Do you and your spouse have any relationship rituals that you share together?
Recently I was invited to be a guest on Golden Opportunities! You can watch the interview by clicking on the video below.
Relationship rituals are habits that you form together and are exclusive to you and your spouse. They aren’t rituals that you would do with anyone else. They help create and support a special bond in the relationship and are performed consistently. And they increase compatibility between couples and strengthen the relationship.
They should be done consistently but that doesn’t mean they cannot change over time to keep some variety in them.
Here are some examples:
• Walking together everyday. This is great for private time to chat and connect.
• Code words that no one else knows. Sometimes we need a neutral code word to initiate a change in behavior in our relationship.
• Making the effort to touch one another occasionally at a party even though you’re busy visiting with others.
• A 10 second kiss every night instead of a peck on the lips.
