Restore the Erotic Edge to Your Relationship

Does your partner feel more like a roommate you share bills and children with than a lover and companion? Over the years, it's easy to let things cool down between the two of you without even knowing it. But while monogamy isn't always full of fireworks, you can resist losing the spark entirely.

The easiest way to fuel the charge between you and your partner is to spend less time together. That's right! Couples who spend every minute of the day together and only pursue interests that involve both of them often end up more like brother and sister than soul mates. Time apart will put the excitement back into the moments when you're together. You'll grow as individuals and be able to catch up on each other's details as a couple. Being in a healthy, trusting relationship means feeling comfortable letting your partner leave your side.

Though it may seem difficult for stressed, exhausted parents, you should try to cut down on the number of mundane tasks you do together. Both of you do not need to empty the dishwasher or go shopping for diapers. Try to limit your bathroom time together, especially when getting ready. And close the door when using the bathroom! Putting some privacy back in life's most basic functions will help.

Finally, make a concerted effort to find fun new activities for the two of you. Getting back your erotic edge is easier than you think, if you're willing to make a few changes.
