Is this how your house feels right now?
You are all ALWAYS together, but never alone.
Couple time is now family time.
You are glued to your kids and each other, but you also don’t feel like you ever have any time together.
On top of that, you’ve started to question the strength of your relationship with your partner. You feel guilty thinking this, but adding kids into the mix has effectively disconnected you from one another.
All your energy has been eaten up.
You are a mess of fluctuating hormones.
Happy, sad, confused, proud, tired and sometimes….convinced that you are never going to have sex again.
You are mom. He is dad.
You aren’t “us” anymore.
You no longer make plans as a couple.
AND as a working parent, you feel guilty leaving your kid for any kind of “date” night.
Marital intimacy is so important when showing our children a love life that INSPIRES them.
Intimacy isn’t just generated through sex. Showing your partner nonsexual signs of affection can make them feel more loved than ever. Work on adding the following habits to strengthen your relationship and cultivate a healthy intimacy.
👩❤️💋👨Body language – when your partner is trying to tell you something important, make sure the torso of your body is facing them! Look them in the eye and lean towards them to show them you are listening.
👩❤️💋👨Be authentic & vulnerable – avoid shutting down or feeling defensive. Work on not hiding your emotions for fear of getting hurt or rejected.
👩❤️💋👨Find a new activity – when is the last time you did something new WITH your partner? Try a ballroom dance class, rent a pair of jetskis or try a pottery class. On a budget? Bake a cake together or go for a walk in a new part of town.
👩❤️💋👨Physical touch – hold hands, give them a kiss on the forehead, cuddle on the couch, offer to rub their feet or massage their back after a long day at work.
👩❤️💋👨Be present – spend time WITHOUT a screen in front of you. Ditch the phones, laptops and tvs for at least 20 minutes a day and just TALK.
If you are able to set the kids up with an activity for half an hour or send them to a neighbors house for an hour, take that chance to BE INTIMATE with your partner. Whether that is sex or an action from the above list, take the time NOW to work on creating a strong bond with your partner.
