Any ideas on how to jeep a marriage interesting? According to a Chinese saying "The way to a man's heart is thru his stomach". Any other bright idea?

Food helps sure...but it's not all that interesting. You must learn to look at your partner with fresh eyes. Having been married for a very long time, and still quite fond of my mate, I have found that doing new things together forges new exciting emotional bonds between the two of us. ANYTHING new, whether it is white water rafting or taking a ballroom dance class*together*...things like this can and do rekindle that giddy love feeling you shared when you courted. Fact is, when we are married for a while we begin to feel and think we "know all there is to know" about our partners. That is*never* true. Don't believe that stagnant feeling; throw a rock in that pond and enjoy the ripple effect. Finally, it is my belief that the love two people share morphs in time into a deep bond of friendship, with makinglove as a benefit of course!! The trick, IMO, is to keep a fresh perspective towards your mate and allow yourself to be surprised by his/her actions sometimes. It is refreshing!!

Always kiss your spouse. Always say sorry even though you know it not your fault. Always message him to say "I love You". This will make your spouse more respect to you and love you much more, and lower his/her egoism. Always fulfill your spouse's desire with open heart:) Always give support to him in his carrier. Be a good listener. Always smile to your spouse.

Do things together. It's good to have something to do that you both love. Nomatter how busy you both are, ensure that you have time together or you remind each other how much you love him/her. And talk... and talk and talk, it would really help you know your other half better.
