How To Restore The Flame When The Fire Has Burned Out In Your Marriage

Married couples can easily find themselves in a rut as the years go by. The children need to be driven to and from school and chauffeured to all of their activities, and the parents forget to take time for themselves. Sometimes, they even think that they will be able to pay more attention to their spouses after the last child leaves home, but they have many uninteresting years left to endure before that happens. These couples can take the time now to restore the flame they once had by setting aside time to try some of the suggestions in this post.

Remember What Made the Relationship Fun

A great place to start is to remember what made being with each other so much fun. The couple may be stuck in predictability with family concerns and work dominating their thoughts and time. This was not the case when they were first dating.

Couples need to ask themselves what made their early years interesting. For example, before these couples had children, they had time to take weekend trips together. They can restore the old flame they had by doing these sorts of activities again. They will not be able to be as spontaneous as they used to be, but they can begin to have the same types of experiences they had before they let family responsibilities take over.

Ask Your Spouse to Go Out on a Date

Dating is not just what people do before they get married. If they are wise, they will continue the dating process before the marriage, throughout the time they are raising their families and after they become empty-nesters. This strategy helps to put the spark back in a marriage if people take just one night a week to make the other feel special on a date. This does not require that they leave the house or spend a lot of money.

When they were courting in the beginning, sometimes, all couples did was rent a movie and pick up take-out at the nearest restaurant and then snuggled next to each other on the couch. This activity is enough to help couples remember how wonderful it felt to be near each other.

Show Your Appreciation

With people so pre-occupied with the laundry, the kids and the cooking, they may feel as if they do not have enough time in the day to make sure that their spouses feel special. People can always find a few minutes to let their spouses know that they are appreciated. This may mean that wives take a little time to write a note and place it next to their husbands’ shaving cream. A husband can pick up a little figurine and say that it reminded him of dearly beloved. These little actions let spouses know that they are thinking about one another and that they are not taken for granted.

Try New Things Together

The activities couples did in the past are helpful in returning the fire back to a marriage, but new things work to achieve the same goal as well. The adrenalin rush they received when they were first dating has not disappeared altogether. It still exists, but they will need to explore new activities that can mimic the lustful feelings they had when the relationship was new. This may mean that they begin exercising together, but it can also mean that they pursue something intellectual, such as learning a foreign language. As they work together to achieve a common goal, they will remember how it was to be a couple excited about each other.

Spice Up Things in the Bedroom

Couples are working hard, and a common complaint is that they are too tired at the end of the day to enjoy each other sexually. They may also have fallen into a routine in the bedroom that makes exploring each other not as much fun as it used to be. The fire can return in the bedroom as well if couples make it a point of finding new things to do. For example, if they find that they are in the habit of positioning themselves in the same way every time they have relations, they can seek a new manner of doing things that will make relations new again. People have many books or even videos that will help them learn something new to make their relationship interesting again.
