Successful parenting is founded on successful relationships between spouses and relatives. We must not neglect our spouse while we focus our attention on grooming our children to become the best they can be. Discuss relationship issues here.
My husband and I set aside 1 day a week for a "us time" away from the kids. Grandparents help to take care of our 2 kids so we can go for a dinner date. Always thankful for our alone time, reminds us why we fell in love in the first place
Alone time with DH is really important to rekindle your love for each other. When you have a family, priorities change esp when you have kids. But having alone time helps a lot! That's what we do as well.
Agreed! Helping each other grow and understanding that each of us as individuals has our own flaws.. i'm glad my DH has been very understanding..
Thanks for the resource.
I've found that one of our favorite habits is the first one listed in the first post...go to bed at the same time.
This allows us to be on a schedule, which lets us get the kids to bed on time and everything runs much smoother with that being done!
It gives us our time alone, and it makes the kids easier to deal with the next day because they got enough sleep.
Whereas if we go off schedule and they go to bed too late they are tired and cranky the next day, making the start of the next day a hurricane....and we all know how those days go!
I may not have the 10 complete suggestions on how to be a happy couple but what can we suggest is to never compare your relationship to other couples. Refrain from posting your moments together on any social media website as this may cause insecurities for both of you. Enjoy little things together, grab a cup of coffee or an ice-cold beer, and talk anything like you used to do before you settle down.
