How To Rekindle the Passion in Your Marriage
An active sex life can lead to more than a good time. Couples with regular sex tend to experience better immune systems, improved bladder control, lower blood pressure, and more restful sleep.
Experiencing passion in your marriage is good for your health!
Likewise, if your marriage has no passion, you might feel less than your best. It’s not too late to rekindle your connection and experience the physical and mental health benefits of regular intercourse.
We’ve created this guide to share quick marriage tips that can help you improve your relationships. Learn how to kindle passionate relationships and say farewell to your sexless marriage.
Rekindle Passion in Your Marriage
The 2015 New York Times article “The 36 Questions That Lead to Love” took the world by storm. Couples could no longer ignore the impact of vulnerability on the quality of their relationships. Every healthy sexual relationship begins with closeness and emotional intimacy.
Have a Conversation
When was the last time you talked about something other than chores, bills, or the kids? When you get wrapped up in the minutiae of life, it’s easy to assume things about your partner. We’re all dynamic individuals with rapidly changing needs, concerns, and desires.
The first step toward intimacy is communicating your needs. It’s easy to fall into a pattern in which one partner is critical, and the other becomes defensive. Instead, focus on expressing positive needs, allowing you to request without opening yourself up to criticism.
In other words, consider using “I” statements. Express how you feel and what you need. Make room for your partner to do the same.
Did you know that physical touch releases oxytocin, which creates feelings of pleasure and can lead to arousal? Even simple touch, such as hand-holding, can make a difference. Go out of your way to increase the amount of time you spend kissing, hugging, and sharing pleasurable physicality.
There is a reason we often consider a shoulder rub to be a form of foreplay. Every positive interaction releases those helpful chemicals, so nearly any physical interaction can lead to romantic feelings.
All behavior is communication, and physical touch is just another form of vulnerability in a relationship. You have to be the one to initiate it. Let the bonding hormones do the rest of the work.
