How to dodge the “7 year itch”

Here’s what to do to avoid the feeling of falling out of love with your partner.

Whether it’s seven years or between ten and fifteen years of marriage as new research suggests, there is a point in every married couple’s journey when boredom sets in and the spark of love dims.

Continue to grow individually as a person

There’s nothing more attractive than someone who is focused on improving themselves. Never stop this as your growth is desirable to your partner.

Continue to grow as a couple

Set goals, chart out your vision and work on them together. Surround yourselves with couples who are happy and continue to work on their union.

Remember what drew you to each other

What drew you to your mate? What draws you to them now? Focus on those things while building in other areas as well.

Keep disagreements in perspective

A disagreement in one area should not take over your married life together. A disagreement about one issue doesn’t make your whole relationship a problem.

Enjoy and stimulate each other

Do this physically, emotionally, and intellectually.

Don’t believe the negative hype. Create your own joy and your own odds.
