Putting magic back into your relationship, especially after starting a family, is difficult

Putting magic back into your relationship, especially after starting a family, is difficult. Marriage alone is a lot of work, and when children are added to the mix, there is additional stress. Before the children, you could prioritize and make decisions quickly and easily, based solely on your schedule and needs. Making decisions that affect the family are more complicated. Each day seems to run in the same cycle leaving you exhausted as you tumble into bed with your equally exhausted partner. Every moment of every day is assigned a task and you feel like you are just along for the ride.

The few minutes a day you see you partner are filled with feeding the family or getting the children ready for bed. If you have started to think about the “good ‘ol days”, when you had meaningful conversations and time to focus on each other, you are ready to take action. Putting magic back into your relationship does not need to include overhauling your schedule to make room for date night. The goal is to show your partner that you have not forgotten about them, and that you love them. This can start with small things you can do each day.

In the morning before leaving home, ask about your partners plan for the day. Is there something interesting or unusual occurring? This will take only a few moments and your partner will appreciate the interest. In the evening, ask about their day. Did it go as expected, or were there complications? Pay attention to the answers and be supportive. Chances are that your partner will reciprocate by asking about your day. This small act of reconnecting with one another is the first step to putting magic back into your relationship. At first, these steps will require effort, but it will get easier.

Taking a few minutes out of each day to focus on each other is another step in prioritizing your relationship. Show your affection by giving them a heart-felt kiss. Hold hands or cuddle when watching television. The physical contact can be soothing and stimulating at the same time. Putting magic back into your relationship can start by simply concentrating on the person you fell in love with. Strong, happy relationships do not just “happen”. They require attention and work. Communicate as a couple, rather than as parents. This can bring back a dimension to your relationship that you have missed.
