Connecting with Friends as Couples

friends

After wrestling our calendars for I don’t know how many weeks, we finally got together with Gary and Christie.

 

We’d been wanting to get together with them. We finally settled for lunch. We couldn’t even get an evening.

 

There was something about reconnecting with good friends that we haven’t seen for awhile that empowered our own relationship—just to talk, to commiserate, to celebrate, but to be in the prescience of good friends as a couple.

 

It really is a supportive thing. Our marriage benefits a lot from hearing what other couples are going through and sharing the ups and downs.

 

And being honest. Friend, think about that in your own relationship. Make sure you’re making the time to connect with friends as couples together.
