When it comes to ways to save marriage, reviving the romance has to be one of the most fun things you can do. But how do you get started if you’ve been in a rut, or if you’re in a rough patch?
Here are ten ideas to get you started on the romance (and a couple to help set the stage for romance, too), courtesy of BlessedMommy.
Ways to save marriage and stir up romance
TALK ABOUT THE FUTURE
The future isn’t as far away as it seems sometimes. Talk about where you’d like to be when you’re married 50 years, and work on making those dreams happen.
GIVE HIM THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT
Don’t jump to conclusions if your husband has said or done something questionable. Give him the chance to explain before you pass judgement.
LET HIM BE THE MAN OF THE HOUSE
Although this is growing increasingly unpopular, it does still work. Just because your husband is in charge of the household doesn’t mean that you can’t share your opinions, it just means he’s captain of the team.
SAY, “I’M SORRY”
Although you may not want to admit it, there will be times when you’re in the wrong. Maybe you’ve said something hurtful or done something insensitive. Never have too much pride to tell him you’re sorry.
KEEP YOUR PROMISES
If you told your husband you’d do something, make sure that you follow through.
RUB HIS FEET
Steer him to the recliner and pull off his shoes. Rub his feet for at least 20 minutes. It has been told that this may even improve his health!
MAKE YOUR BEDROOM A LOVER’S PARADISE
Turn your ordinary bedroom into any lover’s dream without a lot of expense. Remove clutter and anything that doesn’t belong, and replace it with scented candles and fresh flowers. Hang pretty curtains and find some comfy bedding. Place mirrors to reflect candlelight, and misting fountains for a romantic effect.
WRITE A NOTE ON THE STEAMED-UP BATHROOM MIRROR
While your husband is showering, sneak in and write, “I love you” on the steamed-up bathroom mirror. This will steam him up as well, especially if you seal it with your lip prints!
PUT LOVE IN HIS SUDS
I’m talking about a bar of soap! Scratch “I love you” into his soap so he’ll find it the next time he showers. (You may not want to seal this note with your lip prints, though).
GIVE HIM A MASSAGE
Go buy some sweet smelling oils and turn your bedroom into a spa! Give your husband a full body massage and work out those aching muscles.
These ten ways to save marriage are sure to get you started with the romance. What a creative idea to write on the steamed-up mirror, eh? And just thinking about the foot massage makes me want one, too! Do you have other ideas? I’d love to hear them!
