Improve Your Marriage NOW

By January 3, 2010

Follow me on:

One of the things Bob and I talked about today is how easy it is to let unhealthy behaviors creep into a marriage. With the cold weather, we haven't been walking as much as we usually do. Since we work together, our walks are quality time for us -- no television, no unfinished projects staring at us, no distractions other than the beauty of the beach and ocean.

Here is a list of red flags that could hurt your marriage.

  • Lack of respect and kindness for one another
  • Lack of time with each other
  • Lack of sexual desire for one another
  • Lack of sharing responsibilities
  • Lack of having agreed upon financial goals

Five Things You Can Do:

  • Don't take each other for granted
  • Improve your sex life
  • Agree to do your share of chores
  • Talk about your finances
  • Simplify your lives

I read your article about listening to your gut instinct when thinking about being married again. Well, my gut is not saying very much but I’m still doubting myself. Why is it that a man says he loves you, and then “forgets” to call you. Why is it that he gets upset that I withdraw then? Either he is interested or he isn’t and I have the feeling that he is (and he tells me that he loves me). This sounds very immature, I know, but I don’t know if Im on the roundabout or on the swings.
