Relationship in a rut?

Over time it is easy to get lazy in your relationship, and all of a sudden you barely talk, let alone have meaningful conversations to check in with your partner on a consistent basis. A romantic relationship is the center of the household and is the basis for which children, friends and family can get a realistic glimpse into what a healthy and happy relationship entails. It’s time to get back on track and show them how it’s done.

Here are 10 ways to reignite the spark in your love life.

Would you choose to marry your spouse again?

We all know the fairytale love story. . . two people meet, lock eyes instantly, and are overwhelmed with love at first sight. The courtship is sweet, and he drops down on one knee asking his beautiful sweetheart to spend the rest of their lives together. She buys a dress, he gets a suit, and the two say “I do”, as they walk hand in hand into their shared future as husband and wife.

As life evolves, and perhaps kids join the family dynamic and career talk and financial stresses become more prominent than kisses and spontaneous date nights, we beg the question: If you were faced with the decision to marry your spouse again today, here and now, would you do it?

The Couples' Table

Why you should sit down together at least once a day.

Many of us are tied to such busy schedules, that we find ourselves going days without truly connecting with our partner. Studies show that couples who spend focused time together interacting on a regular basis have a better chance of building a loving, long-term relationship. That’s why I believe it is so important to sit down together at least once a day with no distractions.

Imagine this. . . You and your partner, alone, for 15 minutes (maybe more!), talking, sipping wine, locking eyes, and reminiscing how you met, fell in love, all the while remembering why you’re together. Yes, it can be difficult to carve out that alone time every day, but here is why it is so crucial to your relationship. . .
