Looking for a way to put some spark back in your relationship?
1. Don't keep the bathroom door open
“One thing we don’t do in front of each other is keep the bathroom door open; I know loads of couples who go to the toilet in front of each other. It is difficult having one bathroom between five people, but it’s not attractive and isn’t going to add anything to the relationship. You can have a super close relationship without seeing absolutely everything!” —Hannah and Patrick Canavan, together for ten years and married for seven.
2. Don't curse like a sailor
“Casually cursing is both unattractive and unnecessary, and takes away from the shock value that a sudden F-bomb is supposed to bring. Too much cursing renders the sudden use of these words meaningless. And when done excessively, cursing makes you appear unintelligent.” —Jessica and Brent Herndon, married for two years.
3. Don't neglect the little things
“Our tip for keeping the mystery alive after all these years is to surprise your partner with new and fun adventures (like our surprise trips). And on a more daily basis, chocolate and candy always work!” —Roshni Agarwal & Jeff Allen, together for 14 years and married for four.
