Warning: If you don’t keep things interesting after the honeymoon, your lady might just join the Bored Wives Club. Yes, it exists. Here, why wives get bored and what you can do to add some spice to your life.
Go to work, hit the gym, watch the game. If your life is in serious rerun mode, chances are you don’t have much to talk about with your wife. Try a new hobby. Find a new job. Keep your life interesting and you’ll keep her interest.
You’re Really Boring
You have pleasing her down to a fine, 15-minute art, but are you missing the je-ne-sais-quoi? A well-rehearsed routine has its benefits, but passion and unpredictability are intrinsically linked.
It’s been said that having a good marriage is like running a business; it’s true that managing the mortgage, renovations and children requires organization, planning and restraint. Still, don’t be too responsible: Your marriage is not a business. This winter, say yes to the ski weekend.
Saturday night may be date night, but if it’s always the same-old, same-old, it’s time to get creative. Next Saturday night, tell her nothing about your plans, and shock her with something new and outrageously fun.
Back when you were wooing her, you dressed sharp and actually did sit-ups. Now you’ve decided to stock your wardrobe with pajama pants and your fridge with beer, just as your metabolism basically slows to a crawl. Throw on a fresh shirt and take her out for an expensive martini.
