10 Ways to Keep the Romance Alive AFTER Kids – Dating Divas

Romance – I recently read the blog post below, and just had to share… because I know we all want to keep the romance alive


Think of all the couples you know that have kids.  Now think of that couple that is still madly in love!  The ones that still act like newlyweds even though they have several little ones in tow. What are they doing differently?  What’s their secret?  Well, I asked several of them to find out – and these are the 10 things that kept coming up.

1.  Make Date Night a Priority– You had to see this one coming.  I mean, we are The Dating Divas – it’s the whole reason why we started this blog.  The truth is – dating each other is what made you fall in love in the first place.  So it makes sense that you should keepdating to stay in love.  If you don’t want the fire to die out – you gotta keep blowing on the flames.  Right?  It doesn’t have to be an elaborate, over-the-top date. Even if it’s just talking & laughing over a shared sandwich or candy bar…. in whispered tones so the baby stays asleep!  Just set aside time each week for just the two of you to reconnect.  {Family nights are great, but they don’t count as date night!}  You need time to be husband and wife instead of mom and dad…

9.  Make Love to Stay in Love It’s totally true – making love is one of the best ways to stay in love.  It’s about a lot more than just sex.  Intimacy is like the glue in a marriage.  Besides being FUN and creating a stronger marital connection and bond, it also has some pretty nice benefits too! Ready to hear ’em?  Here we go — regular sex has also beenscientifically proven to help you:  weigh less, look younger, have less wrinkles, have less stress, gain more confidence, AND have less headaches.  And those are just my favorite benefits!  I mean come on – why would you NOT want those?   I’d be interested just for the beauty benefits alone.

Yes, it can get a little trickier after the kids come.  Maybe you’re always tired and exhausted – or over-touched from having kids climbing on you all day.  But intimacy is a vital part of your marriage, and it’s worth any time and effort that it takes to improve it.  If you’re struggling in this area, communicate with your spouse and let him know that you want to work on it together.  Maybe that means having him watch the kids while you take a nap so you’re not so tired or having him give you a massage using nice oils to relax.  Or maybe it means getting your hormones checked.  Whatever it is – make it important to you.  Because it’s important to your marriage.
