Is your relationship feeling a little “meh” these days? Is your marriage no longer a happy marriage?
The passionate love you feel at the beginning of a new relationship, often referred to as Eros love, is due to a rush of dopamine and oxytocin experienced when meeting someone new. These hormones and reward brain stimulators make you feel excited and happy to be around your spouse.
But as time goes on and you get used to each other, these feelings lessen.
This is a completely natural part of falling in love, but it may leave some couples feeling like something is missing in their relationship.
Whether finances are weighing you down with stress or you just can’t seem to find that spark you felt when you first met, all couples struggle to connect at some point in their marriage.
The good news is that one slump doesn’t mean the end of your happy married life.
There are many things you can do to bring that spark back into your relationship.
One of those things to start is to have a marriage meeting.
Kelan and I have been able to keep a happy marriage for 6 years now by using a weekly marriage meeting.
Every Sunday after church, we have made a habit to meet at the kitchen table to have our "Marriage Meeting."
We use an agenda we have changed over the years to best suit our needs for discussions.
No phones, no baby, and no distractions are the rules.
We bring up our agenda on the iPad and we begin by restating our vows.
It has really allowed us to grow and strengthen our marriage over the 6 years.
Kelan and I believe family and finances go together. It is important to get on the same page with your significant other and figure your differences out safely.
Don't let the stress of life get in the way of having a happy and healthy marriage!
