We’ve all heard this term, and I always assumed it meant the desire to be unfaithful. Something I never truly thought would happen to me. In a little over a month my husband and I will be celebrating our 6 year wedding anniversary, and I think that 7 year itch has hit, a good year early.
It’s not a desire to cheat, it’s a desire for more in the relationship I have. More dates, more time alone, more fun, more affection. In short, more romance. Is that too much to expect after 6 years of marriage? Is it not realistic? Is it typical to evolve into roomates with benefits? I don’t buy into this as normal at all, and I really want to work on it.
The question is how do you reconcile this with having kids? Do you and your spouse keep a regular date night? Are there things you do at home to keep things interesting? Things you do in the bedroom?(Or the laundry room, or the kitchen table…) How do you inspire your man to do a little better than cheesy lines, or worse yet, a post on True Dad Confessions?(No, NOT mine, but some of the posts there are enough to scare a girl!) Is there a secret to making your marriage as sizzling hot as an iPhone?
Talk to me ladies!
