Written By
Mary Rose and Ryan Verret

This time of quarantine has been a relationship accelerator for so many couples. For Better or For Worse. Starting today, what are five things you can do to make the most of this time together? There is a five-step process that we have seen work miracles in hundreds of couples’ lives. The process is this: Belong, Believe, Become, Beatitude, and Be Light. 

This time of quarantine has been a relationship accelerator for so many couples. For Better or For Worse. Starting today, what are five things you can do to make the most of this time together? There is a five-step process that we have seen work miracles in hundreds of couples’ lives. The process is this: Belong, Believe, Become, Beatitude, and Be Light. 

Belong – Do you feel connected to each other and to other married couples within the church? Do some of the things you enjoyed together when you first started dating, and come up with a list of things you would like to do again. Add some new things to the list that you would like to try together. Start working through the list, and invite other couples to join you either virtually or in person if your situation allows for it.

Believe – What do you believe are the essential aspects of a marriage rooted in God and of the covenant of the sacrament of matrimony? Simply thanking God for the incredible graces that He has given you in this gift of marriage can help you to tap into that reality, that promise, the gift and one blessing that was not washed away in the flood. Thank God for the challenges in your marriage and for being with you through each of them. Dream about the future together, and each of you, share three things you are grateful for today—right now. An attitude of gratitude, even in the midst of trials, can help shed light in a dark situation.

“It was the best of times; it was the worst of times,” is a great beginning precisely because it describes the paradox of anticipation. We’re roused by the rivalry between best and worst, two superlatives both as uncompromising as life and death: One must end if the other is to begin.
