For newlyweds, reconnecting with religious or spiritual beliefs and practices can be a positive habit to form together. It provides a foundation for a couple to grow and build their lives upon.

If both partners are committed to the same belief system, it can help them navigate difficult decisions and life changes with ease. Additionally, religious or spiritual practices can offer newlyweds a way to connect on a deeper level, deepening their bond and strengthening their relationship.  Here are six ways to start a spiritual practice as a newlywed.

1. Find and Connect with a Spiritual Community

It can be difficult to find time to connect with your spouse. You’re both working, and maybe even raising kids, and might not have much time for date nights or weekends away. However, there is one positive habit that can help you stay connected: finding a spiritual community.

A spiritual community can provide you with support and guidance, and it can be a great way to connect with your spouse. If you’re both looking for a way to connect on a deeper level, consider finding a spiritual community you can both be involved in. You can both attend services together, participate in group activities, and volunteer your time to help others in need. By connecting with a community of like-minded people, you’ll create a strong bond with your spouse that will last a lifetime.

2. Read Scriptures, Prayers, or Other religious Texts Regularly

It’s important to develop positive habits that will help to strengthen your relationship. One habit that is often recommended by religious leaders is reading scriptures, prayers, or other religious texts together on a regular basis. This habit can help to promote unity and understanding between you and your spouse. It can also provide you with guidance and support during difficult times.

3. Meditate or Pray Regularly

As a newlywed, it can be easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of newlywed life. One positive habit that can help you nurture your relationship is to meditate or pray together regularly. This can help you communicate openly and honestly with each other about your thoughts and feelings. Additionally, it can help you develop a deeper level of intimacy and understanding. By taking time each day to connect on a spiritual level, you can deepen your bond as newlyweds and lay the foundation for a strong and lasting marriage.

4. Contemplate the Nature of Your Relationship with God

This doesn’t have to be a formal prayer or meditation; simply take a few minutes to reflect on His presence in your life. You may want to ask for guidance in making decisions, or thank Him for His blessings. Taking a few moments each day to connect with God can help you both strengthen your faith and create a deeper connection with Him. It’s a positive habit that will enrich your life and relationship with God.

5. Seek Guidance from a Trusted Advisor or Mentor

Newlywed couples should seek out guidance from a trusted advisor or mentor to help them develop positive habits early on in their marriage. This is especially important if they want to maintain a strong faith-based relationship. A mentor can provide invaluable insights and wisdom that can help newlyweds navigate the challenges of married life. By seeking out guidance from a mentor, newlyweds can develop the habits and skills necessary to build a strong and lasting marriage.
