Reconnecting With Our Partners

Reconnecting With Our Partners

Do you and your partner focus more on your kids than on each other? Have you started forgetting what it’s like to enjoy intimacy and quiet time as a couple? Do you need a refresher course on why you liked each other in the first place? Help is here.

Remember the other important relationship in your life? The person you decided to build a life with? Parent alongside, for better and for worse? 

After kids arrive and take over your lives, it can suddenly feel more like you’re angry co-workers at a 24/7 daycare. That part gets better with time. But experts say we need to nurture our marriages along with our children, so there’s an “us” left when the kids leave home. 

Reconnecting with our partners takes focus, and planning ahead, and getting intentional– but it’s also totally possible. In this episode Molly and Blaire talk about how it’s working for them– and interview two very special guests: their husbands! 

Here are links to some writing on the topic that we discuss in this episode:
