Its time for the BUBBLY BLUES AND BLISS …Matchmaker Ana is back!
Question: How to keep the spark alive in marriage?
1. Routines: Don’t get in them. If in them, get out of your current routines.
After two years, you’re in a comfortable routine—work, home, dinner, bed. Days off, you shop for things for the home, go out to eat, go to the movies, or visit friends. Wondering how I know? Because EVERY NEW COUPLE does this.
Remember when you first started dating? You actively looked for new ways to experience your partner. That does not have to end. Take an art class together. Go on day trips to semi-local places you’d never frequent by yourself. Take turns introducing something new to your relationship. You will be happy you did!
2. New people: Introduce new people into your relationship. Wait! Hear me out.
Sex can get routine, too. Why do you think so many people cheat? Many are bored. They want sexual excitement. You can give your partner that. I call it ALL-DAY ROLEPLAY. You dress like your alter ego…meet your lover at a bar…use fake names. Flirt as if you’re single…go home with your new “friend”. Go all out! The rewards you reap will be worth it. I promise.
3. Communicate. Communicate. Communicate.
We aren’t really taught how to communicate and that spills over into never learning the communication styles of our partners. We fail to let our partners know when one way of communicating no longer suits us. Successful communication makes everything about your relationship better. Keep the lines of communication open – always! You’ll have a long and prosperous relationship.
Two years down. A lifetime to go. Isn’t that the saying? Keep believing in love. It’s such a beautiful thing when it’s done right. And it sounds like you are doing it right! Always remember your “why I fell in love” moment. Don’t allow things to get boring and routine. Keep it fresh! Good luck lovers!! ( ˘ ³˘)♡
