Spending Enough Time Together?
together is an essential tool in marriage. Like with any tool
though it must be used in order to get the job done.
TO CONSIDER IN EVALUATING IF YOU ARE NOT SPENDING ENOUGH
are not spending any time together.
of both of you think you are not spending enough quality
or both of you need something from or through the other that
is not getting received or met (play/fun time, talk/listen time,
relaxation/cuddling time, etc.). This does not include individual
basic needs which are your individual responsibilities to meet:
need for peace within oneself, need to take care of oneself,
need to be fulfilled, etc. It is unreasonable to expect a basic
need to be met by one's partner. Encouraging and supporting
your partner to meet his/her needs is different than taking
responsibility to meet his/her needs.
of you is 'under-the-weather' or out of balance and needs extra
loving nurturing attention from your partner.
has been some tension between you two which may indicate that
you need more time together.
of both of you feel that you have been growing apart from each
other. Time to talk.
comments are thought or uttered that indicate this that you
need more time together for one of the above reasons or another
just miss each other.
IS THERE ANYTHING
FROM YOUR EXPERIENCE THAT YOU WOULD ADD TO THIS? We'd
love to hear from you!
