Have you ever considered scheduling things that develop not only yourself but your marriage? 

As a society investing in personal development is nothing new. Many people believe there is value in investing in their personal development. 

But where the conversation gets interesting is the choices that you make to continuously invest in your marriage. 

When you continuously invest in yourself there are some very distinct trends that many involve themselves in: 

  • Learning new skills
  • Expanding your education
  • Listening to podcasts
  • Reading books/reading the bible
  • Therapy
  • Journaling

It’s interesting that continuous investment in your marriage is not something that’s often talked about. In fact, it seems like for a lot of couples there’s this idea that you shouldn’t have to work at marriage.

That’s because we are taught that if we truly love each other this stuff, whatever the stuff is, wouldn’t be a problem. 

No one is doubting your love for one another, but what needs to be addressed is the idea that all things take work and your marriage becomes “extraordinary” when you continuously invest in it. Marriage isn’t a relationship where you sit back and relax or coast your way to success.
