However, after a few years of marriage, you may begin to lose sight of why you fell in love with your partner. You get caught up in routine and life clouds your vision.

If you are wondering what to do for Valentine’s Day, here’s an idea; spend some time reflecting about how and why you fell in love with your partner. Think back to the moment when realized that you had fallen in love. Was it a special occasion? Did your spouse say or do something that made you realize you had fallen in love with them? If you can’t remember the exact moment that you fell in love, try to recall a special moment that you shared with your partner at the beginning of your relationship.
