There are few couples that make it to the day where they can say they have been married for 10 complete years. Whether they were happy during these 10 years or not, that doesn’t matter.
Marriage has always been a sacred bond and one that a person must take as not just a responsibility, but as a way to complete him/herself. However, many couples can lose that charm or spark after sometime, and in the latter stages, it becomes more of a necessity than anything else. However, there are always ways to rekindle the spark and bring some lack back into your 10 year marriage.
Talk It Over
One of the things that many long married couples fear is ‘the talk’. At a certain age and with kids, many believe it is best to keep things as they are instead of having any productive discussion. This is a negative approach and only makes it difficult for the couple to find the long lost love again. Sit down with your better half and discuss your concerns and ask them to talk over theirs. This will help in clearing some of the air out and will bring more positivity to your marriage.
Bring Date Nights Back
Thinking about your future, your children’s future, your job, and other things can make you forget that you and your partner need some alone time. We all can get lost in the hustle and bustle of today’s life. But taking a few hours out to watch a movie, go for a nice dinner, or have drinks at your favorite bar can definitely help you get excited about marriage once more. Dress up nicely and tell your kids to play video games while you two share each other’s company in seclusion.
Being married for 10 years is an accomplishment, provided that you and your partner are happily married, not just married!
