I have been married for just 12 years, and I have heard many of my married friends complaining that there is no more sparks in their marriage. Husband and wife take each other for granted, and their common topics of communication are all about their children. Just want to share this JOKE which my friend emailed to me last week. ....LOL.....=)) After reading this joke, I did ponder a while over my marriage life. I realised that I'm not going to let this happen to me. Do you agree that there is no more sparks after many years of marriage?

Just like night comes and then the day,,there are good days and bad days in life,,Nearly every family has that,all we need is to spend quality time with who we love,,discussions,, and sometimes compromise,,

Thanks kawalnarang, very well said indeed =)) You sounded so wise =)) Yes, it is just the part and parcel of life. It is very important in a marraige that the couple communicate, interact, respect and take care of each other. Have a great day ahead o

i don't agree... my parents were married for almost 21 years and they still like young lovers... i'm afraid that the problem is that both of you are already in the stage of getting tired from exploring other things that can add spice in your married life...

Three cheers for your parents!!! They are really good example to you and to me for keeping marraige alive. Yes, I agree that there will be a time when the marriage become stagnant and it will be up to the couple to make it alive again. Thanks for sharing. Cheers =))

I think that it can happen to even the best marriages. Life just tends to get in the way sometimes and before you know it the spark is gone. Marriage is constant work and if you let it slip then problems start. My husband and I try to keep things going. We are very busy with 3 young children, but we make it work. My parents keep the kids for us once a month and we have a date night. We go out to dinner and then come home and cuddle up together and watch a movie. We try to have fun with each other every day.

Totally agreed to what you said. It is up to us to keep the sparks in our marraige. We also let our daughters stay at my parent's hse during one or two weekend in a month. Then both of us can spend private times together. All the best for your marraige =))
