Many reasons have been put forth as to why couples want to get a divorce. Surprisingly, one such reason that is commonly being given is that the “spark” or the “romance” is not there anymore.
How to Spark Valentine Romance to Save Marriage
It is not surprising to say the least that many couples end up in “splitsville” because of the loss of romance. Psychologists have said that the period of courtship is infamous for its intense emotions as two people are strongly attracted toward each other.
Also, there is also the reason that the boy and girl both set up a façade of sorts to make them appealing to the other. However, when they finally get married, all pretense falls away as their true personalities come to the surface.
A spouse once thought to be kind and responsible turns out to be a slacker, a nagger, or a huge spender. Some couples actually end up missing those intense feelings that they experienced during their courtship period.
If your marriage is on the verge of getting dashed on the rocks, why not try to rekindle that Valentine spirit? Here are some tips to bring back that spark into your marriage.
How to Rekindle Valentine Romance
First of all, sit down and think about those times when you two were dating. Try to recall the specific moments that brought joy and happiness to the both of you. It can be something as simple as giving flowers or a small present.
Remember the activities that the two of you enjoyed doing. List them all down so you won’t forget.
Next, if you haven’t been giving your spouse even a kind greeting, now would be the time to do so. Give him or her a “Good morning” kiss when you wake up in the morning. Or you can serve them breakfast in bed.
To show them you care, help them with the morning chores. While the wife gets the kids ready for school, you can clean up the dishes yourself. These little acts of thoughtfulness count a lot, and would even surprise your spouse especially if you haven’t been particularly mindful of them in the years of your marriage.
If the two of you are working, you can send each other sweet text messages or you can just call them and give them a nice “Hello” and a little pep talk to help your spouse get through the busy workday. You can also invite them out for lunch or you can even bring them a hot meal in the office.
Make sure that you reserve weekends or a day or two for just the two of you. This is where your list comes in. Spend the day doing all the things you loved when you were still dating.
You can have a romantic dinner at your favorite restaurant. Why not visit the romantic spots where you used to go? You might want to rekindle that spark in your favorite “lover’s lane”.
