DATING YOUR MATE

FOCUS ON THE FAMILY

Many marriages following the honeymoon lose the wind in their romantic sails and wallow in the doldrums for months and even years.

 

Well, marriages that were once exciting and loving can also get caught in the romantic doldrums, causing a slow and painful death to the relationship.

 

Mr Doug Fields wrote in his book Creative Romance: “Dating and romancing your spouse can change those patterns, and can be a lot of fun. There’s no quick fix to a sour marriage, of course, but lay aside the excuses and begin to date your sweetheart again.”

 

Allow new breezes to fill the sails of your relationship.

 

It will take a conscious effort, but be creative. How about breakfast in bed? A kiss in the rain? Or perhaps re-reading those old love letters?

 

A honeymoon need not be a one-time experience.
