There are many types of affairs. The most common one that I see is the “unmet needs” affair. The unmet needs affair happens when you feel as though there is something missing in your relationship with your partner.
It’s not fair to think that we can be present at ALL times. In order to do all the things, mamas need to time to themselves, they need that foot massage to get over the hump, and they need to fill their cup so they can give to their people.
Here are 10 things you can do to recharge your batteries that I think are so much better than that crumby foot massage machine:
Your partner has shattered your world. The relationship that you once had is no longer, and maybe you’re still on the fence about staying in the relationship, but you certainly don’t know how to love them at the moment, and should you?
Marriage is hard. What else do we choose to have in our lives, for the rest of our lives? We don’t get to choose our family, for better or worse, we are just born into them. We choose all sorts of other long-term things to be committed to, like a job, a mortgage, a car loan, and possibly education. But none of those things come with contracts that bind us to them until death.
Have you ever had one of those days? I’m talking one of THOSE days. The kind where no matter what you do, and no matter how hard you try, you just can’t pull yourself up and dust yourself off. The kind where even though you truly try to just hit pause, and take a breath, and reset, but the reset just seems like a freakin repeat of what you were trying to reset from.
I actually just had one of those days yesterday.
Is your sex life with your partner like a firework show on the 4th? Or more like a tiny sparkler in the corner of that show?
Either way, it’s important to know that long-term relationships ebb and flow. Things outside the bedroom change, and can cause some major shifts and changes between the sheets.
But how much sex should you be having in order to keep that spark going??
