Marriage Tune Up

When was the last time you gave your marriage a "tune up?"

You wouldn't let your car go years without checking under the hood, so why not give your marriage the same attention?

Couples need regular times to sit down and clear the air. It's a good time to talk about the decisions you need to make, as well as the ones you've already made. And to make sure you don't have any unfinished business between you.

Ask your spouse if anything is weighing on their heart. Maybe they're worried about the kids or a project at work. They may be feeling lonely and need a little time to cuddle and reconnect.

This is also a good time to compare calendars and do some advanced planning for the future, like scheduling date nights, holidays and weekend getaways.

The point is, don't let your marriage break down for lack of servicing. Regular tune-ups can do wonders to keep you running strong.
