One of the most prominent questions for couples may very well be: “How do you spice up your marriage?” Some couples have a regular date night while others might tune into the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show every December.
The Angels are busy fluffing their wings for the yearly show, which will air on television in the U.S. on Tuesday, December 9th. This year, the runway will be in the UK for the very first time.
The Victoria’s Secret angels can’t really save a marriage, can they? Sometimes, couples really want to spice things up but aren’t quite sure how to do it without incorporating things like Fifty Shades of Grey. Here’s what you need to know.
Do you really have to spice things up?
First things first: Spicing up your marriage isn’t really mandatory unless you want it to be! If you’re happy with the status quo, good for you! Sometimes, however, it can be nice to add a little excitement to the marriage – and it doesn’t always have to be in the bedroom. Intimacy comes in all forms, and it blossoms when the two of you are really having fun together.
- Wear sexy PJs. You don’t have to don a negligée to heat things up at home; some smokin’ hot pajamas will definitely do the trick! Get your husband involved by asking him what type of PJs he likes. It might surprise you when he says he wants to see you in a pair of his boxers and an old t-shirt!
- Flirt! Just because you’re married doesn’t mean you should stop flirting… with each other! Send naughty messages to each other during the day or slip a note of what’s to come later on that evening into his packed lunch.
- Wear makeup to bed. There’s something to be said about some perfume, smoky eyes, and tousled hair when you hop into bed. Just saying…
- Go dancing. Dancing is sexy, and you don’t have to be good at it. Put on your dancing shoes and turn up the music, even if it is in your own living room.
- A lot. The secret to a real romance is laughter. If you aren’t laughing together, there is definitely something wrong.
This is by no means a complete list of ways to spice up your marriage, so we’ve got a couple of questions for couples. How have you heated things up at home? What’s the most fun? What can you recommend?
