Take the kids to grandma’s for the weekend, or maybe a friend’s house (you can always offer to do that for the other parents in exchange), and either have a staycation or find a little bed and breakfast and just be together. Talk, laugh, and reminisce about old memories as you are making new ones.

Prescription 3: Sex

Uses: To relieve stress, create intimacy, and well … there’s the whole orgasm benefit.

Directions: Get naked. Go from there. Physical closeness can intensify emotional connection.

However you like it, whenever you can … eh … squeeze it in, just get busy. Kids still asleep? Multitask by getting it on in the shower. Get a little dirty before you get clean. The kids have a Saturday afternoon birthday party? Great, have a private party of your own in your birthday suits. Stay up late at least once a week and explore each other’s bodies like you used to. Heck, you might find a new special spot you hadn’t noticed before. Plus … orgasms.

Want to save your relationship? Then bring it on back to the basics of what brought you together in the first place. Date each other, spend time together, and for naked monkey love’s sake … get it on!
