Q&A: What can my spouse and I do to bring back the closeness?

Q: I feel like my wife and I are growing a part and are very different. What are some things we can work on to bring back the closeness?

A: Well, let’s face it, we are different. Consequently, if you don’t feed and nurture the relationship, you grow apart. If you want to come together you have to put your oars in the water and start rowing. That means you could do such things as: Read a book together—Read a chapter per week and share with each other one thing you learned about yourself in the chapter—or go to a marriage enrichment class that might be taught at your church. You also might reflect on what you did when you were dating that you both enjoyed. Try it again. It might make a huge difference in your marriage.
