So Mac and I don’t have kids just yet, only a puppy who sometimes he feels like a kid….Anyway, its easy for us to be so busy we don’t see each other one week and then we feel bad so the next week all we do is stay home and hang out. This means I don’t go to the gym, he doesn’t get any guy time and we both end up a little sick of each other.
A lot of marriage is about balance but this is one of the areas where a lot of people struggle. We need to make sure we have enough time with each other to keep our marriage strong, but there are also very good reasons for time apart. Time with the girls (or guys) is needed. Face it as well as your spouse knows you sometimes you just need some time with someone who really gets being a girl right? How about exercise? As long as its not hours long daily this is a good thing. Exercise helps with health, mood, and has many more that benefits for your marriage. There are more good reasons to be apart but I’m sure you get my point. Balance is everything.
