If you feel your marriage just isn't working out anymore, you're not alone. According to the American Psychological Association, between 40 and 50 percent of American couples get a divorce sometime in their lives.
Despite this large number, there is new evidence to support that divorces are declining and have been since 1979. Marriage isn't easy, but it doesn't have to be difficult all the time either. The ruts will come, but they can fade if both partners are dedicated to improvements.
If your marriage is struggling, implement the following four tips into your daily life for a shot at a new kind of love with your spouse.
- Find the balance between personal time and couple time: Doing everything as a couple, together, is good for a small amount of time. It is important though, to remember that you are your own person. Spending too much time together can cause fights, especially over the little things.
- Flirt like you're meeting for the first time: Take it back to when you first met. Or your first few meetings. Nothing may have been sexier than the look you shared or pickup line he used. Send a flirty text mid-day or let him know you're thinking of him to ignite the flame.
- Make your relationship a priority: If your relationship is rocky, take time to fix it. Focus on what is actually wrong and how things can change before it's too late.
- Show affection and appreciation: Give him a back rub or tell him you need one later tonight. Showing affection and appreciation for your partner both in and out of the bedroom can strengthen the relationship and feelings you two may have lost.
