My husband and I got married really young, he was 21 and I was just 18, and it’s one thing i will never regret.
I love my husband very much, but, unfortunately, when you get married so young, there’s bound to be added stresses and problems that you wouldn’t have when you’re older like, money and having a place to live.
Often, with so many stresses in our everyday lives, my husband and I get grumpy and sometimes our marriage gets into a rut, but one thing is always certain, we fight our way out of it. Here are ways you can rekindle your romance and get your relationship out of the dreaded rut.
Get Away – Even though getting away requires some money, sometimes a road trip, a decent hotel and time alone can be the perfect thing to pull you and your spouse out of a rut. I suggest bringing a ton of road trip songs (wedding/date songs work perfectly), talking and staying off the phone as much as possible.
Turn to God – Before my husband and I got married, we went through a marriage counseling thing with the pastor who would be marrying us and his wife. During these sessions, the pastor told us how getting away from God almost destroyed his marriage. Praying to god, reading your bible and asking for his guidance can keep your marriage stronger than ever.
Have a Date Night, Even if it’s With the Kids -My Husband And I are guilty of not going out because we have children, but chances are whether you are going out to Mcdonalds or Chuckie Cheese, sometimes a romance can rekindle by just reminiscing together and enjoying the kids. Often my husband and I will go out late with the children and on the long ride back home, while our kids are asleep, we just talk about anything and everything.
Think Back to the Story of How You Two Met – Think about it, I bet you can’t remember how you met without getting a big smile on your face. Chances are you won’t just be smiling together, but you may start laughing together and forget about how crazy your life is getting — even if its just for a second.
Do Little Things for Each Other – It’s crazy how life is all about the little things; just waking up with each other before work or doing the dishes can make a big impact in each other’s lives.
