Relationship Advice - Five Rules for Adding Romance to Your Relationship
By Laurel Barnet

Do you know how romance in marriage tends to take a backseat to juggling daily responsibilities such as jobs, kids, and household chores? You may feel that you are doing goods just to remember to do something for special occasions like Valentine's Day or your anniversary.

Romance is no longer important, right? You can still have a solid marriage without it. However, romance is to a relationship what dessert is to a meal. Both are sweet and satisfying and can turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Here are five rules to jog your memory about how to be romantic:

Romance Rule #1: Repetition Reduces Romance

I know a man who gave his wife perfume one year for Christmas, and she loved it. It was a romantic gift. So every year he gave his wife the same gift. After 15 years, it was a routine and no longer romantic.

Romance Rule #2: True Romance Comes From Relationship

The most romantic gifts are the ones that tell your spouse that you intimately know his or her tastes, wants, and desires. Pay attention to what your spouse talks about and constantly look for romantic ideas.

Romance Rule # 3: Little Things Count

Romance can be as simple as a Hershey's kiss or a coupon for a back rub. Don't forget about the little things.

Romance Rule # 4: Sometimes Romance is Extravagant

Sometimes splurging for your mate lets them know how special they are to you. Spending money to romance your spouse is cheaper than a divorce or paying child support.

Bringing home a single rose can say, "I thought about you today." On the other hand, a bunch of roses says, "I love you a bunch and you are priceless." So don't be afraid to invest in romance; you will receive great interest on that investment.

Romance rule #5: Romance Requires Planning

Don't wait until the last minute to buy a gift or try to think of something romantic to do. It will be obvious that you did not put much thought or effort into the gift.

"Just do it" (Nike Commercial)

Romance is just one way to let your spouse know how much you love and value them. Sometimes it is easy to take him/her for granted and quit expressing your appreciation for them.
