Having a satisfying and thriving marriage requires that a couple intentionally look for time and ways to build and deepen their friendship.
- Commit with your spouse* to take advantage of your free time (you may have to be creative) by planning activities you can do together. Sit down with your calendars and agree on a few fun things to do. Be Intentional!
- Fun activities don’t have to be expensive or time consuming. Mix it up and have some quick, free/inexpensive activities as well as plan ahead for some “getaway” time that may require more time and resources.
