Times change. People change.
But if there’s one thing that shouldn’t change, it’s the love you and your husband have for each other.
How can you prevent your love for your husband from totally changing? How can you prevent your husband’s love for you from totally changing?
Four words: Keep the spark alive.
Here are some ways:
Go on a date every week.
As time passes by, you and your husband would get accustomed to each other’s role in life. But sometimes, as time passes by, you and your husband would get accustomed to each other’s role in life – to the point where both of you somehow forgets about what makes a marriage unique in its own way. So, go on a date every week. Once or twice a week will do, even if you’re just at home with the kids. You see, keeping the spark alive is not a routine. It’s something done with heart, mind, and soul. It’s something done by you, your husband, and the both of you. The key here is connection, as well as just being content with each other – not too accustomed with each other, only content and happy with each other.
Play games like kids.
Keeping the spark alive can also be done by playing games – like when you were kids. Can you remember? How it felt like dancing in the rain? How it felt like chasing each other? I know. It’s something only kids pretty much do. But can you see it? How it makes them free, without hurting each other? How it makes them happy, without compromising each other? That’s what keeps the spark alive – the ability to make things better by just doing things spontaneously, without ever hurting each other or without ever compromising each other. Sure, you can say it will only be a perfect love imperfect relationships kind of marriage after. But you know what? I’m pretty sure you can say it will be a perfect love, imperfect people, and perfect relationships kind of marriage after.
