Your life changed ever since you met your spouse. And it’s wonderful! Your new life began after your marriage where the two of you started building your family and everything that follows. It’s amazing to walk through life’s adventures hand-in-hand with your loved ones.
It Takes Work to Keep the Spark
We wish things were easy, but they just aren’t. Along the way, problems between the two of you arise, sparks diminish, and you may slowly drift apart if things are not amended. We can’t ignore the fact that relationships take a lot of work. And it is up to you to decide if it’s worth to consciously work for it, or be passive and let your family fall apart.
Jill Savage, an author and speaker that encourages families, is here with us in this episode to help us recognize the signs that our marriage is slowly fading away and how we can reconnect with our partners. (Check out how to have the intimacy you crave.)

“Never sacrifice your marriage on the altar of efficiency.” -Jill Savage
Investing in yourself and in your marriage is critical. Be intentional with creating that space for your relationship to grow and connect. You’re doing your kids a disservice when your world revolves around them and not your marriage. Thus, it’s time to rebuild your relationship and be in love all over again.
