Not Spending Enough Time Together?

Spending time together is an essential tool in marriage. Like with any tool though it must be used in order to get the job done.

WHAT TO CONSIDER IN EVALUATING IF YOU ARE NOT SPENDING ENOUGH TIME TOGETHER

  • You are not spending any time together.

  • One of both of you think you are not spending enough quality time together.

  • One 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.

  • One of you is 'under-the-weather' or out of balance and needs extra loving nurturing attention from your partner.

  • There has been some tension between you two which may indicate that you need more time together.

  • One of both of you feel that you have been growing apart from each other. Time to talk.

  • Subtle comments are thought or uttered that indicate this that you need more time together for one of the above reasons or another reason.

  • You just miss each other.




IS THERE ANYTHING FROM YOUR EXPERIENCE THAT YOU WOULD ADD TO THIS? We'd love to hear from you!
