Five Ways To Grow Closer To Your Partner

When you’re in a relationship, it’s important to take the time and effort to continually strengthen your bond with your partner. But how can we do this? In this article, we discuss five easy ways to grow closer to your partner, no matter what stage of the relationship you’re at. Let’s explore how we can nurture our relationships and draw us even closer together.

Respect and regard

Men and women are uniquely different! Paul attempts to show this in Ephesians 5:31: “However, each of you should love his wife as himself, and the wife should show respect for her husband.” When a man loves his wife as much as he loves himself, he will treat her with respect, and when a woman respects her husband, she demonstrates that she genuinely loves him. In other words, when husbands love their wives as much as they love their own bodies, they treat their wives with respect, which demonstrates their true love for their wives. Respect from wives demonstrates to their husbands that they are cherished. Respecting the wife is an act of love, just as respecting the husband is an act of love. Does that make sense?

Date Night

I believe that a couple of occasions is crucial. Why not spend the weekend or one night of the weekend at a bed and breakfast? What did you do on your first date together? Try once again. Was it planning a stroll? Before we were married, my wife and I used to enjoy picnics. After we got married, I am responsible for the fact that we stopped having picnics. I fumbled the ball.

Worshipping Collectively

I am confident that this is overlooked. The likelihood of a couple remaining together increases when they pray together. Take turns praying or alternate between praying. Permit spontaneity; abandon a predetermined duration. I am not suggesting that you shouldn’t be intentional and set aside a specific time each day to pray together, but don’t worry about the length. Simply pray spontaneously with your partner, perhaps while waiting for an appointment. It is necessary to pray with and for your children in their presence.


I do not believe that specific jobs should be assigned to men and women. In other words, I clean the dishes, remove the trash, and mow the lawn. I occasionally cook, but I will not insist on doing so if my wife prefers to prepare meals. I respect that she does not want me to do the laundry, but I also remove my dirty clothes and place them in the hamper. I authorize her to mow the lawn if she so chooses. We appear to become closer when we clean the house, cook, change the sheets, make the bed, or rake the leaves together. I do not understand how this works. I am merely aware of its existence, which is sufficient for me.

Love Letters

When one of us will be gone before the other awakens in the morning or when one of us arrives home before the other, we always leave a note like, “Hi, sweetheart. I hope your day was productive. I anticipate arriving home around 6 p.m. Take care until we meet again. The phrase “I love you” was followed by our signatures. We also ensure that if one of us leaves while the other is still at home, our last words to each other will be “I love you.” I do not know when I will last see my spouse, so I want the last words I ever say to her to be “I love you.”


In my prayers, I frequently and consistently thank God for my cherished wife. I am aware that our spouses, like our children, are gifts from God, and that we should be grateful to Him for them, love and serve them, and seek ways to grow closer to them, as the marital relationship is analogous to that of Christ, the Bridegroom, and the church, His Bride.
