Marriage can be difficult at times. Sometimes it is just the daily toll of activities, stress and other items that cause keeping your marriage healthy to get pushed to the back burner. Other times it is crises that cause your marriage relationship to become strained. It is important to remember to consistently work on your marriage and your family life. It is important to work together in all aspects of your marriage life. There are several different areas that you should work on as a couple.
Spirituality is one area that you can focus on as a couple. Praying together each day is one way that you can strengthen your marriage. The Lord can and will bless you as you strive to do the things that are right. Additionally you can study the scriptures together and attend the temple together. These activities will help you to keep your marriage founded in the gospel. If one spouse has lost interest in attending church, it is important to still respect each other’s spiritual decisions. You may be able to pray together or find another way to connect in this way.
Another important area to work to strengthen each other is in the relationship itself. You should cultivate love and friendship on a regular basis. It is important to really date each other on a regular basis. Additionally take time to flirt and leave thoughtful notes for each other. This can strengthen your desire to stay together. It is important to work on this aspect, because it is an important part of finding happiness in the relationship.
Finally you should share the work of your family life equally. As you work together to raise your family and take care of the household, your relationship will be strengthened. If one spouse carries more of the burden resentment may come into play and it can affect your relationship negatively. Every couple will find the balance that works best for them, but it is best if both are happy with the arrangement.
