How to Fall In Love Over and Over Again With the Same Person
A lasting marriage requires falling in love over and over again … with the same person.
It’s no secret that marriages can sometimes lose their spark. The initial infatuation fades and day-to-day life starts to set in. But just because the fire isn’t burning as brightly as it was, in the beginning, doesn’t mean your marriage is doomed—far from it.
A lasting marriage requires work, to keep building the connection, but it is more than possible to fall in love with your spouse over and over again. Here’s how:
1. Communicate openly and honestly
One of the most important things in any relationship is communication. If you’re not communicating openly and honestly with your spouse, it’s impossible to maintain a healthy, lasting relationship. Talk about your hopes, your dreams, your fears, your needs—anything and everything. The more you communicate, the closer you’ll become.
2. Show appreciation for one another
It’s easy to take our spouse for granted, especially if we’ve been married for a long time. But it’s important to remember that we need to show our appreciation for one another on a regular basis. Whether it’s saying “thank you” for the little things or going out of our way to do something nice, taking the time to show our appreciation will go a long way in keeping the spark alive in our marriage.
3. Be supportive of one another
A good marriage is built on a foundation of support. When our spouses feel like we have their back, they’re more likely to reciprocate that support. Whether it’s being there for them when they need us or simply lending an ear when they want to vent, offering our support is an essential part of falling in love with our spouse all over again.
4. Be affectionate with one another
Physical touch is important in any relationship, but it’s especially important in marriage. Showing physical affection—hugs, kisses, cuddles—can help to increase intimacy and closeness. And when we feel close to our spouse, we’re more likely to fall in love with them all over again.
Falling in love is one of the best feelings in the world—but it doesn’t always last forever. If you want to maintain a happy, lasting marriage, you need to be willing to fall in love with your spouse over and over again. By communicating openly and honestly, showing appreciation for one another, being supportive of one another, and being affectionate with one another, you can keep the spark alive in your marriage for years to come.
