If you have been with your spouse for a number of years, it can be all too easy to take them for granted. Over time, you can lose sight of what made them so special to you in the first place, treating them more as a friend than the person you share your love with. While this is certainly not the case for every couple, it is true often enough – but there are ways that you can overcome this type of relationship malaise. Help keep the spark in your marriage alive, both in and out of the bedroom.
Here are a few ways to rekindle your relationship:
- Be physical more often: A stagnant sex life is very often an indicator that there is something off about the rest of the marriage. You both need to make an effort to show your love in a physical way, no matter how many times a week. Try making things better by including an organic lubricant in the activity!
- Let your guard down: One of the signs that your relationship could use a little fine-tuning is how you respond to each other. For example, if love and compassion have been replaced with defensiveness and frustration, it is time for a complete attitude readjustment. You will have to learn how to soften up on each other and trust again.
- Make romantic gestures: Whether it is a bouquet of roses or something simple like picking up her favorite snack food, show each other that you care by doing something special each and every day.
