Like you, I put effort into my relationship with my sweetheart. That’s important when creating a good relationship. And we know a good relationship becomes great(er) with romance.
Recently I learned about a new level of effort one couple puts into their relationship.
My sweetheart talked with a man she met at work. The subject of Romance Alive™ came up. They exchanged ideas on what they do to keep their relationship alive. He shared with her a commitment he and his wife practice to keep their relationship alive.
Every morning for the past several decades, they wake up and spend their first hour of the day sitting in bed, talking with each over their cups of coffee.
Here’s what’s amazing. They start this at 4 a.m.
They get up at 4 a.m. every morning so they can spend the first hour of each day talking with each other.
Sometimes, he shared, the conversation might not be pleasant. They talk anyway.
Sometimes there’s the thrill of starting the day with their best friend.
Don’t start flagellating yourself because you don’t rise before the roosters to spend time with your sweetheart.
- Consider what you might do on a consistent basis to build your relationship even stronger, then
- Invite your sweetheart to join you for this two week adventure.
Maybe it’s just 30 minutes three times a week.
Maybe it’s 15 minutes a day, after the kids are in bed.
The idea is to find time on a regular basis when the two of you get together and talk, cultivating your relationship. It’s another way to move your relationship from good to great. Robert
