A word to couples: We are loving the effect of this experiment on our marriage. Missy and I have always been blessed with remarkable compatibility, and I can speak for both of us when I say we truly are each other’s best friends. There is no one with whom I more enjoy spending time, and she feels the same way about me. But without the television and movies, we’ve had more meaningful time together as husband and wife than we’ve had in a long time. Even the 10 minutes or so a night it takes to film our little videos have become a joyful time of creativity together.
If you feel you distant from your spouse, you may want to consider whether the quality of the time you spend together is enhanced or diminished by electronic amusements. We’re glad we did!
