I've been married for a few months and have run into somewhat of a dilemma. My wife told me that we have "lost the romance." The problem, in my opinion, is that we are both incredibly busy. I work full time during the day and then I am studying for the FE (a general test for engineers to begin the process of becoming a professional engineer). My wife is a full time student. Does anyone have some ideas as to how I can keep the romance alive when it seems like we only get to see each other on the weekends? I want her to know how much I care for her but the time I spend working and studying to provide financially for her doesn't always relay the love that I have for her. Suggestions?
Thank you for your advice.
Then again, I've been wrong before.
