Happy New Year!

Last month, The New York Times ran an article about the dissipation of passion in long-term relationships. It seems that the clock runs out on passion after two years together. Obviously, this is not a satisfactory stat since we’d like our marriages to go beyond the two-year mark.

 

 

If your resolution for this year (and I’m not a huge believer in resolutions in general) was to reinvigorate your marriage or long-term relationship then check out my latest on HuffPo about reigniting the spark. Here’s a snippet of the advice I offer in my piece:

 

Move: A new space or neighborhood can really shake things up and invigorate your lives together. My husband and I have moved at least six times in the last 14 years for a variety of reasons. In retrospect, these moves have kept our lives from getting stale and predictable. If you can’t afford to move (and who can these days?), a simple, cheap and easy alternative is to redecorate — paint the walls fun colors and move the furniture around. The point is to make some changes in your environment so even the old feels new again.
