Something that simply can't be overlooked is having your own identity and having your own walk with the Lord. Just because you are married doesn't mean you have to share everything with your spouse, as in, you need to do everything as a married couple. You are on your own journey and need to have your own personal conversations and studies with God. You need to be able to pray for things that sometimes just need to be prayed for individually. God can teach you things about your own personality on your own and help mature you in His ways and doing these things by yourself can work wonders in your own life.
Joining a ladies' or mens Bible study can incredibly beneficial. It allows you to therapeutically work through sex-specific concerns with other members of your own sex. Retreats are another great way. I encourage everyone to have a life of their own, in addition to having a life with your spouse.'
