Is your marriage in trouble?  Are you not as close to your spouse as you used to be?  There are hundreds of reasons why this happens.  Love takes a lot of work and many of us spend so much time on other things that we neglect our relationship with our spouse.

Here are a few simple steps you can take to bring back the magic and romance in your marriage.

  1.  Have a date night.  Devoting one night each week to your significant other is a great way to ensure that both of you are getting the attention you need from each other.
  2. Remember that love takes work.  Falling in love is easy, but maintaining it requires dedication and putting your spouse before everyone else on a regular basis.
  3.   Have sex.  This one shouldn’t require an explanation, but the lack of sex is a HUGE issue in many marriages.
  4.   Do nice things with no expectation of being paid back.  It’s easy to get bent out of shape when you do something and your spouse doesn’t notice.  Create a mindset that allows you to be giving.  Eventually you will be repaid tenfold.
