Marriage Monday Topic,
I found this on Christines blog and loved it please visit it and let me know if you took part so I can see what you do on vacation...gee I am a busy body!!!!!
Do you take vacations as a family, with just your husband, or both?
We take vacations as a family, we realise that in a few years it will just be hubby and me, so we really take time out to be with our kidz.
What are those vacations like? Do they wear you out or refresh you?
Well we like to do fun things like ice skating and because we live close to the ocean I guess we are centered around the sea when it comes to holidays. so some are refreshing others are outright draining.
Do you schedule regular date nights? If so, do you talk about your children (if you have them) or have a children-free-conversation rule?
Yes we do, every afternoon when my beloved gets home the coffee tray is set with our special cups and a biscuit or two, and for the first half an hour it is our time where we catch up on the day and what is happening in our lifes, our date night is friday night as kids are at youth and we can go for a romantic dinner or dvd night depends on how busy we have been, this has been our saving grace in our marriage.
Do you have family out of town and if so, how often do you visit them? Is it stressful or relaxing to visit?
Yes we do have family out of town and we see them maybe once a year, its fun time but if we stay too long it can be stressful. Our children are free to live their lives in the safety of their home and I think that sometimes when with family that are older and set in their ways it can become difficult.
How do all these things affect your marriage relationship?
Beloved and I have a good relationship based on communication, and as long as those lines are open it doesnt have too much of an effect.
