The Spark Alive

Discussion in 'Marriage and Relationships' started by SueJLove, Feb 9, 2014.

  1. Q: Married Couples, especially "empty nesters," what kinds of things do you do together to strengthen your relationships - to encourage each other, to improve or to enhance communication, to romance each other, to pursue each other (like when you were dating), to grow and to mature together, and to keep your love relationships alive, active, and fulfilling to each other?

    I am not speaking of the "S" word here, though I know this is certainly part of it, but I am speaking of the friendship and companionship (or romantic) aspect of a marriage relationship.

    I think sometimes the older we get, or the longer we have been married, the more we can get into routines or ruts and can lose some of that "spark," so I would be interested to know what you all do now (or did when your spouse was alive) to keep that "spark" (interest, excitement, enjoyment and/or fulfillment) going. Thanks!
