When you have been married a long time it is easy to let life get in the way of the romance in your relationship. Kids come along, work gets busy but there is no need to allow your marriage to get boring. You love each other as much now as you did when you were young but you worry that things will go stale or they feel a little off. Snap out of it with these romantic ideas to rekindle your love. Keep the love alive for many years to come with these easy tips:

Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend

This one seems obvious, but it much more about the thought than you think. All women love jewelry so if you have a big wedding anniversary coming up why not give her the gift of an eternity ring? The thought of you taking the time to find one she will love, taking the effort to find time in your day to focus on it, it shows a lot of love. An eternity ring is a romantic gesture that will show your eternal love for your wife and will show you really put thought into spoiling her. You could even get your own wedding band to match hers.

Take things to the next level by renewing your wedding vows in a low key ceremony with your close family and friends. Keep it a surprise and take your other half back to the place where you proposed all those years ago and re-propose with the eternity ring. What could be more romantic?

A Way to a Man’s Heart is Through His Stomach

Get the top single-serve coffee maker and brew him a perfect cup of coffee whenever you can.

They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach so make sure to feed him well to keep him happy. Cook a special meal once a week and sit down together at the kitchen table rather than eating off your laps. You should know his favourite meal by now and a good beer won’t go amiss.

If you are not a great cook then you could always sign up for some cooking classes. It’s not about becoming a master cordon bleu chef but it is the effort that counts.

You Look Beautiful to Me

Paying compliments although subtle won’t go unnoticed. Everyone likes to feel flattered so tell your partner they look good or their new hair cut suits them to make them feel better about themselves. Plus it’s nice to know that you still fancy them after all these years.

Would You Like to go on a Date?

Do you rarely go out for meals together and spend your weekends doing jobs around the house or perhaps doing a food shop? Well inject some excitement into your lifestyles by dating again. No, we don’t mean start dating other people – woo each other again.

A weekly date night such as a walk and picnic in the park or a nice meal out or coffee in a café won’t cost much money or take up your time. It will however give you some important time alone to reconnect and ask each other how your weeks have gone.

Be Happy in Yourself

And finally, you can’t expect to be happy in your marriage if you are not happy in yourself. Follow your passions and make your personal dreams come true and then you can put 110% into your marriage. After all your partner won’t be happy if you are a grumpy guts.

Have you been married for many years now and remain just as loved up with your partner as you were when you first met? Then share your wisdom! We’d love to hear your story.
