Once the emotional high of the honeymoon is gone, reality can come back to bite you. You might have spent months or even years looking forward to your big day, and now that it’s over, real life finally starts to kick in. It’s essential to find ways to celebrate your first year of marriage, and we’ve included some tips to help.
It can be easy to forget you still need to spend time with your partner when dealing with work, finances, and family obligations. Try to find the time when you’re both off to check in, decompress, and most importantly, have fun! Even if it’s just watching a movie together with a big bowl of popcorn on the couch, it helps to slow things down and have a fun time occasionally.
Find a Hobby Together
While having your separate interests is fantastic, it can be good to find a new hobby you both can share. It can be an adventure exploring different experiences, such as rock climbing or yoga, before finding a hobby you both realize you enjoy. Having a hobby you share helps carve out a time you can continue to bond and craft new memories you can reflect on together.
Keep up the Intimacy
Getting married is one of the ultimate declarations of love for each other, but that doesn’t mean you should forget to say, “I love you” as often as you can. Remind your partner how you feel for them with little notes around the house or simply wrapping your arms around them in public. A little effort goes a long way.
