Romance in a marriage may take a backseat when work and caregiving responsibilities take precedence over “couple time”. However, setting aside quality time together is an important investment in any relationship. As Focus on the Family Singapore’s Principal Counsellor, Ms Alicia Boo, points out, “If a couple doesn’t do that, the relationship may evolve to become merely functional or transactional over time.”
One way of spending time together is by doing date nights, which can be weekly or monthly. However, when you’re on these dates with your loved one, avoid slipping into conversations about your children. “Instead, use the opportunity to get to know your husband or wife all over again,” advises Ms Boo.
