Marriage is all about learning to roll with the punches

Marriage is all about learning to roll with the punches. Newlywed couples quickly discover that with their wedding vows comes a lot of compromise and forgiveness. You have to be willing to put in the work to make your relationship successful. If you don’t, it’s destined for failure. When you begin to realize that you and your spouse aren’t as connected as you once were, it’s time to take quick action. The first step in doing that is to understand why couples drift apart and what you must do to change that. If you ignore this and hope that it will get better on its own, you’re risking the future of your marriage.

There are several different reasons why couples drift apart. One of the main reasons is that their relationship changes once children enter the picture. It’s amazingly gratifying to become parents. It enriches your life in ways you never imagined it could. However, unless you continue to nurture the relationship you share with your spouse, emotional distance is going to result. You have to spend quality one-on-one time alone with your partner even after you two become parents. Take advantage of family members who want to baby sit overnight for you and then use that time to reconnect with your spouse. It will not only improve your relationship with one another but it will create a stronger bond for the entire family too.

Conflict is an unfortunate part of many marriages. When two people live together for many years, differences in their personalities and opinions are going to surface. Unless you two work at resolving your disagreements, there will be negative consequences. Learn to negotiate with your spouse so you two can clear the table and get rid of any lingering arguments. You don’t want any resentment in your relationship. That will only cause the two of you to drift farther apart emotionally.

You must also never lose sight of why you married your partner. It’s easy to stop appreciating your spouse when life’s daily tasks take over. Take a few moments each day to tell your spouse how much you love them and need them. Thank them when they help you with things. Overlook those small negative habits they have that get under your skin. Instead, focus on the things you love most about them. If you both do that, the distance you may have been feeling will disappear and you two will be more connected than you’ve ever been before.
