Rekindling the Romance: 5 Ways to Feel Like Newlyweds Again

No matter how hard you and your partner try to maintain the spark in your marriage, life seems to always get in the way. Kids, work, and household chores gobble up almost every ounce of your time and energy on a daily basis. To bring back the romance that you once had for each other and feel like newlyweds once again, here are some little things you can do.


  1. Go On Dates

Date each other, but not just any ordinary date. Make an effort to make a reservation, send a text message asking him/her to go on a date with you, and get a baby sitter to take care of the kids. Date your sweetheart like the first time you went out, and we’ll guarantee you’ll get to date him/her for the rest of your life.

  1. Decide to Grow

Discover new things to do and experience awe all over again. Ask your other half to do these new experiences with you one day; or do first-time experiences together every once in a while. The same level of endorphins that you once had when you first met will come kicking in to your relationship when you do new things together.


  1. Do One Thoughtful Thing for Each Other Every Day

It might be taking out the trash, doing the laundry, or just simply listening to how his/her day went. It does not have to be complicated or anything that involves flowers and candlelit dinner. This way, your spouse will feel how important he/she is to you and that you’re still thinking about his/her welfare.

  1. Take a Vacation

Even if it’s just to a resort in your neighbourhood, taking a break together from all the stress of life brings so much rekindling to your relationship. Plan at least one short romantic vacation every year and just let it be your little honeymoon.

  1. Remember Why You Love the Person

Take a moment right now to remember why you fell in love and still are very in love with your spouse. Do this every day and you will feel forever grateful of the love you shared with your partner. Do remind him/her of these reasons by telling him/her things like “I love you because…” And of course, don’t forget to end with a sweet kiss.

If you do these things from now on, you’re sure to rekindle the spark you once had. Remember that the honeymoon stage doesn’t have to end when you have the kids. Keep the fire burning and forever feel like newlyweds with these little actions of love.
