Having fun together helps couples feel positive emotions, which increases relationship satisfaction.

Even with many married couples spending more time at home than ever before, we still have busy days, and it can be easy to feel closer to our kids than to our husband. But in the end, many of us also need to improve our overall connection to our husband.
What husbands are frequently working so hard to provide might not be what is really most valuable to their wife.
