Gentlemen,

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.

I just covered this very extensively in an article and podcast. Read and Listen. If you have questions please just email me at ritterbenjamin@gmail.com. I would love to help. There's also an incredible Ted talk on this....if you care about your relationship listen to everything all the way through. Links below

Keeping the flame alive: Sustaining sexual attraction - http://www.examiner.com/article/keeping-the-flame-alive-sustaining-...

How many times have you heard that sex decreases or even stops in long term relationships? This running joke is actually a sad fact. Many people do not realize that sexual intimacy is not just part of, but an essential component of a fulfilling relationship....

Suave Lover: Sustaining the sexual excitement - http://suavelover.com/podcast/?name=2013-12-30_suavelover_podcast_0...

There's probably nothing more exciting than intense sexual attraction in a romantic relationship--and nothing worse than to see that sexual attraction fizzle. Why does this happen? In this episode you will learn:

  • What creates sexual tension
  • Why the "brother-sister" relationships come about
  • How to sustain sexual attraction in a long term relationship
  • How to get your emotional and sexual needs met without desexualizing your partner

Due to the types of jobs available, I am currently back in school pursuing a degree in Biomedical Sciences. I, like most, extremely enjoy reading and bettering…See More
