Reconnecting with your spouse

Reconnecting with your spouse

25 Jun 2022 by Ted Escobedo   2 min read

Every couple needs time to connect. It’s essential for happiness and satisfaction in a marriage. Each of these exercises, recommended by relationship therapists, have been proven to help couples get back on the same page. Incorporate a few into your lives — some require as little as five or 10 minutes — to get back to that good place again.

We assume that we know our spouse so well that we can almost answer all questions for them but to avoid this, experts suggest asking questions you might not normally ask. Think: What advice would you give yourself 10 years ago?’ ‘If you could reverse one mistake in life, what would it be?’ ‘What was the most difficult thing you’ve ever had to share with me?’ These are examples from Nicholas Hardy, a Texas-based psychotherapist who specializes in individual and couples counseling and, yes, they might feel a bit weird. But they’re examples of the types of probing questions that can help a couple explore their relationship in less familiar ways. In turn, he says, “they will help you learn more about each other as individuals, and as a couple.”.

Acknowledging a physical attraction is crucial as we get older. We begin to feel more self-conscious about our looks, and it’s really helpful to know that your spouse still finds you physically attractive.You can leverage the language of physical attraction by touch. Something as simple as holding hands can help re-establish this connection, even if it’s only for a few seconds.”
