In The Bedroom With Dr. Laura Berman
Are Happy Marriages a Dream?
When it comes to falling in love, we rarely have a choice in the matter. The very phrase "falling in love" suggests a lack of control, an undeniable, overpowering gravitational pull to the object of our desire. However, falling back in love can require a little more effort and thought. If you and your partner have been distant, disconnected, and downright crabby with each other lately, here are some easy ways to recreate that loving feeling:
Be honest. It's hard to be in love with your spouse if you are withholding secret thoughts and resentments. Honest communication is the cornerstone of intimacy between lovers. Dump your secrets and own up to your relationship truths (whether it is that you are faking orgasms or that you can't stand the way he acts around his friends), and ask him to do the same.
