Fix Your Sexless Marriage – Rekindling the Romance in Your Relationship
This may seem like the furthest thing from your mind right now but with a few simple steps, you can rekindle the romance in your relationship and fix your sexless marriage. These steps have more to do with how you two interact than candy, flowers and sexy lingerie. Before getting to all of those things, you need to build some basic emotional bonds between the two of you.
One of the first keys in fixing a sexless marriage is to build trust between you and your spouse. You can’t truly be intimate or even romantic with a person if you don’t trust them. If you’ve had an experience in the past with your spouse that has caused you not to trust him or her, you’ve got to take steps to rebuilding that trust.
In addition to trust, respect is also an important part of the equation. You can show respect for your partner by keeping your private matters private. If you make a habit of talking about your spouse in a negative way to your friends or family members, you have to put a stop to it. Even if you hide this kind of stuff from your spouse, the attitude comes through in your interactions. When you start showing respect by keeping your thoughts to yourself, your spouse will begin to take notice.
Finally, you need to listen to your spouse. Listening is an ultimate sign of respect and trust. Even if you aren’t at the point yet where you can sit down and talk about your lack of intimacy, you can listen during your day to day activities. Take interest in your spouse’s day and he or she will begin to open up more.
Of course, this just scratches the surface of what you can do to rekindle the romance in your relationship. Some couples may need more in depth help in moving past infidelity, repairing trust or just heating up the relationship.
