7 Secrets to Keeping Your Marriage Hot

5 Jun

Wedding coupleKeeping your marriage hot is not about an Arizona get-a-way in August.  It is not about both partners being in pristine shape, and living at the gym.  It is not about sitting side by side tanning in the sun, and yet in totally different worlds.

I am personally in the kid-raising phase.  We have three boys – 10,9, and almost 3.  Our house is always loud.  Our house is covered with toys.  Our house is filled with energy.  By 7 pm each night, we start looking at each other and wished that it was time for them to go to bed.

In the midst of this chaos, my wife and I have to be intentional to connect with each other.

It is about connection and intimacy.  Something that doesn’t happen by accident, but takes work.  Here is another great article by J. Lee Grady that talks about what it takes to keep a marriage “HOT” in any phase of life.  J. Lee Grady is the former editor of Charisma.
