Never Too Busy To Build a Lasting Marriage

There is a big project at work and you need to show your boss that you’re ready for that promotion which will help pay the mortgage. A seminar is in town for a business opportunity you’re interested in while a ton of paperwork piles up on your desk.

Your child’s homeroom teacher has called again asking you for a visit. A science project needs to be done, but not before the soccer team comes over while a ton of laundry piles up in the hamper.

By day end, the only thing that you want to do is clean up, get under the covers and sleep – not minding the person on the other side of the bed who’s equally tired as you are.

Sounds familiar? While this may seem normal for your family, continuing like this will wear you and your relationships down, especially with your spouse. This can lead to constant bickering, which can make a house that is simply not a home.

But then you may say, “I can’t help it if I’ve got a lot of work to do. As much as I want to have ‘quality time’ I just don’t have the time for it.”

Not necessarily true.
While you may have a lot to do, there are ways to find time to care for what’s truly important – and that is your relationship with your spouse and your family. Below are some suggestions just to get you started:

- When at work, during a coffee break or in between meetings, call up your husband/wife, just to let them know you’re thinking about them. Or you can tap out a short email or instant message.

- On occasion, ask your spouse what kind of food they would like to have for a change. And when at the grocery, make a slight detour and buy the ingredients for that dish.

- After dinner, even if you’re tired, help with cleaning up. This gives you time for you and your partner to share your day while preventing the notorious dozing off in mid-conversation. Another option is having the kids take care of cleaning up while you and your partner go out for a short walk.

Reinforce the relationship with these small but thoughtful gestures, building on the love that brought you and your partner together in the first place. In spite your busy and hectic schedule, they are never that far from your mind, which shows just how special they are to you.

As this becomes part of how you conduct “everyday” life, you’ll find your relationship with your spouse continues to grow stronger over time.

Sharing is Loving, Loving is sharing - Your Hopes, Fears and Dreams

Talking is one way to share thoughts and feelings between partners.  Research has shown that women actually talk more than men,  in fact about three times more in terms of the number of words.

This fact does not excuse men to from not talk.  It is the men who “clam up” and refuse to talk.  There are also cases where men who do more talking   than women, just as there are cases where it is the women who talk a lot  as well as those women who do not wish to talk a lot.  There is actually no clear cut or fool proof way to judge who should do more of the talking or who should do less.  It is primarily not about gender but about the individual themselves.

Communication is a vital part of any relationship.  Openness and honesty is a key ingredient to maintaining a kind of memorable relationship that is mutually loving and emotionally comfortable.

The following are tips and possible activities one can do to get yourself or your partner to talk his/her heart out, and share voluntarily any fear…

Three Areas Pointing to the End of a Relationship

Every couple longs for eternity. Unfortunately, forever challenges all couples regardless of how they started, what they have survived and the best of intentions. Being able to spot when things are coming off the rails in a relationship will allow everyone to assess what needs to be done to salvage it and if they wish to invest the time.

Area One: Communication

Communication is held up as the best barometer for telling the status of a relationship. Part of this stems from how pervasive an aspect of the whole relationship communication turns out to be. So how can a couple tell if trouble is brewing in the arena of communication?

All Is Quiet: Long, uncomfortable silences charged with tension define the time spent together. This may occur because one of the pair feels no desire to expend the energy to engage in healthy communication.

Swimming in the Shallow End: When discussions happen, the topics remain light or non threatening. Short and unemotional answers replace detailed explanations …
