  • for me it's by spending nice quality time with my DH... and sweet talk one another.. we really just try to do things with and or for eachother that we know is special to us.

  • Yep.. I agree with Lynnsae. If you are constantly thinking in the back of your mind about what would be a nice gesture towards your spouse and then follow through, then he's more likely to feel loving towards you.
    20 years... it works!

  • We joke around a lot. It lightens the mood about everything and makes romance so much more fun.

  • These are some of the ways that we keep romance/passion alive in our 25 year marriage.
    * Make a point to act/treat each other in a manner that our love/passion/desire for each other is shown everyday.
    * Keeping our interpersonal relationship a priority. Life has a way of stepping in and getting between a couple, if they allow it to. We do our utmost best to keep life in perspective and keep it from coming between us.
    * We make it a point to see and accept the love/romance/passion/desire that exist even in the simplest of daily acts. Many acts between a husband/wife are filled with love and romance, it just takes seeing,understanding and accepting the intentions behind those acts. The simple act of bringing someone a cup of coffee can be filled with romance/passion, it's all in how it's done & how it's interpreted.
    *Understanding that our marriage is as passionate/romantic as we want it to be. We and we alone control that..
