When spouses don't get busy regularly, they can lose physical connection. What's more, "this can turn into longer lovemaking sessions.
Write about your fights. In a study from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, couples who wrote for seven minutes three times a year about previous marital conflicts from a third-party perspective reported greater relationship satisfaction than those who didn't. Researchers believe it's because the writing group was able to glean new insights about the disagreements or better understand their spouses after they'd reflected about them on their own.
Next time you argue with your man, try writing down the details from a neutral standpoint. You might notice something you missed in the heat of the moment. Hug for 2 minutes and kiss for 30 seconds each day. The problem: Those hurried pecks and embraces don't offer the same feel-good benefits longer stretches of physical intimacy do. No need to set a timer, says Blackham, but do extend your hugs and kisses longer than you normally would; you'll feel a new sense of connection.
Take a walk together. If you're trying to decide how you two should handle your daughter's poor report card, hit the pavement. Not only will the fresh air clear your minds but also "the very act of walking in the same direction can help you two feel as though you're on the same team and want the same result," explains Blackham. Physically heading to one place makes you more likely to be mentally in sync; it's like you're standing together instead of confronting each other.
Match up your boozing levels. Couples who drink together stay together? So a disparity in drinking habits is a better predictor of divorce than the drinking itself, probably because they're less likely to fight about their differences.
That's not to say you both should get wasted nightly if that's what one of you wants to do, but it's not necessarily a bad idea to grab a glass of wine or pop a brewski when your spouse unwinds with a beer. Sit next to each other at restaurant tables. You may be inclined to take a seat across from your partner, but "it's a more aggressive stance," says Blackham. After all, it's how you and a prospective employer sit during an interview. Next time you're out, try grabbing a booth or putting separate chairs at a table side by side.
