“Never overlook the power of simplicity.” —Robin Sharma

making marriage simple

Marriage begins with a couple who love one another, have hope for the future and a desire to build a life together.

It all starts with a beautiful wedding. All of it planned down to the smallest detail, no matter how big or small the wedding may be.

Marriage seems pretty simple when you look at it that way, doesn’t it?

But as the years go on, sometimes the love, hope and desire for each other and the marriage gets lost.

The intentionality fades away and you become concerned with other things, forgetting the importance of The 6 Pillars of Intimacy. But why?

Let’s go back to the beginning to understand what happens.

In a wedding, it’s easy to spend tens of thousands of dollars to make those 6 hours perfect.

But upon reflection, you may find that although a wedding is fun, if you had the choice, you might have made it much simpler. You may have chosen to simply focus on the two of you, including only those that are most close to you.

This pattern can happen in your marriage, too. You focus so much on the externals that you forget to focus on making marriage simple.

Sometimes, you get so busy keeping up with everyone else that your marriage becomes complicated because you don’t focus on the two of you.

You forget that marriage can be simple if you focus on the right things.

And in making marriage simple, you’ll focus on strengthening your pillars of intimacy over the years with your spouse.

Go back to the basics and start with having a shared foundation. The two of you came into marriage with your own ideas, models, and baggage. So choosing to build on that same foundation gives the two of you a shared language and a shared understanding.

You must be intentional, fully present, and never give up on building your pillars of intimacy every day. Remember, even 5 minutes daily can be so significant to shift you and your spouse.
