Three Reasons Why Marriage Matters | Marriage and Family (Catholic & Christian) | Scoop.it
I'm getting married in May. My fiancé and I dated for three years before we got engaged and couldn't be more excited to start our lives together.

14 SIMPLE WAYS TO CELEBRATE & STRENGTHEN YOUR MARRIAGE

14 SIMPLE WAYS TO CELEBRATE & STRENGTHEN YOUR MARRIAGE | Marriage and Family (Catholic & Christian) | Scoop.it
As we celebrate "National Marriage Week", culminating with Valentines Day,
I reflected with my bride on some practical ways to invest in our
relationship.  Many of these ideas come from our own limited experience on
this adventure called marriage.  Please share your own ideas in the
comments.

1.    Get out on a Date(s):  Take the time to talk, connect, and invest in
your relationship, even if only for an hour or two to rekindle the spark.

2.    Call, text or email your spouse throughout the week:  send a word of
encouragement or remind them of your love when you are apart.

3.    Plan an overnight getaway:  Get a baby sitter, and get some down
time.

4.    Date Night In:  Cook their favorite dinner (or carry out), get a
bottle of wine, rent a movie you saw together before you were married, and
enjoy.

5.    Get outdoors together:  Go on a walk, hike or some other physical
activity that you both enjoy.

6.    Read a book together:  Find a novel or devotional that interests you
both.  Read it together and/or separately and then discuss.

7.    Work Together on a Project:  Make a plan together, plant a Garden,
paint a room, organize the garage.  Take something old & make it new, give
it life.  

8.    Serve Together:  Go do one of the corporal works of mercy together
(visit a nursing home
or serve a meal at a homeless shelter).

9.    Go through your wedding album: remember & reminisce. 

10.    Start a Marriage Dream list: Share (short & long term) of what you
want to do
and where you want to go.

11.    Write your Spouse a Letter: express your love, tell them why you are
grateful
for them in your life, remind them of past memories, affirm them as your
partner.

12.    Forgive that Grudge:  Talk with your spouse, forgive them and move
on.

13.    Pray Together:  Share your struggles and what’s on your heart to God
through your spouse.

14.    Meet & Talk:  Different than a date, the goal of this time is to
plan and discuss life ahead as well as review how things are going.  Get on
the same page.

Above all, slow down this week and remember the gift you have in your
spouse.  Reflect on what brought you together in the first place.  Married
life is not easy (especially with kids), and can break down over time if
not cared for.  But, a married relationship can bring great fulfillment,
especially if we put forth the effort we once did while dating.  Happy
Valentines Day.
