Top 3 Reasons Why You Must Spend Time Together As a Couple

Someone rightly said, ‘Marriage is our society’s most pro-child institution. If you want kids to do well, then you want marriage to do well.’ But for most of us, the arrival of kids in a family throws the marriage out of track. Who is going to sit out late night with the baby? Who is getting the kids from school? These may be the only interactions you are having with your partner, on a daily basis.

You get so bogged down with these issues that, daily living becomes a source of stress and tension in the family. The result: couples fighting all the time, marriage breaking apart and love seem to be hanging somewhere in the middle.

So what should you do? The answer lies in spending some quality time or couple time with each other.

Why Couple Time?

The quality time that you spend together with nobody else interrupting you, has numerous benefits.

Here are three important benefits of spending couple time in a relationship.

1. A relationship, however strong it may be, does not maintain itself. If you don’t nurture the relationship with love and understanding, you lose connection with your spouse. Thus feelings of loneliness, despair and depression may result. With couple time, you communicate with each other, barriers go down, and these feelings too will disappear.

2. When you don’t spend time with each other, your relationship suffers. Then your children suffer too. Children are very receptive to your moods, and when you are unhappy, they sense the change in your behavior.

3. As children watch and learn, they will imbibe all your qualities, whether desirable or not. So as parents if you wish to have a sense of balance in the family, then spend some time with each other.
Communication is one of the important pillars for a strong marriage. When you spend time with each other, you realize the expectations and dreams of your other half of couplehood. You revive your friendship in the marriage, and also understand each other’s priority which makes parenting easier. When you work as a team, then there are less chances of becoming unhappy in a marriage.

Couple Stuff to do:

Here are some simple ways to schedule time together, with the idea to identify common interests, make time for them and spend some time together.

Couples with a baby can spend quality time in their relationship. If you have small kids at home then put them to bed early. And do something together like cooking a meal, having a candle light dinner, watching a movie etc. Think of the things that interest you, and do them together.

If you can schedule a baby sitter for some time, then you can take some time out to be together. Going for a walk, heading to a different place, movie, plays, dinner or any activity which both you and your partner enjoy doing, can be scheduled during your couple date.

Outdoor activities like trekking, cycling, jogging and sports activities like tennis can also be pursued. Such activities foster better relationships.

As Kavitha, a housewife, puts it, ‘When I spend time with my husband, by enjoying a walk with him every morning or just visiting a temple over the weekends, I feel I am sharing space with him. I feel connected and I am happier.’

Sophie, a mother of two teenage sons, agrees and adds, ‘The joy of doing something as simple as baking a cake with my husband or watching funny movies together makes my day lighter.’

Romance for couples need not be going to exotic destinations and spending time on holidays. It need not be expensive either, though couples new in the relationship may not agree. Couple time simply means spending some time together, to bring the romance back in your marriage.
