Love Happens #9 – “It’s our little secret”

“What’s the secret to your loving relationship?” “It wouldn’t be a secret if I told you!!!”

“What’s the secret to your loving relationship?”
“It wouldn’t be a secret if I told you!!!”

Married with children for years now, this couple playfully rejected sharing their secret recipe to a loving relationship. But it isn’t difficult to guess the key ingredients to the broth – effort, patience, compassion, selflessness and commitment.

It’s not easy being together with someone, starting a family and building a life together. But they did it and so have many other couples. It sure is difficult to keep that passion burning after being together for years. But with a little conscious effort by both parties, a long-term relationship can enjoy it’s puppy-love years all over again

This Christmas season, spend time with family but not forget that your spouse and you deserve some romantic time alone too. You don’t have to go for a candle-lit dinner, sip red wine and light candles for romance. A simple day out at a memorable restaurant (e.g. where you had your first date, where the proposal was, etc.) will be nice. Get your spouse a nice gift or a bouquet of flowers, couple that with a hand-written card, and do include a heartfelt message to thank him/her for their love, care and guidance all these years. (: remember, no one outgrows romance. What may seem mushy and cheesy, can actually be heartfelt and sincere. Keep that passion burning and re-light that burning desire if it seemed to be fading after all these years.

Stay loving!

With Christmas Love,
