When Was the Last Time Your Marriage Had a Physical?
You might make sure to head to the doctor each year like clockwork, but when is the last time your marriage had a physical?
Our society is more health-conscious than ever before. We are inundated with advice, warnings, and advertisements. Our mailboxes and inboxes scream at us—Renew your gym membership today! Schedule your health screening ASAP! …and so much more. We spend a tremendous amount of time concerned with the shape of our bodies, their overall health, and how long they are going to last.
You might be sure to head to the doctor each year for the annual checkup, but when was the last time your marriage had a physical?
Drink another glass of water. Walk an extra mile on the treadmill. Get another hour of sleep each night. We will do endless activities trying to keep up with the health of our bodies, but we often neglect the health of our marriages.
You and your spouse need a place you can go to start setting the groundwork for a healthier relationship right away.
Get Away Together
Taking time away from the daily routine is the first step toward achieving a healthier marriage. Everyone needs to step back and observe the rhythms of their life. A two-and-a-half-day getaway at FamilyLife’s Weekend to Remember is the perfect way for you and your spouse to assess where your marriage is and how you can work on strengthening it together.
Does your marriage have high blood pressure, shooting through the roof with each new argument? Perhaps you need help in bringing it under control and working through the tension with calmness and cooperation. You can relearn how to communicate kindly with one another, openly sharing the details of your daily life in a way that feels intimate rather than confrontational.
Maybe your concern is just the opposite—your relationship has hit a lull and you’re looking for ways to rekindle the spark you had when you were first married.
