Keep the flame burning

By Dr Bill Maier

It is not easy to keep the flames of romance burning when your house is looking like a disaster zone but it can be done.

If you cannot remember the last time you and your spouse went on a date, I have one important word for you — “babysitter”. Or is that two words? Whatever it is, make sure you get one… and use them on a weekly basis.

A regular date night is critical to keeping couples in touch.

Or how about a romantic weekend away — and I do not mean to Disneyworld.

Leave the children with a trusted friend or relative and take a short trip to your favourite spot.

If you really want to thrill your wife, try taking gifts or flowers home for no particular reason.

And call during the day to tell her how much you love her.

Romantic times are great but it is the little sparks each day that keep a fire burning hot.
