Are you and your partner so busy with life that you’ve forgotten how to be a couple? Maybe you’re starting to feel like your marriage is drifting apart? Almost like you’re living separate lives. If you’re longing for that deep meaningful, intimate connection you used to have, it might be time to reconnect with your spouse.
Maybe you’re living together but leading separate lives, and your paths hardly cross anymore. You can’t even tell if your partner likes you anymore. This is where most couples find themselves entering dangerous territory, because the disconnection can become so deep that neither partner is aware of what’s happening, until the relationship is already at risk of falling apart.
According to relationship expert, Dr. Pat Love, there is hope if you are feeling disconnected with your spouse. You and your spouse can feel loving and connected again. You can get back to a place where you’re affectionate with each other, communicating well and feeling in love again. All it takes is knowing how to show up and be present in your marriage.
Being present in your relationship means paying attention to what your partner is feeling and how their day-to-day activities are affecting them. It means snuggling when you’re sitting on the couch, or sharing your innermost thoughts with them. It means being open to your partner and really listening to what they have to say. It means finding commonalities, and activities you enjoy doing together. These are all ways to be more present if you think you’re drifting apart.
You can also redefine the activities you do together, such as cooking a meal you enjoy together, going on a vacation, a night out on the town, or simply enjoying an evening walk together. Find what you can do together to add a positive experience to your relationship. This is critical to reconnecting with a distant spouse.
Stay committed to staying in love, and you’ll be rewarded with a marriage that will stand the test of time and bring joy to your heart, every day.
