Rekindling the Romance:
The Physical Side:
It´s not exactly PC or fair, but many people react differently to their partners based on their physical appearance. If their partner gains 50 pounds and starts dressing in grungy clothes, they might be less enthusiastic about being close to them than when they first met.
The first step is to acknowledge that this is taking place. Often the partner making this judgement has conveniently forgotten that he or she, too, has paid less attention to his or her own physical appearance in this stage of the relationship.
If being in shape is important to both partners, they can join a health club together, or go walking, or biking, or whatever else comes to mind. This discussion might be a way to draw the two together, and to revitalize the relationship.
