Marriage Garden

You wouldn’t plant a garden and then sit back and hope it grows. Gardens take time and effort in order to flourish.

The same is true for your marriage. Good relationships need tending in order to grow strong and vibrant. Like a garden, we need to make the effort each day to turn the soil, pull the weeds, and give the roots plenty of water.

That means taking time each day to talk and share with each other—even if it’s just for ten minutes. Ask your spouse about their day and tell them about yours.

It means doing things together. If you don’t have a hobby that both of you enjoy doing, then find one. And carve out regular times from your schedule to enjoy it. Set a regular date night away from the kids, even if it’s just for a quick coffee. It’s a great way to unwind and reconnect.

Don’t let your most precious garden go unattended.
