However, if your relationship is important to you, then you must decide to spend time with your spouse more than you do with friends.
Understand that spending more quality time with your spouse can only be compared to saving for the rainy day.
Each time you spend successfully together, helps to create strong walls around your relationship.
More so, when you spend little time together, then you are slowly building gap between the two of you.

The book of proverb 3 verse 5 and 6 says
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths.
That simply means that if you will make the efforts to depend on God’s direction only, then everything will work out well in your marriage.
8) Making your marriage a priority :- It will amaze you to know that lots of couples now never give thoughts about their marriage again once they get out of the house in the morning.
All they care about from that moment is their work and the business of the day.

He/she is always on the plan on how to make things worthwhile in his relationship with the family.
