When a marriage begins to fall apart, it usually begins with neglect. We stop giving our attention to each other. We live our own independent lives and we drift apart. I call this the Fall season of marriage. How do we move from Fall back to Spring? We begin to do the kind of things we did when we first met each other. Meals together, asking questions and listening, as well as sharing positive comments and doing things together; these are the things that lead to a Spring marriage.
Maybe it’s time for you to plan a “date night” and do something fun together. Get your mind off your problems and focus on what you have in common. If you’ve been arguing, call a truce and share a pizza. Don’t continue drifting apart. It’s worth the effort.
