In today’s world it can be so hard to find time for each other! When you are dating it seems second nature to schedule dates and when we are newly in love it seems second nature to find a way to spend every possible second with the person we can’t get out of our heads. Does it have to be any different once you’re married? No! It doesn’t! While more and more responsibilities may come into our lives, we are still capable of prioritizing the second most important relationship in our lives. (The first would be your relationship with Jesus.)
Prioritization IS key. If you don’t prioritize your relationship with your spouse, your relationship WILL suffer for it. Sometimes this means making tough cuts, such as changing jobs so your on the same schedule, giving up activities or opportunities so you can spend time together. Saying no some events and changing plans so you have some time for just the two of you. But other times you might HAVE to work opposite shifts. You may have a super busy month and feel like you got no one-on-one time together. What do you do then?
