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

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....

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
