Today my husband came up with something brilliant! Absolutely and utterly amazing. In fact, I’m a little jealous that I didn’t think of it first, but I can’t wait to share this little tip that will save your marriage. The best part… it takes only 2 minutes.
Update: We are parents of a high needs child. We love him with all our heart but some days the struggles take a real toll on our family. This has been a game changer for us. Of course, we know we should be connecting on a daily basis. However, some days our attention and energy goes towards our children or handling meltdowns. This simple tip is something we always revert to on the worst of days.

Here’s what you need…
2 Minutes of Your Day
Are you ready to find out what you need to do for these two minutes? It’s really quite simple, but it is brilliant! For 2 minutes, I challenge you to hug your partner!
Yep, you read that right. Hug them. Put away your phone. Turn off the T.V. Let the kids pull your legs. Let the kid eat dog food (They’ll live).
It doesn’t have to be the most passionate hug in the world. It doesn’t have to involve anything sensual (I mean it can if you want, but that isn’t what this is about). This 2 minutes is about connecting. This 2 minutes is about stopping during your busy day to acknowledge that each of you exist and that you care for one another.
How many times have you gone the entire day without hugging your spouse? I know the first time my husband implemented this, it had been so many days I couldn’t remember the last time we connected. It stopped me in my tracks and reminded me that connecting is one of the most important parts of a healthy marriage.

Reignite the spark that brought you together, end arguments, and live a happy and fulfilling family life with the person you truly love…
We have 1 high needs child & 1 toddler.
Do you think this would work if I’m not even sure I want to be with my husband anymore or if I still love him?
I don’t know if it’s a bad patch (a 2 year bad patch) we are going through or if it just simply means we aren’t meant to be together anymore.
This is a great start for sure. I would suggest talking to someone about this for sure. Step one will be rekindling the connection.
What about a little massage on his neck and shoulders. Men love that.
Thank you! We are going through a very rough patch possible separation hope he sees me repost this and will give it a chance
So sorry to hear this. Sending you hugs!
