Habits of Happy Productive Muslim Couples: They Make Time for Each Other

Busy on your mobile phone all the time? Too absorbed in your work/with your friends that you are not giving due attention to your spouse? If yes, then this must stop, insha’Allah!

Couples need to make time for each other to increase and deepen their bond. Letting oneself be absorbed in everyday life while neglecting one’s spouse might be a major reason why many couples are growing apart this day and age.
