Be intentional with your relationship

This week I have been working with many people who are having major conversations within their relationships.
Some have gotten so much closer to each other that their love has rekindled. I kept hearing this phrase that we used to be ships passing at night, and now we actually converse, look at each other’s eyes, watch movies, eat dinner together, and feel closer to each other like the beginning of our marriage.
Some relationships are suffering, every movement, every body language expression, every word, and tonality heard gets on the nerve of the other and escalates the fight. Since they have to be within the same space while they are agitated, it leads to more escalation and threats of getting separated or divorce.
Lots of affairs have become revealed since the couple sees each other more often and have become more in tune with the behavior and more access to each other’s phone or computer where the evidence of the extra-marital relationship gets revealed, creating devastation within the relationship and the family.
Some couples are reporting to have better sexual experience since they are less tired, well-rested, and feel closer to each other. Some have stopped having sex since they fight a lot.  Some have lost their desire for sex since they see each other too much and their instinct to hunt has been minimized.  

This has become the 6th or 7th week that couples and families have been in a shelter in place which is intensifying the family dynamics.
How are you handling your intimate relationship?
What stresses do you experience in your relationship?
How do you contribute to elevating the stress in your relationship?
How do you deescalate the tension in your relationship?
How do you promote Love & Peace in your relationship?
How do you keep the passion and eroticism alive in your relationship?
You play a big part in creating a great relationship. Observing your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and intentions will help you navigate your state of being and actions toward a relationship that you desire. Be intentional with your relationship.
