Amidst rumors of marital woes, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are proving that they are stronger than ever. The couple of almost 15 years adamantly denies the troubled relationship rumors, which Jada calls “ridiculous.” At the Men in Black III premiere in New York City, Smith told People, “Being there for each other and being present with our kids is the most important thing. I take being a parent very seriously.” Smith went even further in showing love for his wife by saying, “I’m so lucky to have someone like Jada. She’s really an incredible woman, wife and mother.” It sounds like there’s no trouble in paradise here!
How do you keep the spark alive in a long-term relationship?
In long-term relationships, couples often get too comfortable with each other and forget about the spark that brought them together in the first place. Here are some ways to keep that spark lit:
1. Do things together: Do simple things together like helping each other out around the house. A little help can go a long way, and it leaves more room for the two of you to have alone time together.
2. Kick up the romantic gestures: Some think that once you put a ring on it, it’s no longer necessary to impress your partner. Wrong. Spreading rose petals, lighting a few candles and enjoying intimate dinners are all simple ideas that can keep the butterflies fluttering in your stomach even after years of being together.
3. Be spontaneous: In a long-term relationship, you may find yourself settling into a routine, and lets face it, routines can be monotonous. Keep the spark alive by taking a weekend road trip or exploring different restaurants here and there. It’s important to not get stuck in a rut.
