I believe that after a couple of years, many married couples take each other for granted. As a result of this, many married couples have monotonous lives. However, I believe that in order to keep long-term marriages new, couples must creative inventive and innovative ways to keep the marriage as good as new. Couples can go on dates twice weekly, being inventinve and spicy in the bedroom, and creative other exciting ways to be together. Monogamy does not have to equal monotony.
Well I guess a forum post does not always have to be posted in the form of a question and with that said you are certainly not in the minority with your opinion on this matter. Many experts (and gossip magazine self-proclaimed experts) agree with you. There is a great deal of media to be found on how to accomplish said objective. I do believe that there is a swing back to marriage maintenence as many of us today are first or second generation products of split/dysfunctional families and our youth as a whole want to see a return to more time-tested marital values. It takes work and too many people just aren't willing to put forth the effort.
That said my hubby and I do our best but unless you count going household shopping without the kids a date, then technically we haven't had one since October of last year! LOL But we get time away from the kids while they are in school and we work together, sometimes grabbing lunch out if we aren't home. I know that doesn't sound so excitimg but the trick with us is that we also do things apart from each other and that not only helps by making us feel whole, it gives us something to talk about.

Should the “emotionally divorced” be counted among “married couples”?The “divorce rate” is around 50%. Presumably this count does NOT include couples that live in separate quarters of the house, “sexless marriages”, and couples who have lived apart for years without either party...

I have done 5 surveys and everyone says that they think 3 is average but then I find out that the real average is twice a month. So if you can answer the question that would be great, not how much you think but how much you are!

How does legalized gay marriage "ruin" or affect a heterosexual one?One of the most common arguments against gay marriage is that legalizing gay marriage will somehow minimize or ruin heterosexual marriages. Admittedly, this is one of the stupidest arguments out there, but it is one...
