What do we have in common???


If you’ve ever read the book ‘The Five Love Languages’ by Gary Chapman you will know that one of the love languages is Quality Time. It’s one of our top two love languages and it’s what most marriages thrive on. Whether ‘Quality Time’ is taking a Sunday drive together, playing a game of golf, or intentionally sitting on the couch talking, it all spells love and intimacy for your marriage.

I often hear couples say that they struggle to find something that they both love to do. Maybe your partner used to go golfing or shooting with you before you got married but now won’t have a bar of it. My husband used to drive two hours to take me shopping then follow me around all night while I shopped my heart out. With no complaint!

Well, that’s all changed, I now know he hates shopping and yes, I dislike golf too!But that doesn’t mean that you can’t begin something new together. Take a dance class, go to the gym together or begin a new hobby that can be yours afresh. Don’t buy into the lie that says you have nothing in common – create something new.

P.S. If you’re right in the middle of Covid restrictions right now, it’s a great time to take a walk with your partner and enjoy that special Quality Time together.

💥 DISCUSS some of the activities that you like to do together and make a list of new options for the future, then book it in.

Have a great week,

Rick & Fi ❤️
