When it comes to relationships a marriage is by far one of the toughest. Making your marriage a priority is really important if you want to beat the 50%.
When you think about making your marriage a priority it doesn’t have to mean weekly date nights out or anything fancy.
It can be as simple as sitting on the couch with your spouse, shutting out distractions and having a real conversation with your spouse. To do this though you will need to make sure your kids aren’t going to be interrupted every five minutes so you can actually focus on your other half.
So how are you making your spouse a priority?

In this episode:
- Dream with your spouse! Sit down and dream out your future together. Make goals that are in line with what you want to achieve.
- Ask about their challenges. Don’t just assume they have it covered. They may need to be reassured or advice.
- Set boundaries. Set boundaries around your time with your spouse, work hours and anything else that you need so you can be dedicated when you should be.
- Put the phone away! Seriously, it’s nothing but a distraction and will leave the other feeling like they aren’t important.
- Pay attention to your spouse and their needs and love languages. Don’t just assume anything.
- Give them physical attention as well. You never know when they might need it.
