Are you married or do you currently live with you partner? For many couples, marriage or cohabitation, often spells trouble for many relationships in a long run. While there are a number of different reasons for the cause of this common issue, it is often attributed to a lack of romance.
To help you keep your relationship with your live-in partner or your husband going strong, it is important to keep the romance in your relationship alive.
As nice as it is to hear that you should keep the romance alive in your relationship, you may be wondering exactly how you should go about doing so. When creating romance in your relationship, it is important to know that not all couples are the same. For that reason, you may want to keep your partner’s wants, needs, or interests in mind. This is another key to having a happy and healthy relationship, compromise.
One of the best ways to keep romance alive in a relationship is actually quite a simple concept. That concept is affection. Never underestimate the power of affection, if you think about it you will actually realise some relationships started because of affection and it is unfortunate that even cheating. Those little touches on the face, a small kiss anywhere or even a simple shoulder massage or a hug for no reason can work magic. The truth is for any relationship to work it needs a bit of work and it cannot be one-sided.
Try to take some time for those little sweet gestures, like greeting with a hug or kiss when you come back home or first thing in the morning. Or cuddle a bit before rushing out to start your day. It doesn’t have to be an everyday thing but more often than not. Let each day be different and keep each other guessing and that will keep it exciting.
GO ON A DATE
It is also important to get out of your house. As with showing affection, many couples, after a period of time, stop going out on dates. Whenever you have a free evening, you may want to consider going on a date. What is nice about dates is that just about any activity can be considered a date. For instance, you can go out to dinner, see a movie, go have a few drinks at a local bar, go for some ice cream or take a long walk or walk to your nearest park and have a seat to chat.
All of these activities can be viewed as a date, there is no rule to how a date should be like. Social interaction, both with each other and with other couples, is important to the health of a relationship. For that reason, you and your partner should get out more and socialize.
COMPROMISE & SUPPORT EACH OTHER
As previously stated, a relationship is all about compromise and support. Compromise together with support is also a way to keep the romance alive in your relationship. As compatible as you and your partner or spouse may be, you may still have a few differences. Often times, these differences show on date nights.
When it comes to going on a date or just doing a simple activity with your partner, it is advised that you compromise and support each other as often as possible. This may include having alternate date nights. For instance, if your husband wanted to attend a basketball game, you can agree to do so, as long as he agrees to go the movies with you next time.
Compromise and support may be a bit of a challenge if there are kids involved but never let it go because that might be the end of your relationship not just end of romance. It might not happen as often as it should but make certain it never dies down. Support doesn’t always have to be physical presence but the right words or communication can show a lot of support. These are important part of any kind of relationship for it to survive. Life is generally all about that, if you want to keep those you love close to you. Please not that compromise doesn’t mean fulfilling your partner’s every desire or doing things you completely hate.
Communication is the key to finding out what each partner needs, their desires or what works or not anymore. It will help you know where to start if you are not sure and how to do certain things. It will as well reveal what you both enjoy and when do you compromise or how far you you’re willing to compromise because compromise will most certainly kick in but it must also be from both sides. Each partner deserves to be treated fairly and it that way the compromise will come easy knowing you have a fair chance.
Another important best way to keep the romance alive is communication. A healthy communication will save you a lot of heartache. Should romance start to fade away the couple can easily talk about it if they have a healthy communication. This will enable them to talk about how they are losing it and the way forward. They can sit and come up with ways and a plan to revive it all. There is absolutely nothing wrong to draw up a plan of romance. While drawing up a plan you might agree on trying out new kinky things or satisfying each other’s desires. Keeping quiet will only kill your romance.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Unfortunately, many couples get into a groove where they just become comfortable with their daily life. This often leads many couples not to hold hands anymore, kiss, or even talk about their day. It is important that you do not let your relationship get to this point, as it often spells trouble. As much as possible, you will want to express your love and appreciation for your live-in partner or spouse, both in action and in words.
As outlined above, there are a number of different ways that you can go about keeping the romance alive in your relationship. As difficult as love and romance may seem, it is important that you put forth the extra effort. Not feeling enough support is an issue that the two of you can resolve, but divorce may not be. That is why it is important to not let it get to that point.
