Tips to Better Love your Spouse
Have dinner together and pray together
A couple/ family that eats and prays together stays together
Prepare to love your spouse at all times
Love is more than feelings, it is a decision
Fill your love tank for each other
Remove clutter from your lives and drop the need to think everything is important. Focus on the things/ people that matter.
Love your children unconditionally
Spend time with them especially on weekends. Pope Francis encourages us to ‘waste’ them with our children
Make a lot of noise together
live, love, laugh
Create a loving and welcoming environment for your spouse
We all want to come home to a loving spouse/ family especially at the end of a busy day of work/ looking after kids
Listen to each other
Listen to hear and taste the feelings. And be present as you listen. One of the biggest communication problems today is we do not listen to understand. We listen to reply.
Make each evening special
It is a sacred time to be enjoyed with both, by both. Share what you are grateful for and give thanks.
The home is the domestic Church. Every home is called to become a ‘domestic church’ in which family life is centered in the lordship of Christ and the love of husband and wife mirrors the mystery of Christ’s love for the Church, his bride- Pope Benedict XVI (7 Feb 2007).
