How do we build a strong, loving and passionate marriage? Part 4 - Fun and Laughter

Fun and Laughter
Marriages can be a battle of “The Wills” or “The Sexes”, a place of sheer misery rather than utopia.
We forget how to have fun and laugh. When last did you do something crazy or unexpected?

Send your spouse an sms saying; “You’re the hottest thing alive” or tell them; “Honey that shirt makes you look so sexy!” Flirting is a wonderful way to bringing fun into the marriage.
It may have been so long ago that you last flirted with your husband, that the idea seems totally foreign to you. Never fear. Start slowly and get into the swing of it, it will eventually become completely natural to you. Don’t let the excuse that you can’t do it, stop you. Forge ahead. Start with a text message if the thought of doing it in person makes you uncomfortable. You will see such a positive response in your hubby, which will spur you on…
What did you do when you were dating? Was there something particular you enjoyed doing together that you don’t seem to have the time for now?  Plan a special occasion where you organise to do it again.
Don’t take things too seriously. If you have a romantic evening planned and it doesn’t work out exactly as planned (and let’s be honest, it hardly ever does), remember to laugh about it and create a memory together.  As it says in Ecclesiastes 8:15: “So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life. That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them under the sun.”
