7 Ways to Avoid the 7-Year Itch and Keep Love Alive ...


Heather and I will celebrate our 7th anniversary this November, and although we're thankfully not in need of any ways to avoid the 7-year itch, that's the point where many long time couples become a little disenchanted with their relationships. Whether you're in a long term commitment, such as Heather and I, or you're married to your partner, sometimes the fires turn to embers and the smolder dies down a little with time. This is entirely normal, although it may make you start doubting your relationship. Think about how important your partner is to you, and if you come to the conclusion that you really want to keep the love alive, start employing some foolproof ways to avoid the 7-year itch.

1. Make Time to Make It Work

I've tried to find several really helpful ways to avoid the 7-year itch, but not one of them will work if you don't make time to spend with each other. School, work, kids, individual hobbies, and the tedium of day to day life can all interfere with your relationship, especially if you let all those things eclipse your union. While meeting deadlines, picking up the kids, and studying for exams are all important, so is your relationship. If you've decided you don't want to give up on your partner, make time to see it through.

Remember How to Talk to Each Other
