and child health nurse said to me, “Your baby is the most important person in your life now. But always make time for your husband. Give time for him at all times. You need to remain as best friends for life. Because at the end of it all, when your kids are all grown up and have their own family, it would be only you and your husband again. So you have to remain best friends. Make time for each other no matter how hectic your family life is. Go out for dinner, for coffee, for movies, for a walk or just shut your door and enjoy talking to each other. It is the time together that is important.” It is a good advice, isn’t it?
I learned that spending time with your partner makes a big difference in your relationship. It doesn’t matter if you just have a simple coffee time together. It doesn’t even matter what you talk about. What matters is that you are together. Being recharged as a couple is good for the relationship. Working and taking care of the family will be more enjoyable if you take the time to relax and to rest.
I believe that couples should always make time for each other even if they have children. It is good to have regular bonding times and to remain best friends through the years. Because after all the children grow up and have families of their own, the couple will go back as to when they first started dating.
Take time out of your busyness and focus on your partner. I believe it is a necessity especially in today’s fast-paced life. Invest time and effort in creating memories and experiences than in material things. They matter more and last forever.
It is good for couples to make time for each other to sustain their marriage. Sometimes, some people feel neglected because they feel that their partner does not love them the way they used to, maybe due to busyness at work. So make a priority to schedule time together with your spouse. You will both be renewed and be rewarded with increased happiness and closeness in your relationship.
Here is a reminder for couples:
7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.1 Corinthians 13:7
