Reconnecting at the end of the day: How do you greet your partner when you first see him at the end of your day? The way you reconnect sets the tone for the evening ahead. A hug and a kiss are a wonderful reentry ritual. Even if you’re preoccupied or frustrated, make the effort to give your mate a hug anyway. Then tell him you’ve had a hard day. By letting him in on your reality you give him valuable information he needs in order to relate well with you. Giving each other an emotional update coupled with a warm embrace will bring big dividends of mutual understanding, support, and shared peace.
