Mary E Hanks Inspiring Hope
Tip #3 for reconciliation in marriage:
Be romantic.Be romantic.
Being romantic means something different to each couple.
We have our own history together.
Our unique love story.
married couples have a love story
Now that you've been humble and vulnerable with each other, think about what drew you together in the first place.
Remember those beginning days of love?
What attracted you to each other?
Her eyes?
His smile?
The way she listened to everything you said?
The way his face lit up when you entered the room?
What drew you together as a couple?
Start simply.
Hold hands.
Reminisce.
Go for long walks and talk
a lot.
Reconnect.
Get to know each other again.
Do some of the things that drew you together.
When you were dating did you go out to dinner?
Did you go to the movies?
Spend as much time together as you can.
And cling.
Married couple walk and talk
Walking and talking was a huge part of our marriage restoration.
And in the years ahead, it would become a big part of our love story.
You can certainly sit and talk.
But walking together, hands linked, or arms around each other, provides a shared adventure and an opening of hearts as you tell stories and laugh.
And do laugh! Laughter is healing.
And soon, if you're like us, you will feel yourself bonding together again.
It won't be the same as when you were dating.
But it will be something new and sweet, linking the past, the present, and your future together.
 Romance your wife
I need romance like I need air.
It's part of who I am.
It's part of my love story with my husband.
You should romance your spouse in the way he/she needs.
Does she like roses?
Does she like to dress up and go somewhere fancy with you?
Does he like you to bake him a cheesecake?
Be kind and do those things for each other.

Allow time for your romance to blossom.
Talk about what each of you would like to do/what each of you need.
Allow for surprises.
After 40 years of marriage, I still enjoy being romanced.
married love
You, as a couple, are on a journey.
You will have storms.
But you can get through them
together.
When the going gets rough, consider these steps: be humble, be vulnerable, and be romantic.
Your marriage is worth every bit of effort you put into it.
After weathering some storms, your relationship can be even stronger.

You are in a beautiful love story.
The two of you.
As long as you both shall live.
Cling.
Kiss.
Pray.
Watch a sunrise.
Stay together.
You can weather your storms together.

Note: I'm not a counselor. I'm just a girl with a mended heart who's weathered a few storms.
