How To Keep Hope Alive In A Childless Marriage
There are no quick tips for coping with childlessness and finding ways to be happy. But, your life might turn out better than you imagined – and you can blossom into a woman you didn’t expect to be! Here’s how to cope with your childless marriage. You didn't ask to be childless, but you can be happy anyway.
Focus on the positive
One way to be happy as a childless couple is to focus on the positive. If it feels like something is missing in your marriage, take time to examine it. Kids won’t fill that void, only complete honesty can do that. Kids only make it worse. Parenting is different than people think it is before they have kids.
Get emotionally and physically healthy
If you’re prone to the blues or depression, you may not find this helpful.
Happiness is a decision, work at it. Do yoga, pilates, strength training, and cardio almost every day. Eat healthy foods, and avoid sugar, fat, and anything that makes you feel heavy and sluggish. And, try to get eight hours of sleep a night. You’d be amazed at how your health affects your mindset! And one benefit of childlessness is that you're free to get as much sleep, exercise, and free time that you need until kids come.
Stay connected with your spouse – and find joy together
One way to cope with childlessness is to reconnect with your spouse. Travel, go boating, go on hikes with your dogs, and volunteer with a charity organization. Those activities help you focus on the lighter, happier things in life.
Find your own coping strategy
I need to remember that God does things for a reason. If you believe God is watching our for you, you’ve found the most important way to be happy in a childless marriage.
