23 Ways to Keep The Butterflies in Your Marriage

By Ronnie Tyler |

23ButterflyWhen Lamar and I first started dating, just thinking about him made me smile from ear to ear. And honey…when that man walked into the room I had no control over my body. Any effort to hold back my smile was thwarted by how brightly my eyes lit up. The way he said my name made me blush. We touched, we giggled, we flirted with each other and eventually we got married. Let’s face it, I had a serious case of the butterflies for my sweetie.

When we got married, we had an instant blended family with my two kids. Picture a few butterflies floating away as we dealt with blended family challenges. We had two more kids, a mini van car payment, we built a new home and we had two very challenging careers. Picture more butterflies flying away as we dealt with the every day hustle and bustle of life.

Don’t get me wrong, the love that I have for my husband grows stronger each year that we are together. But I don’t want our fun, our passion, and our flirting to fly away. I quickly realized that if I wanted the butterflies to stay…that I (we) would have to do something about it.

Being married does not mean that you have to live a life without butterflies because you can have them with your spouse. Check out 23 ways that will help you keep the butterflies or get them back.

    I recently reconnected with my husband of 41 years via internet after both of us searching for many years. We have two adult children who are thrilled to have both parents in their lives. We live in two different cities but not so far that we can’t connect in short periods of time, two of our Grandchildren graduated recently from high school and we both showed up and in appearance we were a family. This man has grown in so many areas that i am interested in dating him. My problem is I’m not sure if he is the least bit interested in me.He has been seeing someone much younger than us for quite sometime now and with that news I would’ve just backed up but she lives thousands of miles away and they spend only two much out of the year together. He called me today and opened up a little making me aware he is somewhat lonely. I know I’m a little old for this but old folks need help sometime to, so if anyone has some real advice please share it with me.
