The NewVision website out of Uganda reports that men and women are both spending more time developing their careers, leaving their partners feeling neglected. Folks, we think the old saying “you can’t have your cake and eat it too'” comes in to play here. We have NOT found a way to nourish a relationship without spending quality time with your partner. If you are spending most of your time working, coming home tired and going to sleep, your relationship will suffer over time. Pay attention to your relationship and find some balance. Otherwise you may have more time on your hands to develop your career but no relationship! We realize that there are times when jobs and careers must come first for a short period of time. During these intense periods of work, use your best communication skills to demonstrate your love to your partner. Then when the workload eases up, take a vacation or long-weekend together.
