How to Keep Passion Alive in Your Marriage

By Susie and Otto Collins

One of the top questions couples ask us is how to keep the passion and excitement alive in their marriage.

Our answer to this question may seem glib but we mean it from our hearts--you just "decide" to.

The Latin root of the word "decide" actually means "to cut off." This means to cut off all other possibilities. This means that you've decided that passion is important in your relationship and you're not going to settle for anything less.

So, what happens when you want anything else in your life? You weigh your choices and make a "decision." What if the home or apartment you're living in doesn't meet your needs any more? You can "decide" to find a place that better suits your needs.

We think it's the same way with your marriage. If both you and your spouse want the passion and life to return, the only way it will happen is for you to make a decision for it to happen.

So many of us start marriages unconsciously and don't decide what we want from them. If you want passion in your life, the only way to have it is to decide to in a conscious deliberate way.

So what does it mean to make a decision to have passion in your marriage? For us, it involves many daily decisions that maintain our connection of the heart.

It involves taking the time to talk and to listen, perhaps letting less important things take a back seat. It might involve a decision to turn off the
TV or the computer and take a walk together. You and your spouse must decide what will rekindle your connection.

And then do it.

We've all seen the articles in popular women's magazines--giving you 10 ways to make your relationship sizzle. Those 10 ways usually include a trip to Victoria's Secret and something involving Saran Wrap.

While we're not trying to make light of the suggestions in these magazines, we believe that true passion and intimacy in a marriage only comes when there's a connection of the heart.

And the decision to maintain the connection is continuous one and a conscious one that requires effort.

If passion is missing in your relationships, then one of two things is the case-- either you haven't made passion a priority or the connection of the heart isn't there.

If you haven't made passion a priority, then you can "decide" to make it one. If the connection of the heart isn't there--then you have other challenges that should be addressed.
