I’m doing a 12 Days of Christmas here on the blog. Every day, I plan to share with something that is sure to inspire you.
Today, I want to give you two marriage tips that will help you have a better relationship with your spouse.
1. Kiss Your Spouse Goodbye
I’ve talked about this before, but I’m going to bring it up again, because it is so important. Kiss your husband or wife every time you walk out the door. Even if you going to leave for just a short period of time, kiss them.
There are so many benefits to kissing when you part. For one thing, it helps you to feel connected to them right before they leave.
Investing in non-sexual touching is great for your marriage. When you show this kind of affection towards your spouse, it will give way to other non-sexual touches. If you are in the habit of kissing goodbye, you might find that you hold hands more often or hug one another more.
The last thing that this habit will do, is keep your attitude in check. If you and your spouse have been fighting or had a tense conversation, kissing them really changes things. If you are already in the habit of doing this when it is time to leave, this tension breaking action will happen naturally.
2. Look Up!
My parents always kissed each other hello as well as kissing goodbye. We didn’t adopt that habit in our marriage, but we do acknowledge each other when one comes home. In fact, we acknowledge the other person has entered the room even if we are home together.
It is so important that you let your husband or wife know that their existence means something to you. Simply look up, smile, and say “Hey!”. This is a simple thing that you can do that will really help you in your marriage.
I hope that you will commit to trying these two marriage tips out and see if it makes a difference for you!
