You have now entered a “No Phone Zone.” That’s what Chris and I refer to any time that is not allowed to be interrupted by technical gadgets such as phones, iPads, Kindles, or laptops. If someone calls during date night, don’t answer. We’re in a No Phone Zone. If we’re having a serious discussion, we get a text message, don’t look. We’re in a No Phone Zone. No surfing the web, no reading of blogs, no editing photos. Nadda. Just pure couple-time.
I tend to be ADD, and this rule keeps me focused on my MIP (Most Important Person) in this world – My Man. Now that doesn’t mean we don’t make exceptions. If it’s a really important phone call, we’ll ask the our partner, “should I get this?” We defer to the other person to decide. This rule has worked well for us and thwarts hurt feelings. My love language is quality time, so this rule is oh-so-important to me.
Rules like this one are great for fostering a safe environment which is essential for healthy marriages. Try it out, and keep your MIP really the most important person in your life.
