The secret to a happy and healthy marriage is to re-vitalize it by constantly thinking of new ways to show love and appreciation to each other. Think of ways that you can make your spouse feel how important they are to you.
5 Tips to ReIntroduce Romance Into Your Marriage:
1. Reminisce About the Good Times …
Remember all the happy times you had together. Turn bad times around by remembering the love and happiness you shared during the good times.
Take walks together and talk about funny things that happened – laugh together. Walks are great to keep the communication open and improve your relationship.
2. Relive the Happy Times
If you had a fantastic first date – why not relive it?
My first date with Mike was breakfast at Denny’s and then miniature golfing. Every few years, Mike will surprise me by taking me to the same exact places again. Its fun and it’s romantic!
Visit the romantic vacation spot where you celebrated your honeymoon or anniversary.
3. Court Your Spouse
Schedule regular dates. Having some “alone time” can really liven things up a bit and put the romance back into your marriage.
It’s important to spend time alone … Away from your kids, your house and your work. It’s time to concentrate on making each other feel good.
4. Compliment Your Spouse
Nobody ever turns a good compliment down. As a couple, freely complimenting each other – and doing this often – would help put the romance back into your married life.
Also, over the years, you tend to overlook the basic things like thanking our spouse for a favor done, or complimenting her on looking great or saying I love you.
If you just go back to basics and not forget these simple courtesies, you will have a more respectful relationship that you both will be contented with.
5. Take Care of Yourself
One of the most effective and sure fire ways to put romance back into your married life is by improving your appearance. If you have had your hair done in a certain style for years, why not try to change it to look a little different?
Having your partner see you in a new light will may put the passion back into your marriage.
All in all, you still need to “work” on keeping your marriage strong and alive.
