Your spouse may have told you about something that recently has taken place only to find out that you haven’t truly heard them. If you want to make sure that you have the best relationship possible you will need to set aside some of the things you do on a daily basis to listen to your loved one and generally be interested in what they’re talking about.
Don’t Forget Date Night

You need to prioritize and pick one day each week where you can have a quiet dinner together, go for a stroll and generally catch up. Once you have set aside time for the two of you, you’ll be better able to prepare a plan for quality time.
Prepare A Quality Evening
As was mentioned, it’s a good idea to get back in touch with the initial flame the two of you had before you attempt to rekindle it. Ideally, you’ll want to spend some time deciding what a hot, romantic evening will entail. If you can’t pick just one option then each of you decide and have a compromise.
Look At Your Wardrobe

If it’s hard for you to get excited about the same tired clothing you’ve been wearing for the past year, likewise it’s probably difficult for your partner to get excited. You don’t have to break the bank but a couple of new items can go a long way into spicing up your love life.

Don’t Forget To Compliment

These are things you don’t want to forget to do because it will really help your loved one to feel better. But that’s not the only reason you want to make sure to do this, you will also be reminded of the reasons you fell in love with them in the first place. The more positive you can bring into the relationship the better chance you’ll have of keeping the positive in the relationship. This is the essential ingredient to keeping a marriage fresh and lasting.
