There are six external activities that can help you build a strong intimacy of your relationship and marriage.
1. Laughing Together:
Laughter is an entry point to privacy. It's like an instant marriage vacation and the best way to keep a perspective when things go wrong. When you laugh together, you will weep together and feel more able to trust each other as you share your feelings. You can withstand everything if you can find fun in anything.
Don't take things that seriously. Calm down and stop yourself when you're ready to get angry and use the love language of laughter instead. When this is your behavior at home, then you can take this behavior on the road with phone calls and little imaginative things you can do when you 're gone.
2. Encouraging Each Other:
Become the cheerleader of each other. Learn how to encourage and support the activities of your spouse. Listen and really take an interest in the things that your partner wants to do. Show your love for your husband. Any chance you get, praise him both in public and in private. Build your wife in front of others and give her honest credit for the success of your family.
Let your spouse know that you really appreciate him or her. The more we build up our partners, the more we respect them and build us up in exchange.
3. Touching Each Other:
The strength of personal touch can not be underestimated. You have to grow a good habit of touching each other outside the bedroom. Intimate touch is a love affair of holding hands, cuddling, stroking each other's hair, arms or legs, and other ways of expressing physical affection.
Touch is the basis on which couples grow a healthy love for each other. Touching your partner prevents you from having to touch someone in the world of so many lonely people. Touch prevents you from seeking a replacement for what God made for your marriage. Intimate touch doesn't have to have sexual contact,however and we also need to develop a language of sexual contact with our spouse.
If you understand to touch your spouse, you lose your desire to touch someone else.
4. Talking About Your Feelings:
One of the greatest barriers to marriage growth is the lack of discussion. Couples need to think about their feelings. Life isn't perfect, and marriage isn't perfect. Your partner is not perfect, nor are you perfect. You need to speak to your partner about how you feel and what you're dealing with. Traveling with unresolved problems will literally make the heart colder.
Set aside some time for the two of you to go out and talk each week. Inform your spouse what's going on every day and what challenges you've had personally. If you learn to invest time together while you're at home, your time on the phone will increase in meaning and depth while we're on the road.
5.Forgiving and Being Forgiven:
We must not allow hostility to build up in our marriage; we must learn to forgive both our spouses and ourselves. Conflicts in marriage are going on, so we need to give our partners permission to tell us what they're dealing with. The feelings of everyone are valid. We need to know how our spouses feel about the issues that cause conflict between us.
If you ever don't share and forgive, you 're not in the right position to see your partner or yourself. We can not express love and receive love properly if we do not forgive ourselves.
6. Protecting Your Image of Your Spouse:
It's really the biggest weakness you will face while you're on the road. Intimacy with your spouse must not only be created, it must also be secured. Our pictures have to be genuine, not make-believe. What we see on a pay-per-view or on the Internet is not a true source ,if we look at other images as sources of physical intimacy, we set ourselves back and block our view of seeing things clearly. If we think about them and meditate on them, we rob ourselves of true intimacy.
It's really the biggest weakness you will face while you're on the road. Intimacy with your spouse must not only be created, it must also be secured. Our pictures have to be genuine, not make-believe. What we see on a pay-per-view or on the Internet is not a true source of intimacy.
So if you start finding true intimacy with your spouse, you lose your desire for alternatives instead and try to protect your relationship. The goal must be to seek and seek out those things in your spouse that will increase your love and intimacy. Your spouse has to be the most important person in your life.
