What's On Your To-Do List

What's On Your To-Do List

Buzz, Love

I once read an article, authored by a genius, who’s name I don’t remember, who simply said, married couples need 36 hours alone every six weeks. I know, many people say that’s just impossible. We have kids, jobs, bills, and soccer. However, for those couples who can pull it off, I’m willing to bet their relationships reap amazing benefits. Why? Because they get to experience each other as adults. Because they get time and space to be intimate. Because it’s good for their sex lives. Because they make their commitment to each other a priority.

My mom tends to say, “the proof is in the pudding”. I tend to say actions are the truth. So, if you say your relationship is your priority, but your actions say otherwise, your actions are telling the truth and your priority list is just lip service. If you aren’t living the relationship of your dreams, and you want to, you might want to act as if your partner is your highest priority. If you’re “beloved” isn’t top on your to-do list, (literally and figuratively), you may want to reorganize your time management plan.

Believe me, the investment of time, energy, and even money is worth it. Divorce is devastatingly expensive.

One final note - if you have kids, trust me, they will thank you for getting your priorities straight. Kids thrive in homes with parents who are madly, deeply, wildly in love.
