Marriage tip!

Here is a marriage tip I recently read:

Turn Off the TV and Talk!

"With children and our work between the two of us, it's easy to just not have time to communicate. While we enjoy watching our favorite tv shows together, we communicate much better and feel a lot closer when we turn off the tv and the computer and actually talk to each other.
Even the stressful conversations about things like money go better when we are open and honest and try to discuss things when there are fewer distractions.
It's too easy to simply exist in the same house without actually connecting. When we tune into each other instead of everything else, it brings us much closer and helps us realize we are more in love now than the day we got married. And that's saying something!"

Thanks for the great post. We gave up TV for lent 2 years in a row and discovered something each time; that it changed our lives.

We eventually threw away our TV's, now over 8 years ago, and it was the best thing we ever did for our marriage and our children.

I noticed that in many ways we are removed from many of the evils of the world. We found out that we can get all the news we need in a few minutes of talk radio a day.

Thanks for your blog and spreading the good news....

God keep you,
