A relationship always starts like a firework. There’s a slow burn - the getting to know each other stage - before the love and the sparks hit. That’s the colour, the fizz and the sparkle. Then there’s a bang and you’re left with smoke and nothing else. However, just because something starts like a firework, doesn't mean it has to end up like one.


Love isn't something that you can predict. It happens when you least expect it to and it’s turbulent, amazing and even sometimes boring. It doesn't matter how long you’ve been with your partner or how many children you do or don't have, love needs to be nurtured. You hear about marriages ending in divorce and you hear about the number of people who let the spark fizzle out and don’t think of each other romantically anymore. Nurturing your relationship is all about embracing romance, and you have to be willing to do that if you want the relationship to last. Whether you decide to this with physical gestures like boxes of chocolates or trips to the jewelers to buy something beautiful, or emotional ones that equal more communication or simply giving your partner your time, you can embrace romance again. You don’t necessarily need exciting and expensive date nights at the best restaurant in town to get it right as a couple, but you do need to consider all the ways that you can love each other again and show that love.
Below, you’ll find some of the nicest suggestions to inject a little romance back into your relationship. It’s not dead, it’s just asleep!


  • Revisiting your first date is always a good way to bring a smile to the face of your partner. Go back to the same place you met and follow the same steps you took together. Reminisce about the original first date and talk about how far you’ve come as a couple. It’s bound to raise a smile.
  • Make time. Even if it’s just an hour, make time for each other. Sit together and enjoy the company. Carve an hour out of your evening as many evenings as you can and ensure that you spend time talking to each other and opening up. Communication is as romantic as it gets.
  • Plan a meal together. Cook side by side - and no back seat cooking - and then sit and eat a meal as a couple. Add wine, candles and even make a dessert. Make the atmosphere a romantic one and enjoy reminding each other how fun you are together.
  • Make it a habit to put your phones down and enjoy each others company. Instead of making a meal once and forgetting it for six months, choose to spend time together once a week instead. You would soon regret if you let your marriage pass you by.
Romance isn’t something that you should ever let go of, and a relationship can only last when each half of the couple enjoys the company of the other.
