How to Be Present in Your Marriage



Daily Huddle ferris

When it comes to marriage, being present means being a winner.

There are so many distractions in life. From meetings to movies, parenting to planning, the list goes on and on. But succeeding in marriage requires us to be present. So how can we do that? Well today, let’s talk through how you can succeed in marriage by being present physically and emotionally.

  1. Be Present Physically: First and foremost, it’s crucial that you’re present physically. Sure calls and texts are meaningful in a marriage. But nothing can replace actually being together. That’s why we want to encourage you to get home on time, make plans together as a family on the weekends, and be near your spouse as much as possible.
  2. Be Present Emotionally: Next, it’s important to be present emotionally with your spouse. It’s one thing to be sitting next to your wife on the couch. But it’s a whole other thing to be engaged in conversation with them. So put down the remote, put down your cell phone, and put down the computer. This allows you to choose being present emotionally with your spouse!
