Best ways to mend your love life

There are many new ways to revive your relationship and enjoy the close bonding and fondness of each other that you had in the initial years of your relationship.

Try new activities

Stave off the blahs by trying new and exhilarating activities together and doing so can enhance relationship satisfaction.

Top things to learn from traditional marriage

Marriage is a traditional institution that has been for years. People have immense faith in it and it marks as an aspect of social civilization. There are many vital things that people can learn for marriage.

Stop blaming

Next time you argue with your partner, drop the shaming, blaming, needing to be right, and really listen without interrupting. Then communicate how you feel, using “I” statements. It’s not your partner’s job to read your mind, guess what you’re thinking, or put words into your mouth. These are huge obstacles to open, honest communication and will guarantee resentment, anger, and frustration in the relationship.

Do adjust

Never begin a sentence with the word ‘you’. Instead start with the word “I” and then share your feelings instead of your thoughts...

Top habits of older couples

We all know couples who’ve been married for 30, 40, 50 years or more and who seem as genuinely happy as they were when they were newlyweds.

They keep up with the changes. Lillian Hellman once said, “People change and forget to tell each other.” When it comes to marriage, that can be risky. The most successful couples really take note of each other’s changes. They do not assume their partner is the same person he or she was 20 years ago, even if there are many similarities. What’s more, they take the time to learn their partner’s goals, dreams and future plans. By keeping in touch with who their partner is at this moment and looking ahead to who he might become, they secure a truly intimate relationship.

They know how to fight fairly. It’s not that happy couples never argue...

Best tips to improve love life

Most of us can remember the hot — and frequent — spicy moments when the romance was new with our partner. But eventually the fire of a good love life may die down. Over time, the sexy nightie languishes hidden in the sock drawer, the massage oil gathers dust next to the athlete’s foot powder in the medicine cabinet, and you and your partner have what feels like a humdrum sexual life.

So what is the secret to a better love life that lasts? We asked for some suggestions from two experts on sexuality — Michael Castleman, author of Great Sex: A Man’s Guide to the Secret Principles of Total-Body Sex, and Louanne Cole Weston, PhD, a board certified sex therapist and resident expert for WebMD’s “Sex Matters®” message boards.
