Monday’s Musings #153 & Togetherness In Marriage

Togetherness In Marriage | Monday's Musings | What Joy Is Mine

Togetherness defined is “the state of being close to another person.” Togetherness is more than just being with your spouse. It’s being there with them. Yes, being present, all in.

When we first marry, we’re all in. Being together is usually easier and desired. However, as life changes within a marriage that togetherness time changes, too. Finding that time to be together often gets put on the back burner and it happens less. Sometimes it gets taken for granted. Yet it is so important to help maintain a lifelong, successful marriage.

Making time for our spouse is so beneficial and very much needed. Togetherness in marriage builds unity and oneness. Its the time we can just be the couple God created us to be. We can be open about concerns, share stories that tickle us, or just share a moment. Togetherness in marriage must be intentional as we build families and a life beyond being newlyweds. So, let me encourage you to make time to be with your spouse. It can be something as simple as taking a walk together to a more elaborate activity such as a weekend getaway. Maybe plan a quiet evening at home or go out for a game of miniature golf. However you can make it happen, make it happen. Build your marriage and make it strong.

Here is the gift I gave my Love this year for Valentine’s. 12 months of date nights. Each month I planned some time for us to be together. We are not bound to one night a month but if we cannot add more, we at least will meet for the one activity for that month. He loved it!

Also, beginning next week Monday, over at Managing Your Blessings, will start the 31 Days to a Better Marriage series. Each day in March a different author will share encouragement on how to help better our marriages. I am blessed to contribute in this third edition alongside some wonderful authors. Make a note of it and be sure to visit and be inspired.

Now, let’s get to sharing.

    With there being such busy schedules and constant activity in a person’s life, intentionally setting aside time together as a married couple is SO vital! My hubby and I are now empty-nesters, so this has become much easier for us to do. But when the kids were younger, we made sure to have “date nights” regularly. Now, we love being able to do this without even scheduling it!! Thanks for hosting and sharing on Monday Musings!

      Ann…We aren’t quite empty nesters but older children in the house does allow us more time to do things together. And I agree with you that married time together is vital. Thank you for visiting. :-)

    Naomi, thanks for another great linkup. I always enjoy visiting. I especially enjoyed today’s reminder about being “together.” I loved this statement, “Togetherness in marriage must be intentional as we build families and a life beyond being newlyweds.” Blessings!
