As good wives, we should be happy to meet our husbands’ needs. We should be so ready to meet his needs, that we are able to perceive his needs before he is aware of them himself. I know when kids enter the scene it makes it harder to find time for just he two of you. Sometimes we focus on the kids so much we forget we were a wife before we became a mother. We ought not to let our relationship with our husband start lacking because of the kids. After all, after the kids are grown and out of the house, you will be alone again. My husband and I try to make it a point to have date night where we get out of the house and have someone watch the kids. It’s not all the time, and maybe not even as often as once a month (although we do try), but we do make it a point to take time for ourselves. If you are in an area where you don’t have a babysitter or money for a babysitter, you could put the kids to bed earlier and have a movie night for just the two of you. My point is it is soooooo important to make time for each other so you can keep up with your relationship. Make it a point to make time for your husband today, maybe make him a special dinner followed by a movie and popcorn when the kids go to bed.
