After a few years of marriage, you may feel you don’t have much to talk about anymore. You spent time talking about the plans for your future and what you both wanted out of life. You shared your dreams and shared your fears for what lays ahead. Before marriage you probably felt as though you had so much to talk about, yet now you wonder where’s all the talking went?
Talking is an important part of our lives. It’s essential for work, rearing children, and especially in our marriage. We should never stop sharing our dreams or plans for the future with our man. We should continue to confide in our husband when it comes to our fears and hopes. After several years of marriage, we should have so much more to dream about and plan for. The longer we are married, the greater the conversation should become.
The more we talk, the more we’ll bond and connect.
Talking and relaying information creates a desire for intimacy. Your conversations will obviously change with each season you go through, but communicating should always stay flowing. If we stop sharing our hopes, future plans, fears, or disappointments, we’ll began to feel distant. Even if you have let the distance creep in, it’s not too late to began talking again and growing closer. Think about it. If you never really talk to someone, you won’t have much of a desire for them.
Doing fun activities together is a great way to get conversation going. Even if you don’t know a lot about his hobbies or interest, ask questions and try to understand. It’s those little conversations that pave the way. Don’t let business, tiredness, or anything else stop the flow of talking with your husband.

Father, thank You for the gift of communication. It’s vital to our lives and more importantly, our marriages. Help us to carve out time to talk and share with our man. We never want to stop growing in our relationship with him. May we never stop sharing hopes, dreams fears, and heartache with our husband. Have Your way in our marriage and conversations. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
