If You Could Give Only One Piece of Advice…
Make your relationship #1. Life can get in the way with work and children and the relationship can get pushed aside. Do a date night every week. It’s important to always make time to connect with your partner. Whether it’s in front of the TV eating popcorn or going out to dinner. It should be a time set aside you have committed to each other to be together.
