Cupid’s Advice:

After being married for several years, you may find yourselves getting into a rut.  Cupid has some advice to help make sure the honeymoon doesn’t end:

1. It’s date night: Sometimes a marriage can feel as if it’s becoming all work and no play.  Give yourselves a night out, without the kids, to have fun.  Take the time to catch up on the things which get lost in everyday craziness.

2. Take on a new interest together: Talk about doing something the two of you have always wanted to try, but never had the time to do.  Sign up for cooking lessons or take up a new sport.  It’s never too late to explore something new together.

3. OMG… I luv u: Technology now and days makes it easier than ever to stay in touch.  A quick “hello” or “I love you” via text will let your spouse know you’re thinking of him or her throughout the day.
