Make Sex Work
A marriage cannot be maintained if you never spend time together. And I would argue here that some sort of hobby done together is a huge benefit to your relationship. So play together, whether you go on bike rides, or take historical tours or race each other to finish the daily crossword puzzle. Zac and I spent my third pregnancy racing through the daily Sudoko puzzle. It was silly, but it was something we did together. So be willing to try a new hobby with each other; you’ll not only learn something new, which is good for your brain; but you’ll be better connected and stronger as a couple. Also, you’ll be adding something new and (hopefully) exciting to your routine, and that is a tremendous benefit to keep the marriage fires going.
