Activities are good, but intimate sharing should be maximized when couples are together.
For most, evenings will be the best time for this, after work and other endeavors are completed.
Personally, my wife and I always try to leave the last hour or more of the evening for sharing and prayer.
We may have family time before that where we eat dinner, talk, watch a TV show together with our daughter, etc., but with the last part of the evening, we want to focus on one another.
This is good to consider about marriage and especially one’s first year, which establishes a foundation for the rest of marriage.
Do you want to have a marriage where your mate comes home, kisses you on the cheek, and then gets on the Internet, TV, or phone for three hours before bed?
Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
If one aspect of this tri-unity is missing, couples will lack the intimacy God desires.
