You love your spouse and you love to be together, however, there are some things in life that don’t allow you to be together all of the time.  Here are 5 tips to help you become more relationship centered even if you are not together 24/7.  

Indulge in Shared Interests: She may love scrap booking or horseback riding and enjoys every minute of it, while he loves golf and watching football.  It is inevitable that you may not always share the same interests but be interested when your partner shares information about their interests with you.  Also, if there are activities that you like to do together such as working out or going camping, indulge in every minute of those with your partner. Make Your Partner Feel Desirable and Give them “I Love You”s: Making your partner feel desirable lets them know that you love them without saying a word.  Give them hugs and kisses when they least expect it.  Be near to them as much as possible.  These physical interactions show that you trust your partner and you want to be with them. Telling your partner you love them in a variety of ways.  Verbally and physically, you can show your partner that you love them by telling them and touching them. Be Marriage Centered, Not Child Centered:  Put your marriage before your children, but show your children that you love them and care for them.  It is better to have a healthy marriage than one that is stressed out over the children.  Limit children’s activities outside of home if they are going to be causing strains on your relationship.  Give the children options rather than allowing them to do everything. Take kid free vacations and enjoy being together.  Make date night a regular occurrence. Create and Exciting Vision for Your Future Together:  Make dreams together and realize them together. Plan a date and time for that perfect vacation or cruise.  Plan it well in advance and save up for it.  When that time comes you will be glad that you did.  This will give you the feeling of having accomplished something together.  Talk About Sex: Don’t save it for the bedroom, if you have something to say about it say it.  Talking about sex and communicating with each other will insure that you know your partner’s needs and desires. Talking about it casually will make it easier and you will be less apt to be shy about it. Posted by Valerie on Wednesday, September 13th, 2006 at 5:41 pm.
