If you have been brought up with the value that procrastination is one of the seven sins, stop right on your track. “Do tomorrow what can be done today”, can be your mantra if you want to save your marriage from sagging and bring back that flash and glitter to your relationship.
From good friends to lovers, we become husbands and wives and then parents and so on. Romance is perhaps the first thing that comes under the axe, as we grow together. Or do we really grow older together? You are busy with kids, kitchen, career, laundry, not necessarily in that order and your partner has a completely separate set of priorities with perhaps a time-consuming hobby like golf or fishing thrown in. After sometime, you suddenly realize that you are married only on paper but living more as two friendly neighbors.
Some couples feel this is the natural way of life and let things take its own course. Of course, they realize their mistake when it is too late. If you have woken up to the fact hat your marriage is dwindling and more importantly you manage to convince your partner to think likewise, consider yourselves lucky. You have woken up at the right time. You ought to do something before your marriage decays further.
Here are some suggestions, which may seem silly initially, but if tried sincerely, may yield the desired results:
o Start being genuinely interested in your partner and his or her life. It may surprise you but you could find things which are intriguing to you as well!
o Start doing things which you use to do before you tied the knot. This includes doing activities together like an after-dinner walk, going for long drives, dinner at a quaint little restaurant away from the crowds and so on. As incredible as it may sound, these things can work like magic.
o Spend as much quality time together as possible. You can always shelve your domestic chores for later, if you are serious about bringing back romance into your marriage.
o Start treating your spouse as your best friend. Meaningful communication can bring even rank strangers closer.
o Learn to laugh together and at yourself. Perhaps you are taking life too seriously.
o Rekindle your sex life. However monotonous it may turn out to be, there are several creative ways you can enjoy each other’s proximity in bed. This can be a great bonding agent in a sagging relationship.
