There are a lot of people who think that monogamous relationships don’t always go hand-in-hand. People often complain that couples who are in monogamous relationships become bored of each other and the sexual satisfactions drops in such relationships. Well, that’s true to some extent, but that doesn’t mean that we should blame monogamy for it. Sexual satisfaction and emotional intimacy in monogamous relationships can be a highly rewarding and fulfilling if you take some time to work on yourself and your relationship. You only need to do something different, and with the right attitude and intentions, you can make your monogamous relationship hot again!
Here are three tips on how to bring back the spark in your marriage or monogamous relationship. If you follow these ways, you can be sure that it will make your long and passionate relationship into an enjoyable experience:
- Leave your comfort zone often
Your parents and their parents never dared to step out of their comfort zones. Well, that was a different time then. It’s different now. So, dare to get yourself out of your comfort zone. Inspire your partner to do the same, too. Take a chance; do something different that you never thought you would do, reveal something about yourself, and do something out of the ordinary with your spouse. Be a maverick. Try becoming more comfortable with doing things that make you uncomfortable. You already know that all the successes and the achievements you had in other areas of your life would not have happened if didn’t take any risks in accomplishing them.
- Compliment your significant other often and develop a habit of seeing the best in your partner
One of the big reasons the passion and the excitement in the relationship declines are that partners don’t tend to compliment and appreciate each other for all the things they have done in the relationship. This is mainly noticeable in couples who have been in a committed relationship or marriage for a while. If this keeps going on for sometimes, the communication between the partners break down, and anger, frustration, disappointment, and resentment in the relationships set in. Some people eventually cheat on his or her spouse, and ultimately the relationship ends. Relationships are all about bringing out the best in people. So, if you want to have passionate and long-lasting monogamous relationship, find ways to like your partner. Accept your partner’s flaws and celebrate and compliment his or her strengths.
- Reconsider your mindset about sex
When you are in a committed relationship, it’s okay to have hang-ups or holdbacks. It’s not always important or necessary to hold onto your integrity. Let’s make it clear; we aren’t telling you to discard your integrity or morals. What we are implying here is don’t do anything that contradicts your deepest principles or morals. Nonetheless, be willing to be more open and expressive about your sexuality more than before. Stretch your mindset about sex a little more and be more fluid in this area. Experiment with your partner regarding how you two can please each other sexually. For example, you can try making love in different positions that you and your partner didn’t attempt before.
