I’m continuing the blog series, “A to Z of a Happy Marriage”. You can check out the rest of the series by clicking here or go to the ‘A to Z Marriage Series’ page.

Most people would say that their marriage is their top priority but it seems when things get really busy with kids, work, extended family and hobbies, your relationship gets put on the back burner. There’s a disconnect between what we are saying is most important and how we are spending our time.

There’s no such thing as being “too busy” you make time for what’s important to you. – Unknown

The Mister and I aren’t some super special snowflake couple; we have to prioritize our marriage just like everyone else. For us, we make time for each other now when we don’t have pressing things like kids as distractions of our time because for us it’s like insurance for a later day; the more time we spend together now the greater our bond will be when distractions like kids have our time.

Here are 5 simple things we do to make time for each other.

1. Regularly schedule date nights.
2. Try something new together.
3. Take time every day (even if it’s only 10 minutes!) to talk about your day.
4. Send an email or text message during the day to let your partner know that you are thinking of him or her.
5. Greet your spouse at the door when they arrive home.

Your spouse is the person that you chose to spend the rest of your life with. Spending time together is quite simple when you make it a priority. Spending simple positive moments together is what really matters in keeping a relationship awesome.

So tell me, do you prioritize your marriage? Why or why not? What do you do to help keep it your top priority?

Next up, needs! Don’t miss it on December 24th!
