You were 25 years old when you met the love of your life and you married
soon after as a statement of your love. Every minute was a taste of heaven
when you two were together, the honeymoon phase of your marriage even
lasted a few years. Now twenty years down the road, you are older, life
is different, people change, and you think it’s time for a divorce.
What if it was possible to rekindle the fiery passion and love you once
felt for your spouse? Often older couples think that the newlyweds are
in for a treat when they realize the realities of marriage, but what if
they are the ones who have it figured out? Perhaps enjoying the youthful
passion is how they keep their love for each other at a high priority.
Newlyweds may just have the best advice for those older couples that what
to relive their glory days of marriage. Consider little things such is
the morning when life is seemingly horrible, great each other with kindness
Greeting one another with a hug and a kiss, and actually meaning it can
go a long way. The idea of showing compassion and care on a consistent
basis is what stands out for these new couples, and it makes the world
of a difference. Another helpful hint is cultivating thankfulness for
your spouse. Consider yourself to be the luckiest person because you are
with them, think through the different ways that they are unique and special
to you and rehearse being thankful for them. Don’t dwell on the
negative qualities, but cultivate a grateful spirit for the fact that
you are married to this person! Marriage is a step that two people take
to show their commitment and love for each other. Remember what you felt
the day you said I do, and seek to bring that back to the marriage today.
Giving up isn’t the only option, take some time to try and rekindle
your youth passion before choosing the divorce as the final step.
