If I want to know how good your sex life is, all I have to do is ask you how good your communication is. I know that a couple who spends quality time… talking to each other every day has a better sex life than a couple who doesn’t communicate.
Now here’s a sad statistic…The average American couple spends 20 minutes a week talking. That’s averages out to 3 minutes a day. That includes Good Morning. What’s for dinner? Any mail? How are the kids? How was work?
What do you know of, that can survive on 3 minutes? Could you study for 3 minutes a day and hope to pass a course? Could you raise kids on 3 minutes a day? Could you have fallen in love if you spent 3 minutes a day together?
So how can we spend 3 minutes a day and think we’ll have a meaningful relationship? WE CAN’T! This week I want you to spend 30 minutes each day of uninterrupted time, talking together. And don’t tell me that you don’t have 30 minutes because I know you’re watching at least one hour of TV. If you have to, hire a baby-sitter so the two of you can be alone for 30 minutes…. Here are some ideas:
- Go for a nice long walk, holding hands, of course.
- Go for a ride in the car and stop at a secluded spot.
- Go to an informal restaurant for a cup of coffee.
- Sit down in your favorite room; put on some soft music and just talk.
