A woman’s passion for her husband can diminish after children enter into the picture. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Plan a date night
Pick up the phone and make those restaurant reservations yourself instead of trying to send those mind signals that you want some alone time with him.
Make a special dinner
If going out is just too far-reaching, then make dinner extra special. Feed the kids ahead of time and let them have a movie night while you and your beloved enjoy a candlelit dinner “alone”.
Wear something he likes
I possess articles of clothing that I know my husband would rather see burn in a fire. Since I’m usually home all day, I figure who cares what I’m wearing? But at the very least, I can change into clothes that I know he likes before he gets home from work.
Fix yourself up
I don’t normally wear a lot of makeup, but I can, at least, shower and brush my hair for my husband. In other words, try not to look like that haggard mom, who has been chasing around her kids all day (even though that’s probably true).
Wouldn’t it be great if you can get someone to watch your kids even before your hubby comes home from work? Imagine how quiet the house would be when he walked in! He’ll think he stepped right into the Twilight Zone!
Shorten his to do list
Does your husband have a “Honey, Do” list? Why not take one or two things off his list? My husband typically takes out the garbage, but there’s no rule that I can’t do it either.
Shorten your to do list
If your endless to-do list is getting in the way of spending quality time with your spouse, perhaps it’s time to reassess. Save some of your tasks for another day.
Send him a love note
There are many ways to send messages nowadays that we really have no excuse. Tell him why you love him or how you appreciate something he did or just get flirty.
Recall your love story
A good love story isn’t just found in books and movies. Your own love story is probably way better than the latest chick flick. Spend some time reflecting on this (look through pictures or old love letters if it helps), and you may start swooning again when he walks into the room.
Initiate the intimacy
At the end of a day of cooking, cleaning, running errands, and the kids, the only thing on your mind is probably getting some needed sleep (and hoping your hubby will be just as tired). But you know what will really make him happy, right?? 😉
Do you have anything to add? What do you do to keep the flames of passion burning in your marriage?
