Social intimacy is the foundation of a great marriage: playing together, enjoying each other’s company, taking a walk, test driving a car. It begins by blending many of the interests of your two lives into one.

A simple way to build social intimacy into your marriage is to spend time together. It seems obvious, but for some reason, when we get married, we can forget to date. It can be a struggle to find time to spend together and nurture social intimacy.

Shoutout to a Listener

Our greatest challenge is my husband’s business and our estate planning process in regards to that and other assets etc. I’ve been a stay at home mom raising our 8 children.

His, mine and ours. Money, secrets and oh boy! It seems it’s only my problem to him.

How can we get on the same page? It seems messy.

Thanks,

Marcia
