Well one of the things we’ve long practiced with couples we’ve done premarriage couseling with is this thing called a Marriage Tune Up.
That’s right, just an ongoing way to check in with each other and do some work together that strengthens your marriage.
At certain points…three months after you get married…seven months after you get married…a little tune up.
Yeah, it acknowledges theres some predictable wear and tear just like on a car or whatever you’ve got that you can really deal with and prevent some hard times.
Right, and we’ve structured that into our own marraige. Three times a year we want a little tune up for the two of us or retreat to recharge our own batteries and our own marriage. The point is friend, to think about how you can give your marriage a systematic tune up.
