2. Repeat Romance
To keep love in your marriage, the best thing you can do is practice and repeat being romantic. Play games, watch movies and spend time together every evening. Most importantly, plan romantic evenings together as well.
Have a bubble bath with roses and candles. Pour yourself and your lover a glass of wine and sit by the fireplace to talk.
Studies have shown that romance and gazing into each other’s eyes have a strong connection. If you want to feel romantic again, gaze into the eyes of your partners and talk.
3. Plan a Second Honeymoon
The second honeymoon means that you once again go to a place where you can give all of your time to your partner. A honeymoon is not only for people who are married. It is like going on a vacation together and the goal is to fall in love all over again.
Do not pack your tourist hat and backpack for wandering in the woods unless you find wandering in the woods romantic. Your second honeymoon means that you get the time to relax and enjoy the company of each other and not waste the whole day at museums. (if you don’t even like going to museums).
Express your love for one another. Stay stress-free and live your honeymoon again. Make love every day and remember how you two fell in love, reminisce about the old days. Look at how much you have grown after your first honeymoon.
4. Schedule a Date Night
Plan a date night every month. A fun and romantic dinner is great for igniting the spark of romance in your married life. Plan the evening together and depending on how you like to spend the evening, curl up at home, or have dinner by the ocean at a fancy restaurant.
The date night is very important for spending some quality time. It is the best way to break the monotony of the things happening in life. Get intimate with your partner, hold hands, kiss, and take things to the bedroom.
5. Free yourself from technology
Unplug your life from technology. A study found that even if you have a cellphone in your life, you will be mentally distracted. Put your phone away and block out all electronic gadgets when you are trying to have some quality time. Do not have your cellphone in the same room because you will be more susceptible to picking it up and scrolling down the news feed on your favorite social media app.
Do not obsess over picture-perfect couples that you see on Instagram. Don’t chat with five friends at once. Stop checking your mail over and over again, it affects mental health. Make a habit of checking your phone every six hours and not in between when you don’t need to use it.
6. Renew your vows
Renew your vows and celebrate your marriage. Plan a day with your partner and close friends and family to get married all over again. There are hundreds of ways to plan the day. Depending on how you would like to do things, you can throw a large reception or spend the whole day alone with your partner. You can also take your kids with you to have fun, but then you will not be able to have much romance.
Do something special. Go on a cruise to take your vows or take them in a hot air balloon, on the cliff in front of the setting sun or at the beach. Choose a location that you like and don’t hesitate to tell your partner, how much you love them.
7. Celebrate the victories in life
