1) Foreplay is a building block of intimacy.
Foreplay starts with a morning snuggle or kiss.— The Couple Project (@kn8ideas) April 1, 2022
And continues all day with actions that say "I'm thinking of you."
2) Have faith in your spouse.
Have faith in your spouse.— The Couple Project (@kn8ideas) March 31, 2022
- Faith they'll have your back.
- Faith they'll fulfill their commitments.
- Faith they'll love you, even on your bad days.
3) Don't stew. Instead help fix it!
If your spouse or children make a mistake, kindly let them know.— The Couple Project (@kn8ideas) March 30, 2022
Work together to fix it.
Don’t let resentment grow.
4) Don't over complicate time spent together.
Dates don't have to be expensive or grandiose.— The Couple Project (@kn8ideas) March 30, 2022
For us, everytime we leave the house together is a date. We hold hands and flirt.
Don't over complicate it. Keep it easy, keep it simple.
5) Remember to say, "I love you".
"I love you" never gets old.— The Couple Project (@kn8ideas) March 29, 2022
I still feel chills when my husband says it to me.
Especially when followed by a kiss.
6) Sacrifice is part of marriage.
Marriage is about sacrifice.— The Couple Project (@kn8ideas) March 25, 2022
If you aren't serving your spouse you're doing it wrong.
7) Communicate, communicate, communicate.
Ladies, please don't give in to this new, odd narrative that communication is not an important part of marriage. Let it be mature, healthy, and discerning. But don't let it be scarce.— HomeMaker Megs 🌺 (@mrsmegato) April 1, 2022
8) Sex should be fun. Make it so!
Sex should certainly be a joy for both parties.— 💫Mrs. Tomasone💫 Pot Stirrer Extraordinaire (@limitlessleila) March 29, 2022
What makes sense to me is that we don’t always want to…until we get started, and then it’s fun, pleasurable, relaxing & healthy!
It’s hard to get to the gym too but we always feel great leaving. 💪
9) Self reflection is a good thing.
One of the things I’ve been realizing lately is that when I see a trait in someone that I don’t like, it’s usually a negative trait of mine that I haven’t confronted yet— Nick | Sacred Marriages | (@SacredMarriages) March 30, 2022
Its not always the case but many times if you spot it, you got it
10) Always pursue your spouse!
Every wife needs a man who will continue to pursue her, even after he has caught her. And every husband deserves a wife who will appreciate his effort and will allow him to catch her ... often.— Trey & Lea's Stronger Marriages (@StrongMarriage5) March 28, 2022
11) Save your best-self for your spouse.
Do you frequently find yourself dropping everything to go help others? Does your spouse often get left behind when they were planning on date night, help with something at home, or just hanging out and spending quality time together? Are you making your marriage a priority?— Amberly//Family Life Educator (@APM_Amberly) April 1, 2022
12) Choose to be awesome!
Fantastic reminder!— Tyler Todt (@tyromper) April 1, 2022
I hope you CHOOSE to have the greatest day of your life today too my friend!
You don’t HAVE TO do anything.
You GET TO do everything!
