How To Love Your Spouse More And Prevent Divorce
Many people file for divorce because they feel as though the love is gone from their marriage. To be fair, the butterflies that you felt when you first met your partner are not meant to last forever. Over time, those feelings fade as you and your partner get comfortable with each other. After a few years, you’re not trying to impress each other anymore. The honeymoon stage is over and things are starting to get boring in your relationship.
That’s just how a relationship cycles. It’s not your fault or your partner’s fault. However, it will take a little more work now to keep the love alive. When issues crop up in your marriage, you have to tackle them head on. Otherwise, the marriage gets stale pretty quickly.
So if you want to fall in love with your spouse all over again, you have to be intentional about it. You don’t have to consider divorce. Instead, try these tips to get the sparks flying again.
Do Something For Your Spouse
You don’t have to do anything over the top. Think of something that they will notice and really appreciate. Pack their lunch for work. Get them tickets to a show they’ve been wanting to see. Cook a special dinner. Doing something unexpected will make them feel closer to you.
Do Your Own Thing
Your life doesn’t have to revolve around your spouse. Pick up a hobby that your spouse has no interest in. Go out to dinner with friends. Spend a weekend with your parents. As the saying goes, absence makes the heart grow fonder. Give yourself space to be your own person. When you come back, your spouse will see you with fresh eyes.
Be Present With Them
This seems like the exact opposite of the previous advice, but the point is when you do spend time with your spouse, truly be with them. Don’t be on your phone or engrossed in a TV show. Turn off the electronics and listen to what they have to say. Have a meaningful conversation with them. It will make you two feel connected.
Plan Date Nights
Even if you two have been married for decades, you still need date nights to spend time alone and reconnect. You should each take turns planning the dates and be open to whatever your spouse suggests. This allows you to do things you each want to do. Plus, you get the opportunity to do something different, which always spices up a relationship.
