How to have more fun with your partner

Tip #1  Schedule your play and be intentional.

Make a list of fun items you would like to do together and calendar when you will play.  Once you get in the habit of playing as a couple, make a daily ritual to have open play time and allow spontaneity to take its course.

Tip #3  Remind yourself of what brought you joy as a child and do that again.
