From Your Tango

In the beginning of your marriage, you and your husband couldn’t keep your hands off each other. It was wedded bliss and the physical attraction between you two was undeniable. Lately, however, you haven’t been feeling that same spark. You may wonder, does lust inevitably fade away?

In this video, author, relationship coach and YourTango Expert Charly Emery says it’s common for women who have been married for many years to feel this way. It’s easy to get caught up in life’s daily activites, and, as a result, the fire you once felt for each fades.

The solution? “… accept the fact that both of you got caught up in your day-to-day stuff,” says Charly, “and be the one that’s willing to commit to reinvest so that … both of you [get] back on track.”

The saying goes “Fake it till you make it,” but that shouldn’t apply in the bedroom. If you’re not in the mood to get down, but your husband always is, it can create serious tension—and not the good kind—in your relationship.

In this video, Psychologist, Sex Therapist and YourTango Expert Dr. Megan Fleming answers the question: I feel like my husband badgers me for sex all the time. Is it better to give in and fake it, or be honest and wait till I have that luvin’ feeling again?

As Dr. Fleming points out, it sounds as if there are only two options here, but really, there are plenty of ways to solve this issue. She suggests making time in your schedule to turn yourself on, whether that requires thinking about “fantasies, remembering past sexual experiences, anticipating pleasure and how good that feels,” or something else. This way, you’ll be primed and ready for your husband’s constant urges.

Keepin’ It Hot: 5 Ways to Make Married Sex Exciting

Current television programs, magazine articles, movies and music don’t represent marriage very well. The area they do the worst job covering is married sex. In many ways, even though most of the single people I know want to get married, the marriage rate has gone down. Couples who believed that cohabitating would keep their sex hot have been disillusioned and disappointed when they find out that what keeps sex hot is the security of a committed relationship.

Moving in together without a commitment to one another may have made the sex better at first, but once the couple began leaning more on one another and having expectations of one another, the sex dwindled just as it does in a marriage that isn’t working. No matter how perfect you are for one another or how great your marriage is, you will get bored with one another from time to time. It is fascinating to talk with a couple that has been married for twenty years while you try to imagine what they still see in each other.

How can anything be novel or exciting, and how do they beat the boredom?
