  • Hi Ladies- I was hoping for a little advice today. My husband and I have 2 small children at home (both under 2). We are tired! I feel that we need a little time to work on our marriage but don't really have the resources to away for a weekend alone (ie Marriage Encounter). Does anyone have some suggestions on books, activities we could do on our own after the kids are asleep to work on our marriage, improve communication, etc? Thanks

  • I suggest reading (for you) as a great place to start! It has *completely* changed my outlook on my marriage (we were at a low point & I was exhausted + hubs & I were not the best communicators)! Now I am MUCH more understanding of him & him of me. Hope it helps you like it did me!!

  • I would recommend saying a rosary together nightly after the kiddos go to bed. We started doing this in January after our priest suggested a family rosary daily during one of his homilies. We initially did it as a family, but with little ones, it just wasn't working (more stressful than prayerful). We don't get one in every night, but 3-4 nights a week we do and it seems if one of us asks, the other finds it very difficult to turn down. Many times say it for our marriage, but also other intentions. As I was reflecting on our marriage the other day, thinking how great it's been the last 6 weeks or so, this is the only thing that I can come up with that is different......

  • Do a date night in! Get a bottle of wine, some candles, whip out the Scrabble board, and enjoy! You could also take the time to sit and write your husband a love letter during the kids' naptime (or during our lunch hour if you work). Then put it on his pillow and offer to put the kids to bed that night so that he can read it. Another fun thing is to get one of those "fun questions" books from the library. Like "would you rather" questions or hypothetical situations. Then after the kids go to bed, you could ask each other the questions... Guaranteed laughs! There are tons of books to read, but overall just have try to have a little fun and laugh a lot!

  • I think the books by Jon Gottman (a research pyschologist) who has actually done research on the things that keep a marriage together is another idea. He has some fun quiz's/activities that couples can do . . . my husband and I try and do one around our anniversary every year (wish it was more often LOL)

  • will not have another day, minute by minute will not go back, so be sure to cherish every minute. There is a pursuit, obviously disappointed, but would not go back. There is an effort, obviously fail, but do not want to stop. There is a love, obviously wrong, but would not let go; there is a beautiful, obviously fantasy, but do not want to wake upLife is sometimes not with right and wrong measured; life is not a coin that is not being anti-; life is not go, either black or white. Life, so many things in life, this is a lot of love, there is no reason, and without reason, love is love, love is love, there is no result, and without result, willingly, no regrets. Life is not really perfect, not only is the most perfect real beauty; life is not always successful, is the real success only stood up in frustration, only the flash of life is both eternal life. Do not pessimistic that he is very unfortunate, even more attitude towards life, happiness is their own thing, as long as like, you can always replace their remote controls, to adjust the window to the soul happy channel. Learn to be happy, even sad, but also smiling face. Institute of loneliness, not who will treat you as guarding treasure. Learn to be independent, can no longer blindly trouble others, their own thing their own. Institute of unsympathetic, the roll to roll, stay on the left. Learn to grow up, you can not be so capricious. Learn to forget, can not live in the past time. The mood is an emotional state, it has a good mood, it has self-confidence, and then have a young and healthy. To have a future life of longing, full of expectations, so we have a good mood, because the life is luck and happiness. Give yourself a good mood, let the world smile at you; to others a good mood, make us smile for life, good mood is the wealth of life, let us always accompanied by a good mood. People on such a life, fun is the day, is not happy day, so you must make yourself happy. People on such a life, not something wrong again, another broken heart is difficult to heal, so you will not regret it. People on such a life, after today unfortunate than you actually are still many people; not optimistic that he is very great, in fact, you just drop in the ocean. Learn to adapt, make your environment becomes bright; learn to adjust, so that you no longer feel sad; learn to be tolerant and let your life without trouble; learn dedication, make your life full of sunshine. In fact, the skies are blue, clouds the total to be scattered; in fact, the sea is not wide, the other side even to this shore; in fact, tears are sweet, when your heart to do so. With emotion to see the world is a tragedy, a comedy is a rational look. Sometimes not understand, just do not want to understand, and sometimes do not know or just do not want to say it. Sometimes he does see, but understand not do anything, so he remained silent. Some words, for keeping everything just some pain, only for silent forget some memories, only suitable for occasional out aftertaste. All the days will come, all the days, and will be the last, as if everything happened, and as if everything did not happen.Has been called back for a century,
