Strenthen your vows with these ideas
Create a dream board
Set goals as husband and wife. Make your dream board as creative as possible. It’s as if you are making a scrapbook. If you want to travel the world as a couple, fill the board with locations you want to see. If you want to have a bigger home, get a picture of a house you both find beautiful. Be ambitious but at the same time realistic of what you can attain as a couple.
As with everything in your marriage, work on this project together. That way, you come up with dreams that excite you both. It doesn’t have to be a ‘board’, in fact, my husband and I created a dream box. Kind of like a piggy bank, we cut a whole in the top of a box and covered it with pictures of our dreams. Then we filled it with money as a way to save towards those goals.
It’s healthy to think about your future as a couple. With a dream board, you and your sweetie will be looking forward to something better.
Plan a monthly unique activity
Throw your usual dating schedule out the window. Once a month it would be nice to plan something completely different. My husband and I like to check out Groupon for ideas. This allows me to save money (and you know I love that) and find activities we may not have thought of before. We’ve gone zip-lining, rock climbing at a gym, and we’ve attended a charity event at our local zoo.
If you can’t think of an idea, I recommend checking out Groupon to see what they have in your area. Even if you don’t purchase from there, it will get you brainstorming! Have you ever been to a murder mystery dinner? Or waterfall repelling? How about an escape room? These are all activities near my husband and I right now!
Meet with your ‘original’ friends
As much as you want to be with your spouse all of the time, you have to have time apart. Allow each other to do things with friends. Whether it is college buddies, work friends or even family, you should never exclude the people who became a part of your spouse’s life before you got married. Remember, they have helped shape your spouse into the person you love.
Set up a ME day
Create a day that is just about you or your spouse. Maybe you make a breakfast in bed and let him decide what he wants the two of you to do for the day. Again, this should be a two-way process. He should do the same thing for you.
With the ideas above, I’m sure that your marriage will start off on the right foot. Through the years, you will learn more of these tactics to strengthen your vows. Don’t stop even as you grow older together.
