My husband and I have been through so much with our son having autism, losing our house, My husband going back to school full time, and a ton of other stuff that has gone on. We feel like we really don't even know each other anymore and don't feel the effort. Well I do, But that fades when he doesn't. We are strapped for cash just like almost every other american out there so I was wondering if any of you had any ideas of things we could do that didn't necessarily cost much money or a baby sitter. Thanks and look forward to hearing your responses!Thanks!

I enjoy packing a lunch and going to the park. I am not sure where you live but here in Texas there are quite a few State Parks that are free to use. Guys can take a hike. Look at your states web site and you can find tons of low cost things to do. Any time that you guys can get to spend and talk will help. Just do not give up on each other.

Thank you so much! I love the idea of going to the park and taking a hike. It's things like that I think we need. My husband is not much of a talker or sharer, but if we can do things that give a chance to open up to having a conversation without pressure then I think that would help us tremendously. Great Ideas. =)

I don't know how you and your husband are but I can tell you about me... hope it will help. Sometimes I feel the same, I feel down like nothing really maters in this life. But then I sit next to my girlfriend and look at her and I see how beautiful she is. I play with her hair, I touch her face with my fingers and suddenly I start feeling better, I start feeling the love. I think if you and your husband try to stay close to each other and just calm down, you'll start to feel the love that's inside you. You can try taking walks in the park, holding your hands. Sit down in a quiet place and talk about everything that comes into your head. You will rediscover each other. Try to be happy about any small things that you see. If you make him smile look at his smile and think that he loves you and that you are important to him and you'll start feeling the love and you'll feel much better. Hope you manage to feel close together. With you the best.
