At the beginning of your relationship everything was rosy – Some years down the line it’s a different story. Yes, you still love your partner, but at times it can feel that the romance has left your marriage.
Here are a few ways to spice up your marriage and to remind you to appreciate how special your relationship is.
Buy 11 roses and one fake one…leave a note that says I’ll love you until the last rose dies. (Who says women can’t buy flowers for men?)
Wear your partners’ favourite perfume when you’re together.
Take your partner out to dinner, or even better, surprise him and book a night in a hotel.
Dance together – It doesn’t have to be the salsa, just put on your favourite song and hold one another.
Tell him you love him! – A simple gesture, but do you say it often enough?
Turn off the lights, light a candle, listen to some classical music and cuddle.
Don’t concentrate on his annoying habits – we all have them.
Initiate sex more often. Step out of your comfort zone and try something new. Make sure you read our articles if you need some inspiration.
Don’t spend hours moaning about your problems and grievances. Share your problems, but get the balance right. Don’t be too negative, you’re positivity can change the atmosphere in an instant and be a welcome change.
Plan something exciting together – a weekend break, trip to the theatre or a holiday. It’s always nice to have something to look forward to.
Wink at him from across the room when you’re at a social event
Laugh – have a sense of humour and spend time laughing together
Prepare a romantic bath – dim the lights, use candles and incense. Fill the bath with bubbles and exotic oils, have a bottle of wine and a bowl of strawberries on the side. Use soft sponges and luxurious smelling soaps to wash each other, then fill a large jug with the warm scented water and slowly pour it over your partner. Have plenty of freshly laundered bath towels ready for when you get out.
Give your partner a sensual massage. Use oils, feathers and ice-cubes to enhance the experience.
Love one another and respect each other. You have come on a long journey together and shared many things. Remind yourself of how you would feel if your partner wasn’t in your life anymore.
