20+ Ideas to Stay Connected With Your Spouse

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

I absolutely LOVE weddings! Pretty sure I’m not the only one. Yes, I know, it has been FIVE years since my own wedding, but weddings still excite me! Everything about them. All the little AND big details!

The dress. The rings. The flowers. The first look. The first kiss. It’s all so enchanting!

When someone books us to do the photography for their wedding I get extremely enthusiastic.

When we drop off the kids, it’s then just the two of us. It’s almost like a date in a way except we have to “work” on this date. But we get to work together on the same team. I help him. He helps me. And for me, it’s quite enjoyable.

Do you and your spouse have something special you can collaborate on? Hobbies, charities, sports, etc that both interest you? The possibilities are endless! But the point is to do them TOGETHER! Have fun and enjoy being married.

I decided to generate a list, because I just love making lists. List is my middle name. If not, then it really should be.
