There are two types of married couples. There are
the ones who are married but their marriage is all about their children and
then you have those married couples who are still madly in love with each other
even though they have children. It makes you wonder, doesn’t it? It makes you
wonder how is that couple is still able to have so much love and affection
towards each other when you and your spouse are too tired to even hold hands.
So what are they doing so different than you?
It’s called effort and that effort comes from both ends. Both you and your
spouse have to want to bring the romance back in the relationship… it can’t
just be onesided. Now, that’s not to say that you have to neglect showing your
children affection to be able to give some to your spouse, you both just have
to make that effort to set aside time for yourselves just as much as you do for
If your marriage has hit a slump and you and your
spouse need a little TLC, take a look at the ways that you can keep the romance
going in your marriage.
When it comes to
bringing the romance back into your marriage, the number one culprit that made
the romance leave in the first place is your children, the majority of the

once you hire a nanny you become a household employer. You have
capabilities to hire them for a few hours while some nannies offer overnight
services. So, to get some of that alone time and your parents, friends, or
in-laws can’t watch them, consider hiring a nanny… your marriage will thank you
for it later.

the perfect time to bring romance back into the relationship… also, the perfect
occasion to hire a nanny so that the two of you can enjoy a little getaway
together. Trips out of town are just one of the many ways your life changes after having children.
Before kids, you could
just up and leave whenever you felt like it without worrying about finding
someone to watch the kids but in having kids, there are major life changes you
have to make but that doesn’t mean that t has to kill the romance in your
