My husband and I are approaching our 10th anniversary. I’m thinking a get away to Chicago. He’s thinking tropical. Honestly, even a weekend in a nice hotel in our town sounds great to me. I just want some alone time with that man!
Why is it important for married couples to occasionally get away together? It gives you room to connect in ways that are difficult amidst the daily grind. Yes, good communication on a regular, even daily, basis is foundational to a strong marriage, but don’t discount how a weekend away could boost that connection!
“But what if we can’t afford to get away?” some would say. I hear you. We are definitely in the camp of frugality if we want a getaway trip on the horizon. You may have to get creative. Shop for off-season vacation packages. Look at places within driving distance. If you know of friends who have a cabin or second home, humbly ask if they would help you invest in your marriage (my husband and I did this two years ago with a friend’s house in Phoenix).
And if you absolutely can’t afford an overnight away, consider a day-venture. Spend the day together enjoying a local winery, national park, festival or quaint shopping district. Eat good food. Talk. Laugh. Relax. Touch. Your marriage is worth it!
