5 Ways to Fall In Love with Your Spouse All Over Again


As you may be aware it’s completely normal for a marriage to fall out of that honeymoon phase and return into this regular life of living the motions. With raising kids, holding careers and paying bills it’s no wonder the spark diminishes a little. This is completely normal and it doesn’t have to be the end of your marriage, here are 5 ways to fall in love with your spouse all over again as a means to push forward living life together …


Engage in Meaningful Conversations
There’s nothing that puts that spark out between you like discussing the household chores, responsibilities of life and children. Learn to set aside time each day where you both discuss dreams, desires and goals that you have as individuals and a couple. Putting a priority on engaging in a meaningful conversation with your spouse on a regular schedule will help to spark that love interest as you once had during your honeymoon phase.

Keep Surprises Coming
One thing that cures boredom every time is ensuring that you surprise each other every so often. This cannot be something you do on routine or it doesn’t work to make your spouse fall in love all over again. On occasion do something that makes your spouse jaw dropped, smile or even shed a tear of joy because you took time to surprise them by doing something that matters to them. Learning to do random surprises on occasion will help to reconnect your bond as a married couple.


Practice Saying Positive Things
There’s nothing that ruins the marriage faster than always hearing someone criticize you or put you down for things you mess up. Remember that you both are imperfect human beings and work hard to ensure you are saying positive things to each other on a regular basis. Perhaps you both work to say three positives to each other for a week? This will surely make you fall in love with your spouse all over again in no time!

Re-Enact Favorite Memories
Think about a place you both travelled or something you both did together in the past that helped you bond as a couple. Try to go back to that place or re-enact this favorite memory as a means to spark that little part of your heart that fell for your spouse back then. Learning to be aware of what sparked your connection in the first place and making that happen again is a huge part of falling in love with your spouse all over again.


Cuddle More Often
Not everyone is into cuddling, but perhaps you are someone who’s love language involves affection, if you and your spouse are those sort of people then you must ensure that cuddling happens more often. Few people enjoy a good night sleep when cuddling up together, but try to ensure that first portion of the evening when you lay down is spent snuggled up for a bit so that you spark that deep connection between the two of you. Cuddling can surge that feeling of love between you two and ensure that you fall in love with your spouse all over again.

There are many things you can do to try to fall in love with your spouse all over again, it’s a mere matter of ensuring that you take notice of what allowed you two to bond in the first place. Once you establish what made you two fall in love in the first place, you are quickly able to reconnect by bringing that back into your marriage today!


Let's discuss: Are there other ways can you think of to fall in love all over again?

  1. I think surprises are awesome. And channeling that spark and effort you first have when dating. Flirty texts. Conversations. Dates. Trips!

    1. Surprises are awesome and you're right about doing the things when you first started dating. It's forgetting those things that makes marriages deteriorate.

  2. I love this! I've been married to my husband for a long, long... lloonngg time. While we've never had any major explosions in our marriage, I know there are times when we could wring each other's necks. So falling in love all over again is absolutely key.

    1. Oh we've had major explosions in ours and I used to think that it would be nice to fall in love all over again, but now not so much. :(

  3. Marriage is work. HARD work. And part of that work is remembering who you fell in love with before you had kids and responsibilities and discovered all of those things about your partner that absolutely drive you nuts. Love this!

  7. I really, really, REALLY needed to read this! I am doing the exact opposite of some of these things. I am not trying to be mean to my spouse or sabotage anything - these ruts are easy to fall into without even realizing it!

  27. I wish my husband surprised me more often. He has no idea the impact an unplanned for coffee, gift, or plan would be for me.

    ReplyDelete

  30. Good advice there. My husband and I met and got engaged more than 30 years ago, and every day is still an adventure. Of course, we only got married four years ago, but that's a different story. ;)

    1. Sounds like you really put thought into it before you got married. I wish I could say the same for me.

  31. Have regular one on one time sans kids. This is a big one for us. It doesn't have to be a big date night out. It could be a picnic for two in front of the tv after the kids go to bed, just make sure it's something that is yours and for you both. I love this list!

    1. It's a list I put together because I know what it's like to be ignored and neglected. I'm hoping it'll help others because it will surely help me in my next relationship.
