Do you remember the excitement of your special day? You probably felt butterflies in your stomach; Nervous and yet so joyous to make your forever promise to your lover...
I take you to be my spouse...to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love you and to cherish, till death do us part...
And couples grow old together; they go through life's challenges, triumphs, struggles, and victories with each other. Marriage isn't always easy; there are moments when you will have to remind yourselves of the promises you made. Just as there are times that are priceless, there will be times that you would rather not have.
With that said, it is fair to say that marriage takes work. It takes mutual trust and commitment. Both husband and wife must come together and put in their efforts to love, cherish, respect, and honor one another. It is crucial to find ways to re-kindle the fire within your marriage.
Love is a constant process of tuning in, connecting, missing and misreading cues, disconnecting, repairing, and finding deeper connection. It is a dance of meeting and parting and finding each other again. Minute to minute and day to day.
~ Dr. Sue Johnson
Marriage is a dance. You will need to understand each other, stay tuned to the ques of your partner, and continually find ways to enhance your connection with him/her. As a dance instructor, I taught many couples on the dance floor. Some of the couples have started their classes with no connection; they were withdrawn from one another or tuned into their own worlds. Nonetheless, none of them left the floor the same; they were encouraged to connect, tune into one another, and create harmony with their movements, rhythms, and thoughts.
One of our couples shared a precious story; "When we showed our children the video of us dancing, our son asked me, 'Mom, will you dance with me like you dance with daddy?' and our daughter asked my husband, 'Dad, will you dance with me like you dance with mommy?'" Their children picked up on the connection they shared and wanted to be a part of that beautiful unity.
Finding different activities that will push you to come closer and connect is the key to enhancing and maintaining happiness in your marriages. Some of these activities might be; sharing the same faith and values, learning new skills together as a team, participating in activities that require you to move together, trying out activities that encourage you to think about each other, etc.
Ballroom dancing is a great activity for married couples since it provides them an opportunity to think about each other, connect through music, rhythm, and movements, and socialize and get to know each other in new and exciting ways. It's also a beautiful and elegant way for you to connect that will inspire your children.
We truly hope that this article motivates and inspires you to come closer as a couple and a family.
