This simple tip reduces the strain on marriages post kids

Bring the passion back in your life by spending some intimate moments together with your spouse.

Always make time for your spouse. You have to do everything to keep the fire going in your relationship. Even when the family grows bigger, it’s important to reassure your spouse that he/she is important to you. You have to make your husband or wife feel special and loved.

It’s not the quantity of time you spend with your loved one that matters. Rather, it’s the quality time spent and what you do in that time that matters more. You can set aside some special time at least two or three times a week just to talk and explain what is going on in your life, thereby sharing your innermost feelings and emotions. Don’t talk about the kids, the bills, the house or anything else that is a topic of contention between the two of you. Remember - you want to connect, not disconnect with your spouse.

Maybe you can take long walks together or do fun things that will put you in a happy frame of mind and strengthen the bond of love between the two of you. The time you spend with your spouse won’t take a lot of work but the benefits of this would be long lasting. If you don’t do this, you might end up feeling that you are living with a stranger under one roof. So make that effort, and you will soon know that it is well worth it!
