When the two of you draw farther apart each week or the marriage feels more unfair every day, you can change your experience of it. Here are three quick ways to improve your marriage.
- Do less of whatever makes you angry. If it’s something you can’t get out of, like filing taxes or changing diapers, do less of something else you don’t enjoy, like washing dishes. (Paper plates work just fine when you have important work like improving your marriage.)
- Tell a good listener the story of how you two met, when you fell in love, and how long it took you to say so.
- Plan a wickedly great date night with things you absolutely love to do and your spouse or life partner will go along with.
Don’t let a good marriage slip out of reach! Act right now. Tomorrow may be too late.
