When you’ve been with someone for a long time other things in your life can take over and put distance between you. It is common to be in a rush, but not taking the time to connect with your partner could take a toll on your relationship.
Being present and supporting your partner during times of transition helps to preserve the feeling of unity and togetherness in a relationship. It is in those tough times that marriages are tested and that they can become strained. By expressing that you love your partner and by being present, they are less likely to feel unloved or to stray.
Taking the time to actually kiss your partner will help to keep the spark alive. It may only feel like you have a half-second to get out of the house before you are late for your next appointment, but taking a few extra seconds to keep the romance alive is worth it.
