It is rather common for partners to lose interest in a relationship as life begins to show its true colors, whether you've been in a relationship for several weeks or several years. This is especially true when dealing with the harsh reality of the pandemic when all of your focus would be diverted from your relationship.
Relationship anxiety isn’t something that’s not easy to chew. It can even cause relationships to end and go as far as causing divorce for married couples. Having some anxieties in a relationship is normal. Everyone experiences those at least once in a relationship. If you’ve had a past relationship in the past or even if you’ve witnessed a bad relationship (such as your parents) then it only makes sense that you’re going to have some anxiety over your current relationship. But it does get to a point where it not only wears down on your mental health but your partner's health as well. This even includes the entire relationship too. These are some tips for learning to cope with relationship anxiety.
Wait a minute! One day a year is barely enough to celebrate the love between me and my husband.

The holiday becomes more about gifts and fancy dinners than true love.
I remember back when Tim and I were first married? The romantic candlelit dinners, in anticipation of that good night kiss! Oh such great memories. . . . date nights were so fun and easy!

Let's face it! Wedding planning can be a stressful process, and it's common for brides to feel like hindsight is 20/20 once they have gone through the process. At the end of the day, it’s important not to sweat the small stuff and to realize your years of marriage are much more important than the day of your wedding ceremony.
If you know anything about me and my story, you know that a few months after I met my husband we said, “I Do.” You also know that after I found out I was pregnant 2 months later, I was scared and confused so I tried to push Tim away. I thank God every day for his strength, humility, and long suffering because being able to share my life with someone who “gets me” is a truly amazing thing.
