Keep it hot!

Just a few days ago, a friend of mine was lamenting about keeping it hot between her and her man and balancing all that with work and kids. It was more like a complaint about monotony of being in a monogamous relationship. It kind of made me sad for a minute but I guess to a certain extent it can be a little tedious for luck of trying to keep the romance alive. She said "We dated for five years and have been married the rest". I have my personal opinions but I wonder what other people think? What has kept people going? What are some of the resources out there? Over the past few months, these websites( love actually and the intimate couple ) have been great resources for me.

Sometimes, some of the suggestions from these helpful tools may seem pretty trivial and even silly but I figure with the amount of effort I put in at work, if I try to put that much into my marriage, I can't go wrong at all :) I hope everyone is having a great week! Blessings!

Your friend's dilemma is one of my fears about marriage - losing that boyfriend/girlfriend heat. I see how easily it happens. Couple gets married, realize they are now responsible for each other's well-being so they spend more time working on their financial security. If kids come into the picture, they spend more time being the world's greatest parents than being the best life partners.

@Mike- I agree with you to an extent. It's the reason why I think young married people need to spend as much time as they can together before the kids come along. I think our society makes having kids the focus of marriage and that kind of defeats the idea of clinging to each other "till death us part". Being life partners takes time and effor on both sides. Wish people understood that :)
