Save Your Marriage in Two Minutes

In two minutes you can brush your teeth, take out the trash, get the weather report, or save your marriage. Sound impossible? It’s not. Here’s how: spend two quick minutes each day, or a couple of times a day, changing the way you react to things or slowing down to notice your partner’s value. Your relationship will be miles ahead of run-of-the-mill. Try these two-minute marriage-savers:

1. Morning ritual: A friendly “good morning” greeting. Share a kiss – not a quick peck, but a passionate kiss that leads to nothing but a good day.

2. Before dinner treat: Touch each other, close your eyes and do a two-minute meditation. Nothing helps digestion or love like diffusing the stress of a day.

3. Never go to sleep without a sweet kiss, a warm embrace, and two minutes of talking about things that made you both feel good today.

4. If you have an argument, sit facing each other, in chairs or on the floor. Hold hands and look into each other’s eyes for one minute. Close your eyes and breathe deeply for one minute. Now, for a minute or two, speak to each other as if you care about your partner’s needs.

5. Write a well-thought-out, positive observation about your spouse’s conduct or character and tape it to the bathroom mirror before you go to bed. In the morning, your partner’s day can’t help but start out beautifully.

6. Even if you’re stressed to the max, find two minutes to call your spouse and say, “I’m really busy, but I was thinking of you, and I love you.”

7. Do something outrageously sexy. Whisper something in her ear. Promise him something he’d never expect, but would adore. Keep your promise.

8. Instead of bickering about an old issue or sniping about a chore neglected, buck up and handle it yourself, just this once, without saying a word. Smile.

9. Spend two minutes on the phone organizing a special date that perfectly suits your partner’s personality.

10. Spend two minutes being silent when what you actually want to do is criticize, admonish, or set your partner straight. Let it go.

11. Send your man flowers. Share something with your woman that you usually reserve for guy-time.

It’s tough to keep a relationship flowing with that gorgeous rhythm and sexy undercurrent it had when it was new. But it takes so little effort to take a hum-drum couple and fire them up to warm romance, or maybe even steaming hot passion.

    Great tips, Taryn!

    Those are wonderful tips for making a relationship really fulfilling. The result of just two minutes worth of thoughtfulness can add up to a lifetime of happiness. It’s definitely worth taking a moment to do something to remind someone you care about how much they mean to you. It’s equally true with friends and family–if someone is important to you, let them know it!

    But just like anything else in a solid relationship, it has to be given as well as received. I know it’s never fifty-fifty in a relationship 100% of the time, but it’s a bad sign if a partner isn’t willing to reciprocate. Absence of these small gestures or a one-sided offering of them is definitely a sign that no matter how much time you spend, the relationship is probably not salvageable (and probably not worth it, either).

    Hi Taryn,
    You are right on so many counts, just the little bit of efforts can really enhance your marriage, its the small things that truly count. The strongest advice you gave was letting go, you can’t change the past so the best option is to leave the past in the past.

    May I add… you can have a lot of fun with texting too.

    Blessings and Big Hugs!

    Good article, good tips.

    I especially liked # 3, but they are all good.

    Timing is key…..try to start this early on in the marriage from the get-go in a relationship, before it’s too late and you both grow apart.

    Blessed Be )O(
