To many couples, saying “I Do” and saying the vows on the big day not only mark the union of two spirits; it also marks the day when their real life together begins. While most couples look at the union as a reason to strengthen their love for each other, keeping the passion burning gets more challenging as their lives become intertwined with many responsibilities. The fizzling out of romance happens in a majority of marriages in due time. How do you talk about saving your marriage when the only reason you want to keep it is to keep the family intact?
Regrettably, this is a common notion among couples: loyalty is only protected as a matter of necessity to keep the family bonded. It is tough to sustain love and passion in a marriage through the years and the rough times. Marriage counselors can suggest a lot of therapies and solutions, but these can be futile when their hearts are not fluttering for each other anymore.
Can romance be the right cure to saving your marriage? It can be. Hearts that feel the romance can feel the love and the passion. These are powerful emotions that can drive couples to work harder on their marriage. If you want to rekindle romance in your relationship with your spouse, here are some romantic and sensible ideas that you can do:
1. Start and end your day with a romantic gesture or word
This is not just about romance; it is also about reinforcing positive behavior. This can let you focus on what is right and good about your relationship. When you are happy as a couple, you have a better disposition to handle the trials during the day and that makes your life as a couple less stressful.
2. Go on a date
Despite busy schedules and long years of marriage, make it a point to set a time when you can be alone together. Get away from the usual sources of stresses for both of you. Go someplace where you can take pleasure in each other’s company. Marriage must not end your sweet nothings and little romantic escapades. These can help you weather the storms in your life.
3. Surprise each other
Why not surprise your wife with chocolates or a bunch of flowers even when there is no occasion. And the wife can surprise the husband with a massage using romantic aromatic oils while their favorite music is playing.
4. Grow together
Many husbands and wives start drifting when one or both discover some interests that leave out the other. It is quintessential to acknowledge that spouses are separate individuals with different interests and preferences. Despite being caught up in one’s own world, make room for the other and try hard to enter each other’s world.
Working on marital relationship is never easy especially when you are saving your marriage. You need not wait for that time when love and passion have completely been drained. Save you marriage with romance; a little romance can go a long, long way.
