If you’re having marriage difficulties, there is something you can do.
No one ever said marriage would be perfect, and few relationships are. When you’re facing marriage difficulties, there are a few things you can do to preserve your marriage and bring order back to your life. The first thing to do is to be honest with yourself as to what is truly the problem.
One major problem in marriages is if there is a difference in the sexual needs of both partners. One partner may have a high sex drive and want to make love more often than the other. Maybe you feel hurt that you have to shun your partner’s advances, and make them feel you don’t want them sexually. You love your partner, but you just do not want to make love as often as they would like, and it’s starting to become a problem. This causes a rift in many relationships, one that you don’t want to cause. It may be time to expand your horizons and explore your sexuality more.
We often let the stresses of modern life make us feel we can put sex off, or that there are more important things to do.
Nothing could be further from the truth. The intimacy you share with your partner is the core of your relationship and you must do what it takes to save it. If your job or a big project is making you feel stressed, then put it down and take out some time to spend with your significant other, just the two of you. You don’t necessarily have to do something grand, like go to a tropical island.
Even the simplest dates, like walking through a park or doing an activity that you can bond over, go a long way in rebuilding a relationship that’s been mired in domestic drudgery. Once you are relaxed and not thinking about the next deadline or your bosses face on Monday morning, you’ll find being intimate with your partner much more natural.
Sometimes intimacy is not the problem in a marriage. Maybe you feel like you and your partner are reliving the same day over and over again.
Routines are good, but too much can lead to boredom and stagnation, and that’s not what endeared you to your partner in the first place. It’s time to spice it up, and not just in the bedroom. In these cases you’ll have to do something very much out the ordinary. Some couples go to exotic locales while others take up new hobbies that they can enjoy together.
Try and do something that involves meeting other couples, or dressing up and going someplace elegant.
Some couples take up ballroom dancing, which is a romantic activity where you can dress up, go on an adventure, and break up your routine. If you are outdoorsy, then visiting a scenic spot and going happy can be a romantic trip and rekindle your relationship. Anything that gets you out of the house and away from the daily grind.
