Do you remember when you first met your spouse? Think back about that time and remember how great it felt to talk for hours on the phone, or how having dinner together was a treat just because you were able to spend quality time with them and have great conversation. You enjoyed one another and couldn’t wait to hear about each other’s day, family, and/or dreams. However many years into marriage after having children, a mortgage, and many other life circumstances you can sometimes find yourself not making time to have those great conversations anymore. Your schedules become so busy that you often become ships passing in the night and you may wonder where did the spark go that once had you so connected!

Marriage is a blessing and gift from God but it takes work and it takes being intentional to make our marriage work the way it should!
There are intentional things you can do to make sure you communicate throughout the days and weeks! It may take literally scheduling it in but it is worth it. Here are 5 things you can do to make sure meaningful conversation happens in your marriage!
