In an article in Relevant magazine, Debra Fileta, a licensed Counselor, lists five ways couples can invest in their marriage. She says, couples need to connect spiritually, and the best way to do that is to pray with each other about the concerns of the day. The second is to communicate meaningfully by setting aside ten to twenty minutes a day just to talk, sitting face to face. This gives couples a chance to catch up and keep up with each other. Fileta recommends that couples touch often because physical contact is important. She says couples need to confess and forgive and take time to get away on date nights or other opportunities to rekindle their love and friendship. Fileta says investing in a marriage means doing small things that have a large impact, and adds that it is never too late to start.—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
