Regaining Romance in a Marriage
Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Female
What do you do when you're not getting what you need romantically from your marriage? I want to fix it but I don't know how. I really just feel like I don't get very much sexual attention unless it's "hey wanna do it?"
Just about all relationships have the passion fade over time. It's a normal part of life. If the hormones and passion stayed at top level the entire time, you would burn out! But it does lead to people wanting to rekindle the romance after a while. That is why there are so many 'romantic getaways' hotel specials going on all the time.
I have a lot of tips on rebuilding the love here -
it is something you have to work on. Nothing in life is just handed to you on a silver platter. If you want more romance, you need to put time and effort into it. Make a romantic dinner. Light some candles. Watch a romantic movie together. Make a chocolate fondue and feed each other strawberries. It's not going to just happen on its own. You have to create the atmosphere for it to work. If it feels silly, just keep at it. The point is to get to the point where it DOESN'T feel silly to feel romantic.
