Last week I shared with you three tips for helping to keep the romance alive and strong in your marriage… this week, as promised, I am back with four more tips that can help rekindle the romantic flame and keep the passion alive in your relationship.
4)Keep the Communication going : Nothing harms a marriage more than a communication gap. Holding things to yourselves or not expressing them properly is one of the biggest marriage killers. A period of sustained communication gap can create so much of a void in a marriage that it can never get filled. So just talk and talk and talk and see all your problems, issues and grievances disappear into thin air. We provide very specific training during our christian marriage retreat weekend which can help you tear down the walls that you might have built up that are preventing you from having a real deep and meaningful relationship with your spouse, we will teach you new ways to connect with and and love your spouse through solid communication.
5)Express your love : Its never too late and too much when it comes to expression of love. How sweet is listening to a 75 year old telling his 70 year old wife that he loves her like crazy and she has been an amazing person to be with. Don’t we all want this, our partners expressing in loads that they love us. So instead of thinking that the other person already knows or has had enough of it or waiting for him or her to start, begin immediately. Just shower your spouse with the three most magical words on this earth.
6) Compliment : Nothing works better as a mood uplifter than a beautiful compliment coming our way and that too from the most important person in our lives. So what are you waiting for, just start complimenting your spouse every now and then, on her looks, on his intelligence, on the way she manages the kids, on the way he resolves the biggest of the problems…..just think about it, list can be endless.
7)Bond with the families: Last but not the least, marriage is not just about two individuals coming together but about two families as well. The better you bond with your spouse’s family the stronger is going to be the bond. Respect and love the family of your spouse as you do yours and then see the magic working.
Hope these help some of the couples around resolve some of their problems. Be happy my married friends. For more tips and ideas on building a stronger marriage visit our website to learn more about our intensive marriage counseling and how it can make a big impact in your marriage and your life.
