Sports Interfering in Your Marriage? Take a Deep Breath & Try This!

Does it seem impossible to spend time with your husband? Is he always stuck in front of a game, and you hate sports? Trust me. A little compromise goes a long way. Try this approach and see what happens:

  • Surprise him with tickets to a live sporting event. (You might be surprised by how much you enjoy the environment.) 
  • Slide a little closer and ask him to explain the finer points of the game. 
  • Compliment him on how much he knows.
  • Repeat.

If in the end you really hated every minute of it, then try something else. You have to find the common ground, and it should be more than those beautiful kids.
