No doubt you are familiar with the phrase “back to square one”, meaning going back to the beginning or starting over. It is likely this phrase came from the early days of board games. Players move pieces across the board toward the finish line, until an unlucky roll of the dice or a bad move lands them back at square one.

For marriage, going back to square one is a good thing! If you feel like you’ve gotten bogged down, it may be just what you need to get back on track.

Remember what it felt like to be newly married, newly in love?

It was so easy to overlook little offenses. Now… what was a cute little quirk drives you insane?

Words of affection don’t flow quite as easily as sarcastic comments.

Take a do-over so to speak, and remember why you fell in love with your spouse in the first place.

There was a reason! It’s time to recapture that spark that first brought you together.
