For the next few weeks on the podcast we are doing a series on the Top 8 Marriage Issues in 2019. These 8 issues are the top 8 issues that Dr. Kim has seen this year with marriages. We will be breaking them down starting with #8 and working our way towards the #1 marriage issue.
In this episode Dr. Kim & Christina talk about the 7th biggest issue in marriages this year which is: boredom.
With time, some spouse’s become bored with their relationship. Boredom in marriage is a dangerous thing to dwell on and can easily slip into even bigger issues.
It also doesn’t help that our culture is telling us that monogamy and marriage is boring. But marriage does NOT have to be boring. There are real, practical things you can do to keep boredom at bay and protect your marriage from boredom.
“Connection = Zero Boredom in marriage.” - Dr. Kim
“You don’t have to be screaming and yelling and throwing things at each other for you to go to marriage counseling.” - Christina
“Boredom can happen if we’re not intentional about giving to our marriage as much as we’re taking from it.” - Dr. Kim
“Be intentional about having fun with each other, even when life gets busy; remember there’s something that got you to the altar in the first place.” - Dr. Kim
“Find creative questions to ask each other.” - Christina
“There are going to be times you get bored in your marriage, it’s about recognizing when that’s happening and committing to reconnecting so you don’t stay bored and disconnected.” - Dr. Kim
