I need advice on how I can spice up my marriage. My dh and I are not as in love as before we are married. We got married not too long ago, but we do have 2 kids under 2. What do you guys do to keep the spice in the marriage. I want to help it, but i don't know what i can do to help. Its depressing. Advice to help save it.

Try having a romantic dinner once the kids are already in bed. Or just cuddling together and watching a movie.

I personally think one of the best things you can do for any marriage is have a date night.  Once a week is great but if you can only manage every other week or even once a month that is better than none.  And yes I mean DATE.  Hire a babysitter or trade sitter services with a friend.  Get dressed up, put on make-up and perfume.  Go on a DATE.  It does not have to be something expensive just something for just the two of you.  This gives you time to reconnect with each other and see each other as male and female rather than as mom and dad.  We try to not talk about the kids on date night.  It is not always easy and sometimes that rule is broken but we really try to just focus on each other.  If you can't arrange to go out on a date, put the kids to bed early one night, still get dressed up and fixed up, eat a nice dinner together (after the kids are in bed), watch a movie together or play a game together.  Again try not to be mom and dad.  You will be surprised at what a difference this small thing can make in your relationship.
