Technology has infiltrated every part of our lives. Smart phones, tablets, texting, social media and other facets have changed every aspect of our lives. This is even true about marriage. But is technology an aid or a hindrance in your marriage? That depends on the type of person you are. If you are addicted to your smart phone and ignoring your significant other then your tech habits are getting in the way of a healthy relationship. However, you can use technology to your advantage. In fact, it can be a useful tool in having another way to communicate in a healthy manner with your spouse.
Have you ever been accused of harping or nagging by your spouse? A text message or an email can remind him or her without getting their dander up. Using an online calendar like Google calendar can help you make plans and schedule alone time together. You can text sexy or affectionate messages when you are busy, to keep the spark alive. You can also text to let your significant other know you are thinking about him or her. If you or your spouse is addicted to the Internet or some other type of tech device, you need to have a serious heart to heart talk about it. Schedule time when the phones are put away. No matter how incredible technology is, it will never be as important or fulfilling as spending personal one-on-one time with the one you love.
