When you first met your spouse we’re guessing that there was excitement and mystery between the two of you.

Back then your boyfriend, now husband, would bring you a sunflower with a special written note just for you.

Maybe your girlfriend, now wife, would greet you at the park with a picnic basket full of your favorite treats.

Time passed and the two of you continued to romance each other.

Then you got married.

You saw each other every day

You had kids.

Work became stressful.

Those memories of being romanced and romancing your spouse faded away.

It is time to get the romance back in your marriage.

Here’s the thing and please do not take this the wrong way, the feelings of excitement are going to be different now than when you first met your spouse.

Before we get to the 40 Romantic Ideas, let’s look at a few points on how to use the list:

  1. Date Night/Day. Make it a point to get in at least one date in each month. If you can get in more than do so. Some of these will get you out of the house while others may be at home after the kids go to bed.
  2. Communicate. Your relationship has grown over the years. What you liked when you both first met may be different today. Make sure you ask your spouse how they would like to be romanced.
  3. Inspiration. This list has some obvious romantic ideas. It is our goal to give you inspiration so that you can take it from there. Add your own flare to personalize any of them.
  4. Cost. Romancing your spouse can cost anywhere from nothing to expensive. It’s not how much you spend to romance your spouse, but instead how often you romance each other.
