Never stop dating each other
I know, a little cliché and probably something you will read a few times on some of the wedding cards you receive. But there is some truth to this. For example, something that I share with couples who may have a few children and feel that their desire and sexual intimacy has fizzled out is to schedule their sexual intimacy. Now this does not mean that at 7:00 p.m. you will robotically have sex, instead this is referring to the idea that when you were first dating and first began to be sexually intimate with your partner, chances are you were scheduling it into your day. You planned what outfit you were going to wear, you decided what perfume/cologne you were going to use, you chose to eat something at dinner that wasn’t going to make you feel sick or bloated, you asked your partner questions that helped you learn something about them, and you made time to have fun together. It was all planned and scheduled in.
So, moving forward, just because you got past the wedding day, doesn’t mean that all this intention to be close to your partner goes out the window. Be intentional with how you spend time with your partner.
