Love Coupons to Improve Your Relationships

Sometimes relationships need just a little nudge to rekindle that spark and get you back into the habit of doing the things that will make you feel closer. Unfortunately, we often let other responsibilities such as work and parenting interfere with the bare essentials of making a marriage succeed. Have some fun with this as you begin to toss aside habits that continue to create an emotional distance between you and your partner. You'd be surprised at how your commitment to do such little things as holding your partner's hand or playing footsies can decrease marriage tension and make both of you feel much better. The coupons may seem like small tasks, but they will show your partner that you care and he or she is important. Be creative and make some of your own, too! They'll help you and your partner continue to grow closer.

It's simple!

1. Either print out the coupons and cut along the dotted lines to make a book for your partner, or send each coupon via e-mail with a personal message. However, since we are so often blasted by e-mails, it may enhance the romance if you make a hard copy of your coupons. Add some personal decorations and slip them into places where your partner will be surprised each time he or she receives a coupon. For instance, you could slip one in his shoe, tape it on a mirror, the car steering wheel, around a pager, inside a briefcase or in his underwear drawer! Or, you could send one in the mail addressed to your home. You'll have fun the more creative you are and your partner will appreciate the new spontaneity in your relationship.
