Can love and romance return once lost in a marriage?
Once couple stop loving each other is there any way back.
Absolutely, there is -- many couples feel like they've "fallen out of love" or that the relationship has "gone stagnant." In fact, ask just about anyone who has been with their partner for more than five years, and certainly anyone who has been with them more than ten years. There will be times where the love and romance just isn't there (or can't be readily felt at the time), but with consistent effort from both parties there will be better days. Relationships are work, no two ways about that. Does that mean they all get it back? No, but it does mean there is hope for just about anyone.
"Once a couple (stop loving each other) is there any way back"
The politically correct answer is to say, "Yes if both people are willing to make the effort and get some therapy, "Real love" really never dies...etc
However the truth is "It's easier to maintain a fire than it is to reignite a spark."
Yes you can perform romantic gestures and have sex with someone you don't love. People do it all time.
To love something whether it be chocolate or another person is to "crave" or "desire" it, not being able to imagine your life without it....etc This kind of love you can't "manufacture" or follow some master plan to connect the dots and create MAGIC.
Having said all the above if you still enjoy each other's company, trust one another, and have a lot in common then maybe you can be content without "passion". The most important trait required to have a successful marriage is both people have to want the same thing and agree on how to get it.

I was raised in a family that was always to busy to show affection yet that is all I sought. In my family...

How do you feel about open relationships and open marriages?Personally, I have a big problem with it! I don't think it's appropriate for your spouse or your mate to be with anyone but you. Marriage is supposed to be between two people! Not three people. So what do you think about open marriages?
