Guys, I hear ya. The kids came along and there went making out in the kitchen or anywhere else in the house that didn’t have a lock on the door. It happens. All to often the romance gets pushed to the side so that you can raise your family together. But what about your marriage? Isn’t your marriage worth making time for? If you want to learn how to romance your wife to rekindle what you had before kids were in the picture, you’re going to love these tips.
No, I don’t mean go up and grab her backside while she’s cleaning out the fridge, although if your wife is into that, go ahead. What I mean is to touch the small of her back while you’re waiting in line at the grocery store. Hug her from behind while she’s washing dishes. Wrap your arm around her while you’re watching the same kids’ movie for the fortieth time that week. Make an effort to be intimate.
What happened to being spontaneous? Sure, you can’t do the things you used to, but you can still do something that makes her heart beat a bit faster. For example, while you’re cooking dinner, pull her into your arms and slow dance in the kitchen. Look deep into her eyes and lean in for a slow kiss that promises more. It’s these little things that are going to put the spark back in your marriage.
Knock Out That Honey-Do List
Yeah, I hear ya. That list is a mile long, but how long would it really take? Most items on a honey-do list take just a few minutes of your time. And each one you check off earns you more brownie points with the wife. Women find it extremely sexy when a man fixes something around the house. It’s true. One study has shown that wives feel loved and cared for when you help out and are, therefore, more sexually attracted to their husbands. If you really want to turn her on, wash dishes or clean the toilet without being asked.
Turn on Some Music
It’s hard to feel romantic when cartoons are on in the background. Take out your smartphone or buy an Echo Spot to setup in your kitchen. You can play romantic music when you cook dinner together. Wouldn’t it be nice to hear something other than Rescue Bots or Doc McStuffins blaring on the TV in the background?
Plan Something Special
You may think that you take your wife out for dinner all the time, but how often do you actually plan the event? You know what I mean – something other than, “Hey, I’m hungry. Want to grab something to eat?” If you really want to put the moves on your wife, plan everything. Make reservations, call the babysitter, and surprise her with an evening with no kids and no stress.
Last, but not least, stop waiting for the perfect moment to get the spark back. There is never going to be a perfect moment. Sometimes, you have to just ignore the noise and chaos and grab a few spare moments as they come up. Get up, go find your wife, and pull her into your arms with a kiss that makes her weak in the knees. You’ve waited long enough. It’s time to get your wife back.
Romance is something that many married couples claim they don’t have time for. Look, if you have time to sit through yet another boring parent-teacher conference, you have the time to put the romance back in your marriage. Start making it a priority.
