You and your partner should sit down and commit to carving out some "couples time" throughout the week. Plan on doing these three things:
- Set a weekly date night. Get the grandparents to take the kids or join a babysitting pool with friends. Set your date night in stone so you won't skip it!
- Set a weekly sex date. This date has to be at least once a week, and mix up the time and place. Your sex date can coincide with date night.
- Set aside special time. Carve out two 10- to15-minute blocks of time during the work week to cuddle, hang out and relax together, somewhere other than in font of the TV.
