BATH TIME- TIME TO INCREASE INTIMACY

I was having a late night chat with my gal pal recently when I mentioned that my hubby and I take showers together. She was surprised and asked whether that was our normal practice. I realized that for the years we have been together, the only exceptions to the rule were when we visited the in laws, they visited us, or the obvious, when either of us happened to be away from home. It is like our little ritual. I never gave it any consideration until now. It is our time to chat, catch up and be simply close to each other. There is something intimate about the experience. What is not romantic and relaxing about warm water, soap suds and two persons in love spending alone time?

BATH TIME IS HAPPY TIME !!

When was the last time you observed two toddlers or young children splashing around in a bathtub? The problem usually, is getting them in. Once in, there is usually tons of giggles and loads of laughter. Think about this, where is the one place most people sing, think, daydream and even pray? That's right, in the shower. Bathrooms see the birth of many a singing legend and just as many a singing disaster! When my son gets into the shower, he is transformed into a music sensation, or so he thinks! I can think of the years before I remarried, the many conversations I had with God, aloud, under the flow of warm water. It was pure therapy.

THE BATH: THEN AND NOW

Historically, the Roman Bath houses were places where persons congregated not only to bathe, but also to discuss business, exercise, get a massage, socialize. It was the place to be. Sure men and women did not bathe together but a visit to the bath house was regardless a social event. You could enjoy refreshments while engaging in conversation. Sounds like what many people do today, right? I am sure you have at one time or other, soaked in a bath tub whilst sipping a glass of wine or cool beverage. If you haven't, try it! Why shouldn't my bath time be a time to catch up with my hubby? We live in a busy world. We are working longer and longer hours and there is just so little spare time. Many families, with their crazy schedules, often can't find time to sit together for meals. Marriages suffer while there is a general break down of communication within the family unit. In an odd way, our bathroom is our meeting place and our daily shower is a time for us to reconnect. For us it has become second nature. Oh, it is also a great way to conserve water if you are conscious about water preservation!

Bath time is indeed happy time, it's been said, and for us it is. So shower with your spouse; bathe with your beloved, save water and strengthen your marriage.

      Great ideas and love the video and photos. When I had a spouse, we used to bathe and shower together at times, not everyday but often.

      Kat11, so very true !! It is really so much about intimacy ! Often couples get so wrapped up in the trap of work and the hum drum of everyday living whilst the relationship suffers. Yes, it is tons of fun !! :) Keep hubbing my friend !!

      I couldn't agree with you more! Bathing with your better half is a great way to begin or end the day and it brings you closer together. I just wish we did it more often! Thanks!

      great idea! And I love the pictures of those georgous Roman Baths. I think the top one is Bath, UK, but I've never seen the other one - where is that?
