4 Ways to Keep Your Marriage Fun

 April means anniversary time for hubby and I, and honestly I couldn't be more excited! Any milestones my husband and I reach just make me so happy and make me feel even more blessed to have him in my life. Interesting story, we had to go to the bank earlier this week and the guy who worked there was asking us a lot of questions about our marriage. He asked how long we had been married and then he asked how long we had been together. On our anniversary, it'll be four years we are celebrating, but Marcus and I have been together for almost 10 years now. The guy at the bank was saying how people tend to not care about all of the years you put in before marriage and I couldn't agree more! Ten years, even if six of them weren't married years, is a huge accomplishment and I just feel so happy that it doesn't even FEEL like it has been 10 years! It feels new and more fresh and fun every single day!
Our relationship just keeps getting better and better because we make it a priority to have fun together. We both have busy schedules (Marcus definitely being more busy than me at times) and we don't always get along, but no matter what at the end of the day we always find room for fun. We laugh together every single day. Even when I'm PISSED at him, he can make me laugh y'all and that really just makes me so mad! But it also makes me feel happy that our friendship is so strong that arguments can't keep us from having fun, and I honestly couldn't ask for more. Think about your friendships. Who are the friends you more than likely want to be around the most? Probably the ones you have fun with! Marriage should be held to the same regard and I can truly say that Marcus is without a doubt my closest friend.

As far as finding what that fun looks like for you in your relationship, it'll take you digging into what you guys like. Find what similarities you guys have and even what differences that could possibly become similarities. What fun looks like for us may not look like fun for you, but I'm here to share four ways we keep our marriage fun in hopes that it will inspire you to spark some fun in your own relationship.
4 Ways to Keep Your Marriage Fun

1. Plan Date Nights Regularly
You should always remember to keep dating each other in a marriage. Try doing exciting new date nights together. Sips N Strokes is a fun date night or even rock climbing! Want some at home date night ideas? You can find some other cool and unique date ideas here.

2. Travel Together
It's no secret that Marcus and I always have the travel bug! Exploring new places together is so much fun. It doesn't have to always be far places, but you can travel on road trips together on a weekend getaway. I always think it's important to plan at least one trip a year with your significant other. As cliche as it may sound, you only live once!
 
3. Be Silly Together
My phone is FULL of hilarious videos of Marcus and I acting so silly together. They are amazing and I love watching them over and over again and just reminding myself how blessed I am to have him in my life. He gets annoyed sometimes when I pull my phone out to record him, but when we watch them back months later together, we both just laugh so hard that I know it's worth it.
 
4. Flirt With Each Other
So people think it's crazy that my husband and I still text and talk throughout the day like we are just starting to date. It's so natural for us though! If one of us leaves the house before the other, we text good morning when we get up. We check on each other throughout the day, and we send flirty text messages sometimes too. Those types of things don't have to stop just because you're married. I think they should increase honestly because there's no barriers and you know you'll be in each other's arms that night. ;)

What are some things you and your significant other do to keep your relationship fun? I'd love to hear about it in the comments!

Thank you so much for reading! xo
