Is Your Marriage Still Fun?
One of the most common complaints I see on my forum about marriages is that sometimes they just aren’t fun anymore. You and your spouse get into such a routine that you forget to just enjoy being with one another.
It doesn’t have to be that way. With a little effort, you can put the fun right back into your marriage.
One of the first things to do is look at how you used to have fun together and why you stopped. In many cases, it’s simply the strain of raising a family. It takes a lot of work, I know, and my husband and I are just as guilty as any other couple of forgetting to have fun together, just the two of us.
You share a lot of great memories, however, and you can do similar things even when you have children and a really tight budget.
A romantic date doesn’t have to cost a bunch of money. Have a picnic on the beach or at a beautiful park. Go for a walk.
Don’t have the money for a babysitter? Make time for each other after the kids are in bed. Turn off the computer! Rent a romantic movie, have a picnic in the backyard or a candlelit dinner. Trade massages. You don’t have to spend a fortune to enjoy one another’s company again.
