The lack of balance between work and a relationship very often leads to partners drifting away from each other.

Do you remember the last time you did something to make your wife feel special?

All couples who have been together for any reasonable length of time have fights. While it is a good idea to let off some steam now and then, arguments also have the potential to escalate into breaking points.

It is way easier to control a man in love, than a man in lust. After the first few years of marriage, women often find it difficult to keep their men interested in them, as lust wanes away after sometime, and men are inherently wired to lose interest, once they are satisfied.

Intimacy between lovers, no matter how powerful and passionate, has a tendency to fade over time. When having sex with your husband starts to feel boring and more like a chore than a reward, some kind of action must be taken. Over time a dissatisfying sexual relationship can have numerous adverse affects on a marriage.

Those were the days, when your husband had eyes only for you. It made you feel very special and truly loved. But now you find that he makes no bones about the fact that he’s checking out other women.
