Research has shown that novelty in life can equal happiness. New experiences create dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain. These are the same chemicals generated in early romantic love and even the same potent stuff that come with drugs and other additions.
So rather than eating out at the same old places, going to the same old movie theatre, and spending time with the same old friends, research is suggesting that married couples need to tailor their date nights around new, different, and exciting. Injecting novelty into your relationship is incredibly important to your marriage.
“We don’t really know what’s going on in the brain, but as you trigger and amp up this reward system in the brain that is associated with romantic love, it’s reasonable to suggest that it’s enabling you to feel more romantic love,” - anthropologist Helen E. Fisher.
Men want to emotionally connect to us... and if this is (and often is) by way of activity behind closed doors then perhaps start there. You don't have to get crazy just maybe try being more cleaver about your approach and how you romance him.
The Loving Wives club heard about my blog and sent me the cutest gift package for the holiday season. I was so impressed with how clean and how cleaver they have been with MARRIED friendly and adorable ideas on how to romance your guy. Please visit their website at http://romanticmarriages.com/
