Bless your spouse before falling asleep
The liturgy of the sacrament of marriage reflects the fact that spouses are a gift for each other. This gift, received from the hands of God, is renewed each day of our marriage. It can help our marriage be stronger and longer lasting if we make that fact explicit each night, praying together and renewing our mutual self-giving before falling asleep. It can be as simple as praying, “Thank you, Lord, for my wife/husband, whom I love.”
