Too often, romance gets ignored when the children arrive: Too tired, too busy, no privacy.
That’s a recipe for disaster because without romance, and lots of physical affection, the love usually dies.
To keep your relationship loving and strong, you need to make romance and physical affection a priority. “Not in front of the kids,” you may say. But why not model for your children what a healthy relationship looks like? That’s a gift that will serve them their entire lives.
Take this test and see what needs to be worked on. I recommend you each take the test, compare your answers, then work together to insure that you your love and fulfillment grows.
Directions: Answer the following 10 questions by filling in the answer most consistent with your point of view. At the end, total up your score.
9 – 7 = definitely true
6 – 4 = moderately true
3 – 1 = not at all true
70 – 90
The higher you score, the more solid is your love and your relationship.What a beautiful gift for your children.
40 – 60
If you score in the mid-range, you would do well to make romance and physical affection more of a priority so your love stays alive and your relationship vibrant.
0 – 30
If you score in this range, you are too focused on the kids and have put the relationship on the back burner or the love you once had is weak. If you want to save your marriage, keep your family intact, and be a model of a loving relationship for your children, simply do more of the things listed above.
One of the benefits in taking a test like this is that you become aware of things you might not have noticed before. You can’t really select things to improve if you aren’t aware of what you’d like to change. Now, hopefully, you do.
