Always communicate no matter how busy you both are.
When we are drowned with work and overwhelmed by all of life’s must-dos, we are sometimes too tired to talk to our partner about how our day was, our fears and worries, our plans. Always keep an open line of communication so that you can discuss issues—or just about anything—about family life and your individual lives.
Set up date nights.
Rekindle your love for one another by setting up romantic date nights for the two of you. You can cook together, savor roast beef with wine, or enjoy a platter of sushi and tempura. Talk about the things you never had the chance to talk about before and make date nights something to look forward to every month (or every week).
Give each other time out.
Yes, you’re in this together. But it also pays to have some time for yourself. Encourage each other to take a break or do something as a hobby. Take turns, get some rest, and come back stronger together. Use that time to take care of yourself so that you can continue taking care of your kids and each other.
