You’ve stepped off the plane back from your honeymoon, cleaned up the gift wrapping, and stored the wedding photos; so you’re probably starting to feel that post wedding bliss dissipating in the breeze.

Being married shouldn’t mean the slow agonizing death of romance. Check out these 7 simple ideas you can use to revitalize the romance in your marriage.
Between busy schedules and long days, expressing love can fall by the wayside. We forget to compliment, to give gifts “just because,” to linger in our embrace.

1. Use The Element Of Surprise
When two people spend a lot of time together they may eventually start to take each other for granted. Years of cohabitation means that you become all too familiar with each other’s mannerisms, habits, likes and dislikes.
If you’ve noticed a bit of the mundane entering your relationship, then you should mix it up a little by using the element of surprise. Try doing something you’ve never done before. You could suddenly get up and sing karaoke at the bar you regularly visit, learn some new moves to surprise him with in the bedroom. Even something as simple as an impromptu slow dance on the walk home can do the trick.
Anything you choose to do shouldn’t be completely out of your comfort zone, as you don’t want to appear awkward while you’re performing. It all needs to appear as natural and fluid as possible, or you might just end up embarrassing the both of you.

2. A Secret Romantic Interlude
Make some arrangements for a clandestine meeting without alerting your husband. Just send him a note with information on where and when the meeting is to take place. A post-it-note on his lunch box, prominently displayed on the milk carton, or stuck on the steering wheel of his car will definitely pique his curiosity.
The meeting doesn’t have to be a ritzy or glamorous affair. A romantic dinner at your favorite restaurant will do without stressing the budget. For something a little different try sending him on a scavenger hunt where you are the final prize.
The venue is irrelevant as it’s the building of anticipation that makes this technique so successful.

3. Develop New Skills
Surprise your husband with a virtual tour in wine tasting, with flavors from all over the world. Match that up with a gourmet style dinner you learned how to do in a specialty cooking class.
You will have a romantic getaway with tastes from some of the most romantic countries in the world; and all without leaving your dining room. The only limit is your imagination.
4. Have A Lazy Day In
Sometimes the day should be allowed to set it’s own course without any plans or schedules.
Lie in bed and read the daily paper, help each other with the crossword, or rent out your favorite movie. Take advantage of some nice weather by installing a hammock in your garden and just swing lazily together for an hour or two while you enjoy the sunshine. Don’t worry about cooking (unless you really enjoy that sort of thing), but get dinner delivered for a relaxing night in.
5. Visit Different Areas
We are creatures of habit so it is fairly easy to find ourselves visiting the same places over and over. Boredom can set in but trying something new can really build up some excitement in the relationship.
Things and places to try could be a change of pub or restaurant. If you like movies why not try seeing a live stage show instead, visit the museum, or just try a walk through your national park with a nice picnic afterwards. Not only will you experience something out of the ordinary but these little activities also give you something different to talk about.
6. Pamper Your Partner
Everyone loves a massage so why not enroll the both of you in a course on how to do them properly so you can both take turns treating each other to a professional massage before a nice warm bath or shower.
Using scented oils while doing the massage by candlelight will really add to the romance.
7. Time Travel Back To Your First Date
Reminiscing about your first date together always brings a couple closer together. But actually re-enacting the first date can bring it to a whole new level.
Try going back to the location of your first date and see how many memories you can stir up. Long buried memories always have a habit of resurfacing when couples do this, and because of this it can be an excellent activity for rejuvenating a relationship.
