with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
Our church is holding a marriage “course” over four consecutive Wednesdays that is about making sure that you make time to connect with your spouse. I went begrudgingly (I find it ironic that we’re so BUSY, yet they expect us to come for two hours per session), but it was a good evening. We watched some video clips, answered questionnaires, then compared the answers. Not surprisingly (to us), our responses were almost identical.
We’re pretty good at communicating, the two of us. We chat throughout the day, we sit down to eat dinner together every night, and once the kids are in bed, we talk some more. Sometimes it’s a few minutes of chatter before we watch some t.v., sometimes we pour a glass of wine and talk about bigger issues, but we connect every day. I know that a lot of people don’t, whether they never made it a habit or have gotten out of the habit, so I think that the course will be helpful to many.
How about you? Are you too busy for your spouse, or are they too busy for you? Do you make time to connect?
