270 Seconds to a Better Marriage

Flickr user MissTurner

One of the most important things I’ve learned about being married (so far) is to make sure your husband/wife feels loved and appreciated.  I’ve only been married for a year and a half, so I realize this could change in the future.  It may go from feeling loved and appreciated to just wishing the wet towels stay off the floor.

But whether you’re a newlywed, been married for 10 years, or are approaching a 25th anniversary, the key to a better marriage may only take 270 seconds.

According to an article in Esquire magazine, here is your guide to improving your marriage.

1.  First thing in the morning, take 90 seconds to give your spouse the greatest “Good Morning” possible.  Tell him/her that you love them.  Awww.

2. Right when you get home from work (or any other time you’ve been away for more than 2 hours) take another 90 seconds to focus on your partner.  If they’re happy, you’re happy.  If they’re low, you’re low.  And make sure you look into their eyes when you recap your day.  Remember, it only takes 90 seconds of your undivided attention.

3. Sometime before bed, take another 90 seconds to engage fully with your mate.  Don’t talk about the kids, money, work, stress, or the past.  Just look into his/her yes, snuggle up, and tell them you love them.

After 7-10 days of focusing on your partner for 270 seconds a day, the marriage will change.  For the better, I hope! :)
