Additional responsibilities mean difficulty in setting priorities. Sometimes, the marriage comes in last, and couples forget to check in with each other.

2. Spice things up with something new
Your relationship may start feeling routinary and the excitement may not be there anymore. Why don’t you try something new together? Learn a skill or introduce a new ritual that will make both of you discover something about each other from time to time. Invite your husband to a yoga class by Urban Ashram or attend a spiritual parenting workshop to learn new techniques in mindful parenting together.
3. Do household chores together
Planning to do some weekend cleaning? Split the household chores and help one another as much as you can. When looking after your kids, designate who’s responsible and let the other get some rest, and vice versa. Like what they say, teamwork makes the dream work. Also, dividing the work at home and having clear assignments is one way to prevent feeling resentful towards a partner.
