then you need to learn how to spice it up! everyday married life isn't like the honeymoon, but it doesn't have to be boring either.
my wife and i have a lot of the same interests and things we like. sometimes when we are laying in bed watching TV, we talk about just about everything under the sun. we talk about movie trivia, baseball, (especially the Texas Rangers!) cars, travel, cooking and so many other things. there is no magical formula for what works. try going out at least once a month on a date, like going out to eat and to a movie. try talking. just having a conversation about anything, a hobbie, a certain movie or sports, just anything. spend quality time together, just enjoying each others company. sitting on the couch watching Tv and holding hands.
i enjoy the time i get to spend with my wife and feel very blessed to have her in my life and feel like a much better person for having her in my life. my wife is the most important person in my life and i tell her that she is. maybe you just need to tell her you love her and how much she means to you, okay?
