Sharing Interests

A lot of people, once they're married, find it all too easy to give up their career and the activities that once excited them. They make their spouses and kids their sole source of entertainment. I have nothing against this, in fact, I am one of those women who gave up everything for my family. But after a few years of being married, everything became a routine. I'm sure I'm not the only one who felt this way. Hubs and I were fast enough to detect this problem early on.

Although we find time to hang out with our friends, we rarely do. He would rather stay home than go out on a drinking spree with his friends. He taught me a lot of things that I never imagined I would enjoy. Who would have thought I would learn to paint 135 scale miniature military models? We even tried building a diorama of World War II soldiers resting.

We did a lot of things that we both enjoy. I guess it's one secret why we've lasted this long. Part of a relationship is trying out what your partner's passions are. If he loves watching action movies and sports, sit beside him while he's watching. If he likes playing at Online Casinos, join him. Get interested in his hobbies, who knows you might end up enjoying it too. Any marriage will be better off if you cultivate outside interests. It's a great way to nourish yourself and recharge your batteries.
